Charity Scarves

Previously the guild has donated 39 scarves to the South Oakland Shelter. I currently have 75 scarves that the guild has knitted, and again we will be donating all scarves to the SOS. Bringing us to a grand total of 114 scarves that have been donated this year. With the weather changing I along with our guild can only assume that they will be gratefully appreciated. This will be an on going charity throughout the year. Thank you to all the generous knitters and keep knitting!!!

Talked to a man who is into SOS, and he said men grab hats faster then scarfs. So lets knit hats and men type scarfs. The ones in the picture are wonderful. Good for us.

Happy New Year!

Our first meeting of 2019 was very busy. We said goodbye and thank you to our former president, Kate, and introduced our new president, Merritt, along with our new Vice President, Barb.

Merritt welcomed our guests and then members shared any new finished projects. The skill level and talent in our guild is very impressive!

Order forms for new BSKG t-shirts were handed out. Remember to turn your order in by January 31.

We kicked off the Sneaky Sheep project. It’s a bit challenging but will be fun. Kim W. presented on how to design your own hat pattern. She had several great resources and handouts to help us get started. At our February meeting bring in your design to participate in the exchange.

The make-n-take was natural moth repellent sachets. We filled small muslin bags with rosemary, lavender and a bay leaf. The room smelled like a spa! Handouts were provided for anyone interested in knitting a bag for their sachet using the double knitting technique.


Sorry for the screaming, but it's 5 am and I've been up knitting for awhile. Joanie and the neighbors surely wouldn't appreciate the volume I've pent up, so you get to hear me rant.

I was unable to sleep well and woke up far earlier than my usual "I can't sleep early mornings"--I found out I have no brake lights when Joanie followed me home from the Coffee Beanery last night. I had big plans with a 6 year old this morning that are going to have to be rescheduled so I can resolve the safety issues, so I'm a bit upset. Wondering how a well planned day is going to be messed up can really screw with your sleep schedule, you know?

What does a knitter do when upset? KNIT!

I picked up my Pi shawl and began working on the edging, hoping to get it finished today. I was peacefully listening to some podcasts and making REALLY good progress. A few minutes ago, I picked it up and I could actually see the light at the end of the tunnel! I counted the stitches an…

Brown Bag Gift Exchange

At our December guild meeting we had a trunk show by a few of our new members. Thanks for sharing!

We also had a show and share of any projects knit from the last retreat swag.

The fun began when we had our annual Brown Bag Swap! Participants brought in a gift in a bag and got a chance to pick a bag or steal a bag when their number was called. The items that got the most "oohs" and "aahs" were of course also the ones that got stolen the most. There were cute lambs, lovely yarn, stitch markers, and a lot of other goodies!

Julia delivered the pies that were ordered from Achatz. Thanks, Julia!
