Quarterly Knit Challenge

Each quarter we will be hosting a knitting challenge. A topic will be selected and it will be up to the guild member to interpret that topic into a finished item. The only requirement is that the item be knitted. What the knitter uses as a medium and subject is up to them. 
At the end of the challenge all the items will be displayed and a draw will be made. So put you’re thinking caps on and get creative.

This quarter is “Show Your Color Inspiration” Sep 13, 2021-Jan 10th, 2022.

Our knitting challenge is to show us your color inspiration. Using a picture as inspiration for the colors you choose, knit a pillow, at least 8″ square using five or more colors. Use any color technique, and it can be knit flat or in the round. Send us a pic of your final project and your inspiration picture by Jan 3, 2021 ( A week before our January meeting)
