The November meeting was very busy, what with the election, brown bag swap and lots of show and share. Many of the flock were in attendance, along with four new members and three guests.
The candidates for Vice President, Merritt Collins and Kathy Stasys, gave an informative talk about themselves, and then voting ensued. The results will be announced at the December meeting.
As usual, Chris Hamel did a fine job with lots of really great raffle prizes. The prizes were donated by Kathleen Endlein, Katy Koelb, Erika Proschkow, Rita Perrone, and Kathy Rasmussen. And the winners were Joan Koelsch, Merritt Collins, Heather Perrone, Joan Brown, Tina Noel (guest), Pat Kreiling, and Dawn Jensen.
The big event of the night was the Mystery Trade/Brown Bag Swap. Thirty-five brown bags with mystery knit-related items, what could be more fun. Lots of surprises as bags were opened, coveted gifts were
stolen snatched - it was that kind of fun.

And to top off the evening, did we mention, there was CAKE.
An additional note: Black Sheep will be making the newspaper once again. Prior to the meeting, a newspaper photographer came to take pictures of the Black Sheep washcloth for an article by Jocelyn Brown in the Detroit News, on Friday the 21st. Keep an eye out for it.
