Summer Fling: A Day to Unwind

Who: Knitters of all ages, all skill-levels
What: A relaxed day of knitting, learning, and socializing
Where: Batavia Public Library, 10 S. Batavia Avenue, Batavia IL 60510
When: Saturday, August 18, 2018, 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Why: What’s better than a day knitting with friends?

The morning session will be a group class of Mosaic Knitting taught by Darlene Joyce from Mosaic Yarn Studio, Mount Prospect, IL. Mosaic Knitting is an easy way to work with two colors—you never have to knit with two colors at once, and the pattern is created by slipping stitches. Participants will need to bring 2 skeins of contrasting colors of (smooth) worsted weight yarn, and size 8 needles.

Then we will have lunch and a little shopping! Mosaic Yarn Studio, Backyard Fibers (Chicago, IL) and Argyle Lane Pottery will all be there. In the afternoon, we will have knitting patterns for a variety of make-and-take washcloths. Bring your favorite needles, size 7-9; cotton yarn will be provided, but feel free to bring something from your own stash! If you prefer to work on another knitting project in the afternoon, that’s ok too!
