For our November meeting we got the last installment of Nancy Davis’s MKAL (and here are instructions to line the bag). Turns out it’s a multi use project, it can be a bag, a yarn holder, or a candle cozy! Then we had a program on cables led by Karen Schlabaugh, with some lovely examples of cabled sweaters.
This month we will be learning about cables with Karen Schlabaugh, and Nancy Davis will introduce us to the next section of our MKAL. Join us on November 13th from 6pm-8pm. We hope we see you there!
This month, we’ll be starting the second installment of out Mystery Knit Along (MKAL) with Nancy Davis. Following that, Brenda Pilger will be teaching us about various cast-ons. Please join us! This month’s meeting will be on Tuesday, October 9 from 6-8pm at the Harvey County Health Department Building. See full post for Knit Along supply list and instructions for part 1.
At the last meeting, Nancy introduced us to the first part of her mystery knit-a-long (MKAL). If you want to join us on this fun project, here is a copy of the instructions: MKAL September – November 2018.
Next Marnette shared with us her experiences with using natural dyes. She brought some example skeins, and told us how we could get a variety of hues with different mordants and dye ingredients. Some books for further information include “Nature Provides Dyes for Rainbows” by Carol Leigh, “The Dye-Pot” by Mary Frances Davidson, and “A Weaver’s Garden” by Rita Buchanan.
Congratulations to our Kansas State Fair winners! Shana Thornhill, Lorrie Kessler, Suzanne Haney, and Joan Hutter.

Monday, June 11 is International Yarn Bombing Day. Let’s get together in downtown Newton to do some yarn-bombing that evening. We’ll meeting at Military Park by the Newton Public Library, by the cannon sculpture, at 5:30 PM. We will take our knitted items and yarn bomb SOMETHING in that area, two or three somethings if we have enough yarn items. Feel free to join us, and bring a knitted or crocheted square or two (12″ x 12″ish) to contribute if you can. We will be done before 6:30. Also, June 16 is official “Knit in Public” day, so gather some friends and find a public venue to knit! Otherwise there is no meeting in June.
