Always a fun night, dears! Thanks to those who joined us on this beautiful Chicago evening.

I am super excited for our members who participated in the hat demo… this is just the beginning of many, fun knitting projects. The patterns explain the next steps, but if you’re more of a visual person (ahem, like me) then this video might be very helpful especially when it comes time to decrease. Check it out (don’t mind the robotic voice) and as always feel free to let me know if you have any questions.


And if you have any suggestions for our future meetings, please send them to


It’s about that time for some stitchy fun!
