March is here already

Gosh, another month gone by! It's time for me to tell you what's happening at our March meeting.
On Tuesday 6th March Gillian Lamb is coming to show us some multidirectional knitting. This is a technique for knitting a garment that often has only 2 ends to sew in when you've finished and very little making up. It is used mainly by hand knitters, but were working hard to translate it into machine knitting. If you're coming along, bring a pair of knitting needles and some yarn with you, so you can have a go. Gillian will be showing us some garments and samples knitted using the technique. The methods works for everything from knitted garments, to accessories, footware and it is also a much more interesting way of working squares for blankets.
I'm looking forward to a really interesting evening.
