The Knitting Guild of Greater Buffalo fosters the highest standards of excellence in the practice of knitting through an active program of education and study, promoting interest, appreciation, and skill.
2019 Guild Knit-a-Long
We are presenting a series of ten shawls chosen for multiple reasons. Some are designed by guests of the Guild. One is designed by a member! Others are chosen to highlight the yarns of our member vendors, and many are included to inspire you to learn techniques transferable to other projects. You can view the suggested bundle on Ravelry. Just click HERE to read the details of the individual patterns. You can browse on Ravelry as a guest, but we sure wish you would join to keep track of Guild events.
We are also encouraging members to use up those bits and bobs and explore helical knitting. Here is Sharon’s pattern to get you started! Be sure to bring your striped wonders to the June meeting for our end of year show and tell!
We believe you will be very excited about the social knitting opportunities we have designed for you to work on this project during the 2019/2020 Guild season.
Now that we are heading into the Buffalo winter, a reminder that we follow the Sweet Home School District’s weather related closing schedule, including after school activities. Please be sure to check before heading out!
