October 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 October 31 will be included in November’s Virtual Show and Share. 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.

Garment #1: “I used dark greens with a sprinkle of turquoise to knit mitered squares. I placed them on point and added turquoise buttons for this cardigan.”
Garment #2: “I knit entrelac triangles and placed them on the diagonal. Then I picked-up stitches to knit the yokes in stripes of green, salmon, terra cotta. Back of #2: I knit smaller entrelac triangles and placed them differently on the back. Then I connected them with mitered stripes.”
