World Wide Knit in Public Day

Hello Sheepies! World Wide Knit in Public Day is fast approaching and we’d like for as many of you as possible to meet with us for some public knitting to celebrate.

We’ve decided on 12 Oaks Mall on June 8th at 1:00 p.m.

We’re going to sit in the area on the main floor by J.Jill and Kay Jewelers. That is right in the center of the mall - it’s likely easiest to enter from JCPenney’s, but Macy’s and Sears are also relatively close (Nordstrom and Lord and Taylor are a bit further). In case you’re unsure check the mall map.

Let us know if you’re going to be joining us!

RETREAT

Well, the 2013 retreat at the Ralph A. MacMullan Conference Center at Higgins Lake is officially over!  We had 40 Black Sheep attend, which is the highest number so far.  The weather was a bit wonky, but no one seemed to mind.  We knit, ate, drank, had massages, got henna tattoos, walked around, and, did I say, we knit!!!  A couple of Black Sheep even went kayaking on Higgins Lake early Saturday morning.

Here are just a few pictures of Black Sheep having fun.








 


We had a beautiful display of items making up our door prizes.  Here are just a few pictures.





Saturday we had a class on color pooling with Lynn Hershberger.  Lynn taught the same class at the Sock Summit.  It was a very interesting class and a great learning experience.  Thank you Lynn!

Thanks to all who helped in making this retreat the success it was.  And thank you to all who attended.  We love ya and hope to see you next year.  And, to those who couldn't make it this year, we hope you will be able to do so next year.  Just ask your friend and fellow Black Sheep who went how great a time we all had.

Last meeting til fall.

Last meeting of the year was held  on 5/13 and lots of fun was had by all.

We had fruit and cake.  Cake was so beautiful, sheep were taking pictures of it.


Tables were filled with items for sale/swap. Great deals and fun, fun, fun.


Judith brought lovely yarn susans to sell.  Note the stuffed animals to the right which were brought in for our charity project.  Not due til October, but knitters are having fun already making cute animals!  Keep it up.  The elephant wasn't even a pattern given out, but used by one of our sheep.  Isn't it great?  Feel free to substitute your own pattern if you like.




More tables filled with items to sell/swap.


Enjoyed several "show and share" projects.  Our Black Sheep are SOOO creative.

Next meeting will be September 9.  Hope everybody has a wonderful summer.  See you in September.  Unless you come by Panera to knit on a Tuesday night.  If so, I'll see you there.  Come join us everyone!
