♥ ♥ February Meeting ♥ ♥

A lovely group of ladies 


Tracey and Kate bring so much fun to our guild with their bubbly personalities as they demonstrate the details of the make-n-take. What is it, you ask? A needle minder for your circular needles! It was a fun and fast project.


Finished project needle 
minder.
 Tracey's father, Tom, prepared the 
materials for the project  


Yes, we really did use the knife. It 
cut a slit into the top of the plastic tip.

 The hammer punch opens a hole in the top so the
needles would slide into the tube.

             The needle minder proves very useful.





     Great way to keep your needle from pulling out of your project. 
                  Thanks Tracey and Kate for the great idea.

January Meeting

January 2017!! The snow, freezing rain and monsoon did not keep the Black Sheep at home! We had a wonderful group of knitters.

I would like to introduce myself, Dorinda B, the new guild blogger along with Kathy S. I will be popping around the room at every meeting to get as many pictures as I can. So most likely, you will never see me in a post! Also let me know if there are things you would like to see included in the blog.




We celebrated the 10th Anniversary of the Black Sheep Guild, albeit a few months late. The cake was fabulous!


Kathy S did the ceremonial passing of the baton to Tracey, our new President! Well, they were actually size 50 needles. So appropriate.





SNEAKY SHEEP TIME!! 


Kim and Tanya had some wonderful ideas for the 2017 Sneaky Sheep. I have already signed up!
Please check your email for the info on all the details. Check out the tab at the top of the blog with all the sneaky sheep info.
