The sock knitting workshop was a great success in the hands of a very capable teacher, Lynne (pictured here with the sock we were going to knit). We had visitors from the Up the M4 Ravelry group and the West Ryde group, about twenty-five participants in all. Marie from Lush Yarn supplied yummy candy for us all. We learned how to do a tubular or invisible cast on, knit in the round on our choice of needles, create a heel flap using slipped stitches, turn a heel, create a heel gusset, create a toe and graft using Kitchener stitch. Most finished one small sock and everyone learned something new. There was a lot of laughter and everyone thought it a success. Shown here is a photo of Diane's completed sock as a Christmas ornament.
We are a diverse group of people who share a common interest in the craft of knitting. Beginners, experienced and expert knitters, we meet every third Saturday of the month, at the Blaxland Neighbourhood Centre, located next to the Library. From 1:30 till 4:30pm we have workshops, Show and Tell, as well as afternoon tea and time for chat. Books and patterns are available from our small lending library. Non-members are welcome to attend.
