October Meeting

Another new month and another meeting for the members of our club, and a couple of new faces to welcome!
Tonight we didn't have a speaker, but split into several groups for different things.
One group discovered more about Designaknit, the computer programme for designing knitwear and patterning, not just for machine knitting but for hand knitting too! Thanks to Carol for bringing in her laptop and showing us!

Another group tackled Tunisian crochet, and were surprised to find it is quite easy and fun!

Chris kindly taught a new member how to hand knit, and had a brilliant pupil, who could cast on and off, knit, purl and garter stitch by the end of the evening, and it was all so neat. The ideal pupil!
There was a lot of chatter, about the shows, where to buy knitting supplies, and other assorted subjects.
