December Meeting

posted by Kathy Stasys

At this month's meeting, Diane D.  announced that the Black Sheep Knitting Guild now has 89 official members. Another good reason to celebrate this holiday season!

Pat K. and Shirley W. donated the beautiful yarns for this month's raffle. Thanks, ladies.

We are still in need of a chair for the Events and Field Trip Committee, so please consider actively involving yourself in the guild. The swag will be available at the January meeting so please have your money ready to pay for the bags that you have ordered. The number of sheepies purchasing swag this year set another record. Sign up for 2016's SS8 will be at the January meeting.

Donna M. explained the process for the Sneaky Sheep. Anyone who wishes to participate will be secretly matched with another member through the online Elfster site. Linda F. suggested the theme of "Spring Into Summer".  Consider knitting items meant for spring or summer wear, or items for the home that are made of cottons, etc.

Guild members elected Tracy K. as our new vice-presidenet in a close vote. Congratulations Tracy!

Tanya T. presented an excellent insight into how the judges evaluate work for the Master Knitting program. (She completed it at the same time that she finished her Masters in Education.) Members who knit two swatches learned how to evaluate their own work as the judges would do for Master Knitting. While knitting the swatches seemed a simple task, Tanya's information taught how important even the basics are for a knitter.

Next month's meeting is January 12th. Happy Holidays!!
