SACRAMENTO MACHINE KNITTING GUILD
OK lets have some fun knitting
Sacramento, CA - Sacramento Machine Knitters Guild, 2nd & 4th Thursdays 10-noon we are also open from 10 to 2 on the 3rd tusday for loner sessions at St. Andrews United Methodist Church, 6201 Spruce Ave (off I80 at Greenback exit, turn right at first street, up about 2 blocks, bear right at the curve and the church is straight ahead). . Visit the website.
- Take around 40 plastic bags that are clean and 'not' made of degradable plastic. Degradable bags are often marked proudly as such, and will disintegrate after a few months. Cut the seam off the bottom of a bag and remove the handles. Flatten out your bag and cut it in a long spiral from top to bottom, into one long strip 3cm (1in) wide. See this artice for more information on preparing the bag prior to knitting.2
- Cast on as many stitches as you want with needles around size 3-4mm, until your work is as wide as you want your bag to be.
- 3Knit until your work is twice as long as you want your bag to be. If you get to the end of a piece of "yarn", tie the end to the end of another piece and continue to knit. (Alternatively, you can knit with two strands for a few inches and then drop the old "yarn" and continue with the new.)
- 4Cast off and fold your work in half. Sew up the sides of your bag with more strips of plastic - use a crochet hook, as it won't make as many holes in the existing strips as a yarn needle will.
JUST A NOTE
