Ann Oswald posed the knitting challenge for the November meeting: “Keeping it Simple“. The guidelines are:
- Any item
- Knit and purl stitches only – NO OTHER STITCHES (except cast on and cast off)
- Any yarn or textures
- Can include different yarn in the same item
- Yarn MUST be monochromatic
- Item can use any craft, e.g. weaving, knitting, crochet, etc. but must be simple
