Just as I was wrapping up my teaching residency with the Hudson River Museum, they invited me to stay on for a new program. The Fiber Friends knitting & crochet group has been so successful, we’ve decided to extend the it for a few more months! The name has changed to Crafting Community, however it is still FREE. We’ll continue getting together on the second Saturday of each month from 2-4 PM to knit, crochet, do needlework and (of course) eat cookies. I’ll now be offering an optional craft activity, for those who are between projects, want to try something new, or just can’t resist another WIP.
In celebration of their peacock-themed fall exhibit, I’ve designed a peacock plumage scarf pattern. It’s a great first lace project, and an easy memorizable pattern for advanced knitters. If you can knit and purl, you can make this scarf. The Museum provides acrylic yarn, although I suggest bringing your own size 10.5 needles. The Peacock Plumage Scarf (Ravelry link) pictured in the post used one skein of Red Heart Super Saver (worsted weight yarn) in Turquoise for a six foot long scarf.
I’ll be giving out the pattern for free and be on hand to assist you on November 8th at the Hudson River Museum. After that, the pattern will be available on Ravelry for purchase only.
So come stop by, pick up a free pattern and have a cookie.
We’ll be delighted if you stay and stitch!
We had our first Crafting Community in October and it was full of lovely ladies starting a peacock scarf or working their own projects, nibbling on a batch of Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cookies. We’re looking forward to November’s gathering to show off our Rhinebeck Sheep & Wool Festival goodies.
