CLOSED Fiberside Chats: Melissa Leapman August 28th

Join Melissa Leapman on August 28 for a Fiberside Chat. You'll explore an unusual (but exciting!) slip stitch technique and get the chance to see what's new with one of America's most prolific designers and authors.  There is an opportunity for some hands on experience with the Slip Stitch Technique.  Come to the chat prepared with a small bit of homework and you can knit along with Melissa during the chat.  

Those who would like to learn the technique should do a teensy bit of homework so everyone's ready at the same time:

With smooth worsted weight yarn and appropriate size knitting needles, cast on 23 stitches. Work K1P1 Rib for 1", then knit one row and purl one row. Slip stitches onto a holder with the yarn still attached.

Supplies: Printed handout ready to go, one homework piece with the yarn still attached; additional worsted weight yarn in a sharply contrasting color; appropriate size knitting needles; sticky note.
