Awesome Knitting Art Exhibit in Chicago

Today I read this review on one of my favorite knitting blogs of an interactive knitting art exhibit in Chicago. It closes today, but hopefully you can enjoy reading about it and looking at the pictures, anyway. The way Franklin describes how he felt at the exhibit sounds like an almost spiritual experience; very interesting. I hope you all enjoy the pictures, the concept, and his review!

Picking Up Stitches

Here are some great tutorials I found for how to pick up stitches. I have had several questions about this recently, so if you're wondering, here you go!

Meeting change!

The Meeting this Tuesday, February 17, is no longer going to be on colorwork; that meeting has been moved back, probably to next week.
This week, we will be tackling how to knit in the round! This is a very important skill that I have been getting a lot of questions about recently, so everyone bring either a set of four or five double pointed needles or a circular needle (preferable 12-20 inches long, no longer). If you do not yet have double pointed or circular needles and want me to bring extras for you to learn on, please email me as soon as possible at bsuknitcrochet AT gmail DOT com.

Also, the movie night is THIS FRIDAY!! We'll be handing out directions to Katie's house at the meeting Tuesday, so come come come! We'll work out movies and rides at the meeting, so everyone be there. If you cannot come, again, email me as soon as possible saying you want to come to the movie night but cannot come to the meeting and I'll send you directions or get you a ride.

Hope to see you all there!
