      ***Silver Tea and Knit Show***

      Saturday, February 2 1:30-3:30pm

      This year's theme: ~Emerald City~

      Featuring a Trunk Show of knit garments from Brown Sheep Yarns

      You are invited to our annual Knitting Tea! You are welcome to bring something for show-and-tell that fits with the theme. It can be something made recently or something from the past. Have fun and get creative with the theme idea! Use emerald green as a color or make something related to Emerald City from books and movies.



      Brother and KnitKing knitting machine carriages have an option for KCI or KCII. This feature is for end needle selection. When doing a lace or tuck pattern (our Versatility Tuck Circle Scarf, for example) if the pattern selection isn't working correctly double check this setting. It may need to be on KCII instead of KCI.

      If the wrong KC setting is used, the machine may become confused about where to start selecting needles for the pattern.

      Read the section of the manual that describes KCII

      *Note* machines from the 1970's or before will not have a KCII option to prevent end needle selection.
