April Showers. . .and Guild Meetings. . .

The April meeting will be held at the Fifth Third Bank THIS Tuesday at 7pm. No special supplies needed, but since we've had so much to do for the past few months, we thought a serious show and tell was needed. Bring your Lenten finished objects, a project you've been working on or something you're having trouble with. . .and show off! Ann W from Knitting Room will be giving a presentation on the history of knitting. We'll also be collecting for the May dinner/swap and sale. Dinner will be provided by the Coffee Beanery and will be around $10--we'll have the exact amount on Tuesday.

If you're headed on the retreat with us, we'll have some last minute details just for you. April has been a month where the BSKG has been showered with gifts. . .Kate has been hard at work getting goodies to make the retreat the best yet! (I know, we've only had one other, but still. It's the thought!) Check out the side bar to see who has generously sponsored our retreat so far. . .the list will be updated as more things arrive!

Speaking of being showered with gifts--
Kim won a gift while she was knitting at Beaumont this weekend! How nice when kindness is returned with kindness!

Judith is famous!
She also had her kindness rewarded this week! Her selfless giving was noticed, and rewarded. Read about it here and here (make sure you read the comments). . .and you can help her select a gift here! (I'm pushing her toward the circular needle cases. . .you may want to purchase one for yourself!)

See you Tuesday!

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!
