The Armonk Knitting Circle group welcomes all knitters/crocheted, no matter what their skill level.  We have helped many "new" knitters. Yes, gals are working on their own projects, but happily put their project down to help another knitter with anything they need. 
Our group is friendly and supportive. 
We would welcome you, Wilma, if you choose to stop by some time.   Joan

Hi Wilma,

We welcome people of all experience levels, and as others have said, we’re glad to offer guidance and advice. I simply wanted to make sure that it was clear this wasn’t a class setting. If someone came to a meeting expecting a class with a planned project and an instructor with a lesson plan, they would be disappointed.

Wilma,

We have had beginners come and get better. As Teresa pointed out she has taught a couple of people how to spin on a drop spindle and I have helped people with knitting. Yes we are experienced but some of us do enjoy helping others learn. If you want to reconnect with knitting, please come. If it is a meeting I am coming to, I would be happy to reacquaint you with knitting.

Hi Shelley


Thanks for sharing.  If ithis group is  designed for people that are already knitting and crocheting., and  working on projects, then I guess this is not the group for me.   I will Look into Armonk’s group and see what they are all about. 

I will let Lucinda know that I will not be joining.

I just want to emphasize that our group is primarily knitters, crocheters and spinners who meet to socialize, rather than a class. If someone comes to our meetings with a project underway, we are happy to offer advice or a little help, but we don’t have a structured project prepared for someone to learn to knit.

I’m not familiar with Armonk’s resources, but I have seen knitting classes offered by our local town recreation programs and continuing-ed programs, so maybe the Armonk recreation program or continuing ed. offers knitting classes as well.

We have a new member, Wilma, who will come to our next meeting (not today's).  See her message below.

Can anyone suggest to her what needles and materials she should buy to learn how to knit?

Also, she lives in Armonk - are there knitting groups there that welcome beginners?

Dear Joe and Lucinda

Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend today's class. I am a BC patient. Just got through doing radiation and I am extremely tired today.

Also, I asked about materials I would need to bring with me to do the class, but did not get a response on that.

If , I need to bring materials, I need to know what I need so I come prepared.

My interest in learning how to spin and reconnect with knitting, is for one to get off the treadmill of doctor appointments, treatments and having 
cancer 24/7 on mind. “I want to do something funâ€� and relaxing for me as part of my healing regiment. Two, I like to create projects that I can bring 
back to the Cancer Treatment Center where I am being treated as gifts for other patients going through and even encourage others to join 
something fun and healing.

First Sunday, will not be good for me to attend, as I reconnecting to going back to church. Saturdays will be good.

I pray to join the next Saturday Class.

Thank You . Have a great weekend.

Wilma

OT: Politics *and* Ravelry!

Knitting Community Bans Millions of Users From Posting Support for Trump - Newsweek

Re: OT: Politics *and* Ravelry!

Have yet to read the article, but I must say this based on your message: Ravelry has about 8 million members. Millions are not being banned. Only thing banned is outright support for an administration that supports white supremacy. If a user refrains from exhibiting support for hate, she is not banned. In all, very few will be banned...certainly not millions or even thousands... I would be surprised if it rises to hundreds.

The headline is deceptive. Ravelry is not banning millions, just ones who publically support white supremacy.

Introducing Beautiful Burnish!

Like the moon making a guest appearance at life’s great parties, our Little Moons Lace Wrap brings a special glow to summer weddings, beach bonfires, and backyard potlucks! We knit up this beauty in our brand new yarn, Burnish. A rayon made from bamboo fiber, Burnish looks and behaves a lot like silk but is more durable, machine washable, and vegan… Very nice and 15% off through Sunday!



15% Off Through Sunday!

The beauty of bamboo-based Burnish is that it manifests the refinement and grace of silk without requiring animal products or precious care! One hundred grams of fingering-weight Burnish yields a generous 339 yards, and you'll need four skeins for our Little Moons Lace Wrap. We’re also casting on for three-season scarves and sweaters and love the willowy drape and super clean stitch definition!

Lendrum

Shelley Reid
 

Hey all—

I got a Lendrum folding wheel at a rummage sale; it has only one bobbin. So far the bobbin chatters wayyyy too much for me to enjoy spinning on it, and I’m going down the list of potential fixes. I’ve replaced footman connectors/drive band and brake band, oiled everything, put on new footpads where the old ones had fallen off. I put on a nylon washer in front of the bobbin on the flyer rod. The bobbin itself appears to be knocking from side to side, not front to back.

So my question is: is there a Lendrum upright spinner who’d be willing to bring their wheel to a future meeting soon and may I try a little swapping to experiment? I would absolutely love to try swapping out 1) a bobbin 2) the flyer 3) the whole maiden assembly. If any one of those things is quiet, then I would try buying new; heck, even a complete maiden assembly is pretty cheap if it means the wheel would work well. And even if I end up reselling the wheel, I want it to be in good working condition when passing it on.

Hi all--

Last meeting we talked about the apparent drop-off in attendance, so I thought I'd put a poll out there to gauge continued interest in the group. I'd be grateful if everyone weighed in. Pease select the option that best reflects how you feel about the group.

1. I have been attending regularly and hope to continue to do so.
2. There is something going on in my life that has kept me from attending, but I hope to be able to resume attending in the near future.
3. I would like to attend, but the Saturday meetings don't work for me. I would come if the Sunday meetings were resumed.
4. I would like to attend, but I don't foresee myself coming any time soon because of other commitments.
5. I am not interested in coming to meetings anymore, but stay in the group to keep up with everyone via the email group.
6. I'm not interested in being part of the group anymore but haven't gone to groups.io to formally leave it.
7. For those who aren't interested anymore: please check here if something specific has changed that has made meetings less enjoyable for you.

Three ply

Teresa Ambrose
 

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far. It is beautiful here in Maine! Not too hot and always a nice breeze. 

I am working on 2lbs of fleece I bought at CT sheep and wool that was so old it was a bit felted but I got through the carding process finally! When you are doing a 3 ply yarn and run out of singles on one or more of the bobbins what do you do? I am tempted to put all three back on the wheel and fill them up just joining where the plying left off and filling the bobbins. I have done 3 ply before but can’t remember what I did! What do you all do? 

I miss you all and hope you are having a nice summer.

Love
Teresa

Re: Three ply

Lucinda Shastid
 

Yes, I've done what you suggested.  If you have more fiber to spin, I think it's the best way.

When I run completely out of fiber from one bobbin, I Andean-wrap (whatever it's called - make a two-ply bracelet of the remaining yarn) the larger amount and do a 3-ply from it and the smaller bobbin.  When I only have one bobbin left, I chain-ply it.  Alternatively, I can chain-ply the second bobbin and then continue the chain-ply with the third bobbin, but the chain-ply is slightly different (the "knot" from where the chain happens) so I prefer to do a true three-ply whenever possible.
