November 2021 ACTIVITIES – WHAT’S ON YOUR NEEDLES?
Show and Share is currently a virtual activity and includes Knit@Nite photos.
To participate, send your photos* and descriptions to Kerry Nare – either via text message (preferred) or email (Kerry’s phone number and direct email address can be found in the Guild Directory.) Image file sizes should be as large as possible for clarity (ideally greater than 500 kb please). Keep in mind that projects show up best against solid backgrounds. Include a description of your project, pattern and designer name, yarn used, how you came to knit your project, and any other information you wish viewers to know, and when texting be sure to include your name! Items received after November 31 will be included in January’s Virtual Show and Share (visit the December 2021 Fashion Show for December’s photos). Note – while there is no set deadline for submissions, please submit your projects by the 4th Monday of the month to ensure it is posted before the next News Blast goes out.
* Did you know? Smart phones have much better cameras than iPads or tablets, so if you have a choice, take your photos with your phone. You can text photos directly from your phone, no need to download first.
Click on any photo in the Gallery to enlarge or start a slide show, then scroll down to read details regarding the photos. For convenience, new photos will be added at the beginning of the gallery as they arrive, so check back periodically.
After you view this month’s photos, check out the new compendium of Guild Photo Galleries, found on the drop-down menu under the Guild Info tab.
Details regarding project photos
Photo (1) Carol Myers – Christmas Stockings
“I knitted five personalized holiday stockings for a client. Three for her grandkids Eve, Cole , Avery, and two for her dogs Sake, Sushi. The yarn used is Berroco Ultra Wool, Plymouth Brushed Alpaca, Doucette et Soie, and Cascade Eco. Thankfully lined by expert quilter, Pam K.” [Note: Carol knitted these based on an older stocking provided by the client, a pattern was not available. Carol is no longer taking commissions for Christmas stockings!]
Photos (2): Colleen – “Crumb” Cardigan and Asymmetric Cardigan
“#1: My “Crumb” cardigan has vertical stripes ranging from green to aqua to blue to lavender. I gathered up bags of leftover yarns as my inspiration to use them up.
#2: This asymmetrical freeform design has yellow, terra cotta, taupe and lavender. I included a little bargello, honeycomb, short rows with stripes. “
Teri Saisho – Abstract Hat
“This is a Fair Isle pattern knit on a machine. I used a Brother 270 electronic machine. The Fair Isle pattern is already programmed in the machine. I just need to push a few buttons and thread the two yarns. So much fun! and yes, there are floats.”
