more KIP!

If you check this out http://www.wwkipday.com/date_change.htm you'll see that
world-wide Knitting in Public is continuing through this week-end. In that spirit
some knitters are meeting at Shain Park, in Birmingham, at 1:00 this Saturday.
Here are directions: http://www.scleroderma.org/Chapter/michigan/directions_shainpark.htm

Look for us near a bench ~ be sure to bring your BSKG chairs!

Edited to add: if it's raining, we're welcome to go to the Oak Park Library....as long
as we don't create a big scene. :-)

I'd love to say something definite about world-wide Knit in Public day,
but I'm thinking it's going to be kind of up-in-the-air as to the final spot
for BSKGers. Around 1, in front of ...have you any wool? seems to be
where people are meeting. Just be sure to look for the BSKG lime green
chairs! And have fun.

A plethora of Black Sheep are celebrating birthdays in June. Hippo birdie 2 ewe: Amy McRae, Kelley Kencik, Linda Lutomski, Kelley Andersen, Mary Moylen, Andrea Lafferty,
and Sarah Turner.

did ewe know......
that Eileen Patra and Julie Miller are mother & daughter?

what was your first project & when?
Eileen: First one I remember was in college - I crocheted a soft sculpture of gigantic jingle bells
Julie: a black & pink Jiffy scarf. I think it's about 6 feet long

what was/is your favorite project?
Eileen: cabled socks
Julie: I'm making a crochet zombie army for my husband... it's sort of an ongoing project. I soon hope to have many tiny hordes around the house.

salty or sweet?
Eileen: sweet [used to be salty - love them both]
Julie: salty!

tell us something interesting about yourself
Eileen: I was in a TV commercial as a child. I advertised Twin Pines Milk on the Milky's Party Time show, extension phones on The Bell Telephone Hour, and cars for GM.
Julie: I own 9 pairs of Converse All Stars.

aside from knitting what are you passionate about?
Eileen: spiritual things & Youth Ministry - inspiring young people to
"know themselves".
Julie: writing is a big one. Though I'd been ignoring it for the last few years because college sort of sapped my attention for literature. The last few months have been really productive for me.
