Knitting into the front and back of a stitch or kfb is called a bar increase because it makes a bar and is visible when doing stockinette, like in the egg. A M1, when done right, is pretty invisible.

Thank you to all who emailed me so proptly on my M1 question. One more question though.... Can't I just knit into the front and back of the stitch?

Just pick up the horizontal yarn that lies in between two stitches and put it over your left needle and then knit it like a regular stitch. It will increase your stitches by one without leaving a hole.

Greetings Knitter,
I hope you are all doing well. I don't know about you, but being a
knitter has made me appreciate NY winters more. The worse the
weather, the more reasons I have to stay inside and knit up a storm.
Besides, would I really need that luxuriously soft and warm alpaca
scarf if I lived in San Diego? I say bring on the cold weather. With
the right gear, you can be nice and toasty in any weather. Plus, wool
is water repellent!.

Group News
There is no meeting this week, but don't think the asst. organizers
and I are just sitting by relaxing. For you fabulous knitters, we
have two things. First, Knitting in the Round 101 will be held next
week on the 20th. In this mini-lesson, I hope to cover the basics
(how to cast - on, join the circle, and make a simple hat). In terms
of supplies, you will need 16 in length circular needles, worsted
weight yarn and DPNs in the same size as your circulars. I will have
extra needles on hand in case you don't have any. If you are
interested in either being a student or a teacher, please email me.
Already, Molly has volunteered to instruct someone.
Second, we are having a last minute easter egg contest! That's
right... you read it correctly, E...A..S...T...E...R E...G...G...S.
We are asking all you knitters to make adorable egg. Click on the link
here for the pattern and more pics. The person who makes the most
adorable / creative egg will win something courtesy of etsy.com. The
pattern, stuffing, laughs help and encouragement will be provided at
the next meeting. You provide the needles, yarn and positive
disposition. The eggs are knit flat and mattress stitched up. It can
be easily completed during a single meet-up. If you are interested,
please email me.

Crafty Goodness
a) Christina, organizer of the meet-up "Craft Haus", is looking for
teachers with expertise in quilting, pattern-making, fabric painting,
spinning, jewelry making, knitting, crochet, etc... She is willing to
offer MONEY to teachers, especially if they can do more than one
craft. Contact her if interested.
b) The Textile Study Group of NY is sponsoring a lecture by Ann Clarke
on March 19th at 7 pm. Ann is a knitter who creates one-of-a-kind
wearable art (coasts, jackets and hats) using wool yarn that is
knitted, felted pieced together by hand and embellished with
needlepoint. Go to www.tsgny.org for more details.
c) Smiley's Yarn Store in Queens is having a sale from Monday, March
10th through Saturday, March 15th.
d) The Point Cafe in Manhattan has a new colors of my favorite yarns,
Misti Alpaca and Malabrigo.
e) Two meetings ago, several knitters were commenting on the scarf I
was knitting (see pics above). It's the "My So Called Scarf" pattern
and the pattern can be found here.

Take Care,
Archie
