You Only Knit Twice

Last month our June meeting featured the topic "You Only Knit Twice" -- i.e. double knitting. We were visited by double-agent for double-knitting Ivanna Knitsalotskya, who unraveled the mysteries of making secret little pockets for hiding microfiche flash drives and SDHC cards. Don't forget that August and September will feature "Live and Let Dye" and "Socktopussy." Our July meeting is our annual patriotic potluck. Be sure to bring size 7 or 8 knitting needles.

Show and tell was particularly spectacular.

Yes, that's really a yarn-bombed chair!

A large and delicate shawl.

Here's a split-square shawl. This is basically two triangular shawls worked together. The split allows the finished shawl to hang nicely and stay on the shoulders.

This last one is a textured blanket. While it shouldn't be a terribly difficult knit, it is a striking fine design.
