February 2014 - New Cast On Methonds

Last night's guild meeting was all about new ways to cast on our knitting!  We all pulled out some extra needles and crochet hooks and tried the following cast ons: Backward Loop, Long Tail (sling shot and thumb methods), Chained, Alternating Long Tail, Channel Island and the 2 Colour Braid.

Alternating Long Tail - see the purl sts?

Channel Island - Decorative Edging

Of course there was show and tell of the projects we finished since last month and ones that are still being worked on.  This mitten was a conversation starter!
Last month we talked about knit doilies and our Knitters didn't waste any time trying out the patterns that were shared that night.  Beautiful knitting ladies!!
