Converting Hand Knitting patterns

Notices:

Delphine attended the National Guild Day/AGM of the Machine Knitters Guild, which was well attended with at least 120 participants (most ever). As well as the usual yarn stands, there was a very interesting demonstration on knitting with wire.

Next year is the 25th Anniversary of the Guild and the National Guild Day/AGM is to be held in Hampshire.

 For the rest of our meeting Nora showed us how she converts hand knitting patterns so they can be used on a machine.
