The ongoing closure of the Joslyn Center means we will  be holding our general meetings virtually for the foreseeable future.  We will continue using the Zoom service (see below for more information about the Zoom service). 

A big shout-out to Joan Whitten for presenting our September program covering Mosaic Knitting! She not only demystified this technique but also enlightened us on Barbara Walker and her books documenting the many stitch patterns. Join our December program for Joan and Monika R's follow-up session on Slipped Stitches!  To see some photos of the sample from Joan's workshop, click here.

 

Our October program is a discussion on our tendency to be perfectionists, and how we set up expectations for our projects to be perfect. Why do we do this? How can we destress this situation? What are some strategies we can employ to ensure we finish our projects rather than setting them aside and create more WIPs? Join us as we dive into crafting standards - reasonable and unreasonable. 

We will continue to use the Zoom service for our meetings while we are unable to meet together at the Joslyn Center (Zoom provides online meeting services for telephone or video meetings).  This means that we can all "meet" together and stay separate in our own homes.  We will also use Zoom for other times we want to gather together (such as Daily Social Knitting (which includes our WIP club on Wednesdays, Happy Hour on Fridays and Sit 'n Knit on the second and fourth Sunday).
