To be content in life, you must have a passion. Ours is knitting.

We are a diverse group of creative knitters and crocheters who meet on the first Tuesday of every month over Zoom! Once the pandemic settles, we will resume in-person meetings at a to-be-determined location. We do have an engaged online membership as well, so we will continue to offer online meetings in addition to the in-person ones. Our membership is open to knitters and crocheters of all ages and skill levels. Come check out our next meeting – your first visit is free!

UPCOMING:

January 22, 2022: Soxpertise with Kate Atherley

A pile of beautiful knitted socks

You’ve worked a few socks, now it’s time to expand your skills a bit. In this class, you’ll learn how determine size and fit needs, how to choose a good yarn and reinforce for longevity. We’ll address the tricky bits like how to avoid holes at the top of your heel, how to get a tidy gusset pick up, and special cast-ons and cast offs. We’ll talk about both toe up and top down socks, and discuss different heel and toe constructions – and when to choose one over another.

Tickets to Soxpertise are available here!

skill level: intermediate; students must have knitted a few pairs of socks

January 23, 2022: Introduction to Technical Editing with Kate Atherley

Interested in what a technical editor does? Thinking of expanding your skillset and product offerings? The technical editor is a vital part of the pattern publication process, helping designers turn their notes and outlines into patterns ready for publication. Training in technical editing also makes you a better teacher and pattern writer, enhancing your understanding of how patterns work and how to read and write them.

This introductory-level session gets you started down the path. We’ll explain the role of the technical editor in the pattern development and publication process. We’ll dive deep into the different types of reviews required: language, numbers and usability. And we’ll explain the value of the pattern style sheet: what it includes, how to establish one, and how to edit a pattern to meet specific requirements.

Tickets to Intro to Technical Editing are available here!
