A favorite part of our meetings is Show and Share. Members model or show their finished knitted items and discuss special features of the item, yarn substitutions, and sizing and style modifications. It is a great opportunity to see patterns knit up into garments and learn about the experiences of other knitters. Participate in the sharing…….Download Show and Share Form……Fill it out at home when you have information about your item at hand. Bring the competed form (and your knitted item) with you to a monthly meeting.
