April Meeting - SS3.4

What a great meeting we had! Our annual sneaky sheep exchange brought out the creativity in our members. Hats, scarves, shawls & cowls, slippers, socks, even a pair of legwarmers, mitts & mittens, jewelry and a gardening apron were all among the many gorgeous items. Check out the photos on the right hand side of the blog!
Judith presented this year's charity knitting - we will be making hats and mittens for Headstart children.




Our VP Kelley presented the Tip of the Month, how to SSK without the SS. I've been using it - what a time saver.
The KAL for the month - the Liesl sweater - three people wore their creations!

April 12 BSKG meeting

Doors open at 7:00 pm for sign in and raffle ticket sales.
It's almost time for the S3.4! Hopefully everyone has their project well in hand. It will be exciting to see what everyone has created for their sneaky sheep. Along with the sneaky sheep exchange, Judith will have the charity kick-off for this year. That will give everyone the summer to do their charity knitting. The annual retreat is coming up, and there are still spots left. We always have a great time, it is a chance to get to know fellow knitters better, knit, relax, and just enjoy the weekend. We will have a classes, chair massages and henna tattoos. Please consider coming if you can!
Please see the attachment for information regarding programs held by the Needlework and Textile Guild of Michigan (NTGM). Kate Pultz is our contact with that guild, and there are some interesting programs coming up. NTGM has invited our members to attend their meetings.

See you Tuesday.
