April Meeting

We had a great time last night at our April meeting and we had a new member - Karen F. and a visitor - Michelle A.

Our raffle contributors were Marie W., Linda M., Kathy S., Sally P. and Harriet A.
The winners were as follows:

Hope R.       Book - Shadow Knitting
Tanya T.       Pendleton grey flannel zippered double point needle holder
Pat K.          Book - Cutest Ever, Baby Knits, and 2 skeins of Knit Pick DE swish
Kate M.       Book - Knitting Vintage Socks and 2 skeins of Steinbach Wolle sock yarn
Heather P.  Book - It Itches and 3 skeins Berroco Comfort worsted wt. yarn
Charli O.     Cascade Yarns pattern for reversible eyelet cable scarf and Cascade Heritage Silk yarn
Merritt C.   Book - Exquisite Little Knits and pattern and ladder yarn for scarf
Ann R.       Book - Knit Socks and 3 skeins of Fortissima sock yarn

Merritt C. gave a wonderful trunk show of many of her knit projects.  Here are some pictures that will give you just a small idea of what she does.

If you missed this meeting and are interested to learn more about Merritt's projects or how she knits them, make sure you come to our next meeting.  Merritt will be more than happy to talk with you at that time.

Speaking of our next meeting, it will be the last of the season and we will be having a member swap and sale and desserts.  Member swap and sale means just that.  Bring yarn, books, notions, etc. that you don't want any more.  Put a price on your items if you want to sell them or swap with another person for something they brought.  

Our retreat will take place on May 2-4 and our last meeting is May 13.  We still have openings  if you decide you'd like to join us at the retreat.   The weather is definitely on the upswing and our incredible door prizes are arriving daily!  So think about it.  Any questions, feel free to contact Donna M. or Harriet A.

See you either at Panera, the retreat or the May meeting.  Knit on, fellow Black Sheep!

March BSKG Field Trips

Fiber Expo in Ann Arbor, while not as large as the fall show, still there was a fine selection of vendor with lots of fiber and lovely yarn.  Needless to say there was a bit of stash enhancement.

The following Saturday, it was off to Bowling Green for the Black Swamp Spinners Guild Market Day & Fiber Fair.  An annual spring BSKG field trip, with many of the guild’s favorite vendors.  So worth the drive. There was a lot of stash enhancement to say the least.

Fun times with fiber goodness,  hope to see you on the next fiber excursion.
