January Meeting Notes

The January meeting was great! It was my last meeting as president. I handed over the reins to Kelley and Charli. I’ve enjoyed my year, it has been busy and I hope productive. Thanks to all those in the guild for helping me get through the year. And thanks for the flowers, it was unexpected, and they are beautiful!

Here are some links to the techniques that were demonstrated yesterday. I plan on using the Channel Island cast on for my next pair of top down socks.

Everyone should have received an invitation from Elfster to participate in the Sneaky Sheep v. 5 gift exchange. Please reply by January 30, as that is the date when the exchange closes and the names are drawn. If for some reason you did not get the link, let us know.

We also mentioned the Sandhill Crane Wine and Wool Festival on January 28. Here is some additional information:

"Winter Wine & Wool Festival
Saturday, January 28, 11-6
Our summer Wine & Wool Festival was such a success that we're planning an indoor one this winter. Just when the world looks completely bleak outdoors and everyone has a little cabin fever, the winery will be filled with colorful yarn, fiber, knitted items, and knitting supplies.
Mark your 2012 calendar now for this fun event. Free admission."

Don’t forget Knit Michigan, Saturday February 4.
