November intro 2013

intarsia, coaster color, and ginger cookies

Intarsia Coasters

 

This month we’re working with color knits and Intarsia for the technique.

The project is for coasters using two colors and the Intarsia technique (video link). It’s a great way to learn the process if you’ve never done it before. If you’re more adventurous, you could adapt if for a pillow top or even a blanket! There’s also a video for making a yarn “butterfly”- a good way to manage the smaller lengths of yarn.

Our recipe this month is for ginger cookies.

We’ll be meeting this month at the shop  on November 10th, from 4:00 to 6:00pm. The time is a bit later because it’s also the downtown open house.

Anyone that wants to join us by skype, please let me know.

Check the  forums!  Sign in and introduce yourselves if you haven’t done so already! It’s also a place where you can share your progress and ask questions. Some of you have even posted photos for us all to see and that’s always fun, too! I’d love to see more of that happening!

And remember, I’m always listening for suggestions of future projects and techniques.
