Do you remember the topic of our April meeting?
We want to acknowledge and thank Jenna, member of the Buffalo Knitting Guild and owner of 716Yarn for her generosity of time and talent when she stepped in as presenter to teach the Guild back in April. Her focus was on the different techniques of dying yarns and the subsequent result in a knitted garment. From self-striping to ‘splatter’ dying and all kinds of creativity in between, Jenna explained these processes from a dyer’s point of view. With each different dying technique, Jenna also had examples of these yarns knitted mostly into socks to show us what the end result would look like.
Jenna talked on how she enjoys experimenting to create new, unique features of dying. One could easily get caught up simply in the names of her original yarns. She explained how dye lots or color combinations can be custom ordered through her.

JANUARY MEETING AGENDA
For our meeting THIS Thursday, January 5 please remember to bring:
- Any item you have already made for our furry friends
- Your giving heart and a decision whether you are going to knit for a dog or a cat
- scrap yarn, needles, and basic supplies
We look forward to seeing you!
PS The on-line fashion show from the November meeting as well as last week’s blog entry took a hiatus due to the holiday. We will resume all activity this week.
This year’s charity knitting are simple little projects for our furry friends being cared for at our local SPCAs. We are putting a little love into our hearts and knitting for them in January. Some of you may want to come to the meeting with a few items already knitted with the intent of those items being added to our donations. Knowing there are a few willing and eager knitters in our Organization, we have collected and included a few [FREE] patterns for you to consider. We will add these patterns to our Resource Page, as well for everyone’s convenience. Of course, Ravelry offers a wider selection. Just go to the Patterns tab and type in the search box ‘knitting for animals’.
