Programs are held at the Mt. Pleasant Library in Pleasantville, NY.
Sit and Knit starts at 5:45 PM; the program at 7:00. Free for members. Guests welcome.
Celebrate the new year with the guild on January 27th! Desserts and coffee will be on hand and prizes will be raffled off.
The theme of the night is charity knitting and this year we are focusing on two different projects:
preemie hat pattern
Here is a quick pattern for a simple, rolled edge, stockinette hat using fingering weight yarn; great for sock weight leftovers.
Using either 4 or 5 size 2 double pointed needles, cast on 72 stitches and divide them between the needles.
Start knitting around being careful not to twist the stitches and knit for 4”. On the next round, begin decreasing as follows:
Round 1: *(Knit 6, knit 2 together), repeat from * around
Round 2: *(Knit 5, knit 2 together), repeat from * around
Round 3: *(Knit 4, knit 2 together), repeat from * around
Round 4: *(Knit 3, knit 2 together), repeat from * around
Round 5: *(Knit 2, knit 2 together), repeat from * around
Round 6: *(Knit 1, knit 2 together), repeat from * around
Round 7: *(Knit 2 together), repeat from * around
You can either cut the yarn and weave in the ends or work an i-cord for a few inches and then knot it.
from the St. Bartholomew’s soup kitchen staff
We received this message from the St. Bartholomew's Soup Kitchen Staff regarding the scarves the Guild knit for the soup kitchen. We feel you all were so generous, talented and inspirational. We’ve never felt so excited about being involved in such a project. Thank you all!

We passed out the scarves today, and they were a huge success. Our guests were so appreciative.
