South Bay Machine Knitting Meetup Group, December

Bring your machine and knit.

Topic update: I've been experimenting with the "Ricki Mundstock Magic Cable" so I'll demo that, as well as regular cables. And some more on using the built-in patterning, such as single-motifs. Does anyone else want to volunteer to do a demo? As always, most of the time will be free-form, learning from each other.

Beginners are always welcome, there'll be a machine available for newcomers to try out, and advice on what to buy. If you have a knitting machine that you don't know how to use, bring it along and we'll help you get started.

Bring a lunch for yourself, or there are restaurants within walking distance. There's a sink in the room, but no fridge or microwave.

A $3 donation is requested towards the room and Meetup fees. Guests and first-time attendees are free.


Approximate agenda:

10:00 Setup and questions.

Show up whenever you can. The first hour or so is for setup, socializing and beginner help.

11:00 Announcements, followed by Show & Tell.

11:30 Demo by Adrienne: Faux cables; single-motif patterns.

12:30 Lunch. Eat in the room or go out.

Afternoon: Freeform. Bring your machine, some yarn and your questions.

5:00 Pack up

    Did you see that Joanns is advertising its craft rooms free of charge to crafting Meetups? Perhaps we could do the occasional meeting in Fremont to accommodate our more northern members.

      That sounds awesome! Driving an hour to Campbell vs Driving 20 minutes to Fremont sometimes sounds good to me!

      Yes, great idea. Maybe we can set up something for March, as the library room is not available.

    Adrienne, did you ever find the manual for the Sk101? :)
    Still having a hard time finding one.
    Hope all is well!
