March Meeting

A lively flock of sheep were in attendance for the March meeting and there was one guest. 

Charli Osborne, events coorinator, announced two up-coming events happening this month.  Black Swamp Fiber Fair in Bowling Green Ohio and the other Fiber Expo in Ann Arbor.  Car pooling will be available for both events.  Hope to see a whole large flock of black sheep at both. 
Sign up for the Retreat, May 15 – 17, 2015, is in full swing.  You can still sign up at the April meeting. A weekend with fellow sheep in the north woods at the MacMullan Conference Center, what could be more fun than that. 

Of course, Chris Hamel, as always, did a good job herding the raffle with a  help from Linda Francisco. 

Donors were Donna Mrozek and Charli Osborne. The winners were:  Rita Perrone, Audrey Helou, Kathy Rasmussen,  Merritt Collins, Sheila Elliott, Ernestine  Bains, Heather Perrone, Mary Curran and Harriet Atlas.
Erica Owens did a trunk show, lots of fun stuff. Hats and cowls and other wonderful things. 

Not to mention a special hat called Saint Padraig, a pattern available on ravelry designed by non-other than Tanya Thomann, one of the founding members of our guild.  A collaboration between Tanya, Erica with help from Kate Pultz.   BSKG members truly rocks. 

Donna Mrozek did a slide show presentation, Ravelry  - Focus on Pictures and Kate Pultz helped with how to up load pictures on your stash. Kate also helped people load pictures of stash onto Ravelry.  Fun program!

Happy New Year!

Our first meeting of 2019 was very busy. We said goodbye and thank you to our former president, Kate, and introduced our new president, Merritt, along with our new Vice President, Barb.

Merritt welcomed our guests and then members shared any new finished projects. The skill level and talent in our guild is very impressive!

Order forms for new BSKG t-shirts were handed out. Remember to turn your order in by January 31.

We kicked off the Sneaky Sheep project. It’s a bit challenging but will be fun. Kim W. presented on how to design your own hat pattern. She had several great resources and handouts to help us get started. At our February meeting bring in your design to participate in the exchange.

The make-n-take was natural moth repellent sachets. We filled small muslin bags with rosemary, lavender and a bay leaf. The room smelled like a spa! Handouts were provided for anyone interested in knitting a bag for their sachet using the double knitting technique.


Sorry for the screaming, but it's 5 am and I've been up knitting for awhile. Joanie and the neighbors surely wouldn't appreciate the volume I've pent up, so you get to hear me rant.

I was unable to sleep well and woke up far earlier than my usual "I can't sleep early mornings"--I found out I have no brake lights when Joanie followed me home from the Coffee Beanery last night. I had big plans with a 6 year old this morning that are going to have to be rescheduled so I can resolve the safety issues, so I'm a bit upset. Wondering how a well planned day is going to be messed up can really screw with your sleep schedule, you know?

What does a knitter do when upset? KNIT!

I picked up my Pi shawl and began working on the edging, hoping to get it finished today. I was peacefully listening to some podcasts and making REALLY good progress. A few minutes ago, I picked it up and I could actually see the light at the end of the tunnel! I counted the stitches an…

Brown Bag Gift Exchange

At our December guild meeting we had a trunk show by a few of our new members. Thanks for sharing!

We also had a show and share of any projects knit from the last retreat swag.

The fun began when we had our annual Brown Bag Swap! Participants brought in a gift in a bag and got a chance to pick a bag or steal a bag when their number was called. The items that got the most "oohs" and "aahs" were of course also the ones that got stolen the most. There were cute lambs, lovely yarn, stitch markers, and a lot of other goodies!

Julia delivered the pies that were ordered from Achatz. Thanks, Julia!
