Mosaic Knitted Pouches
Wednesday, March 21st
Are you intrigued by color work but intimidated by the idea of having to manage two or more yarns across a row? Then mosaic knitting may be the thing to try. Mosaic knitting is an interesting technique where you will use multiple colors, but each row is worked with only one. The magic happens when you add slipped stitches. The end result is a dense sturdy fabric perfect for these pouches. This project is worked flat. The pattern gives you a choice of three sizes to make ranging from 3" x 3.75" to 5.5" x 5.75".

Time: 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Box Drape Vest

Not only easy to make but an easy fit! The vest can be worn open or wrapped with a belt. The basket weave stitch makes for lovely reversible folds.

As many of you know, Sandee has been actively knitting on a CSM (circular sock machine) using the Elrbacher Gearhart manufactured in Cape Girardeau, MO. This machine is a reproduction of the original Gearhart made in the late 1800's and early 1900's. She is having a lot of fun and is always happy to show you this great machine, tell you about the family that is manufacturing it and show you the socks she has made. Several people already own one and a group is forming to inspire each other. If you are interested in purchasing or joining the group, stop by the shop or give Sandee a call.
