CHA show with Deborah Norville

We just returned from our annual Craft and Hobby trade show in Anaheim, California, and WOW– it was 4 full days packed with a lot of fun as we were able to see all the new crafts coming out this fall.  We met a lot of new visitors at our booth and a special one, Deborah Norville who is now, a new Knitting Board owner. Deborah stopped by our booth to enjoy our 48″ X 60″ Berry Burst afghan. It was knit on our 28″ Knitting Board with the Deborah Norville Serenity Chunky which is a super chunky, soft yarn and makes a great cozy afghan. This yarn is great for Knitting Boards as it works up really quickly.  You may want to try this for your next cozy afghan in any size.

Thank you for Donations!!

We want to thank everyone who participated in our annual donation drive. We want to especially thank the following knitters for making this happen: Frances Shelton, Sue Kreitzer, Catherine, Julie Milliron, and Abby.

Thanks to those involved, we sent 2 large boxes of warm hats, scarves, slippers and mittens to our American Veterans. We also sent 2 large boxes to the children and their families of the Dakota Native Americans in need in Chamberlain, SD.  This was many knitted toys to be distributed during the holidays as well as lots of warm clothing.
Our last 2 boxes contained mostly baby and new infant knit along with beautiful blankets that were knit and crocheted.  These were well received by Mary’s Center for abused moms and newborn infants in need in our capitol of Washington, DC.

We have received a beautiful letter from St Joseph’s School in SD thanking all of you for your kindness and hope.

I can just picture the children and the Veterans with their beautiful hand knit/crocheted gifts and the happy smiles on their faces.

Thank you all again!

Have a wonderful 2012!

Kim and Pat

Loom Extender Projects

RUGS, all kinds of rugs, they are so easy and quick to make with the loom extenders. This is a rug made by weaving FABRIC STRIPS using the 28″ Knitting Board and the 10″ loom extenders. 2 X 3.5

Fabric strips make great rugs and home decor. This rug was made with 4 woven sections. You simply start with 4 yards of jersey knit fabric in 2 colors, cut them into 1″ strips with the grain of the material. Then weave the strips across the loom, wrapping 2 pins at a time and with one peg empty in between. Use the same color of fabric  until you are ready for the stripe, then switch colors

If you use the 10″ Knitting Board, 10″ loom extenders you can make a rug by creating squares. This rug was made with 12 squares.

Look at the Donations received from Frances…….

Thank you for all those who have participated in our call for donations. We hope everyone will consider sending a hand knit/crochet item for this event.  We will be shipping to our American Veterans as well as Native Americans orphanages. We want to get this shipped out in time for the fall and winter season.

In reply to this request, we have received 3 large boxes of beautiful knit and crocheted items from Frances in Amelia, OH.  So, we want to say, “Thank you Frances!!” and “Wow”, what a great collection of beautiful hand knits.  The children and needy in North Dakota will be so happy this holiday season, and warm! There are so many beautiful pieces and such intricate stitches. These are just a few of the items we received from  Frances.

 

There is still time to send in items, our ship date is in October as it starts to get cold.   Send your donations to Authentic Knitting Board Co, 60 Carysbrook Rd, Fork Union, VA 23055.
