December Black Sheep Guild Meeting

Kathy Stasys

Although our December meeting was moved from the 13th to the 6th, we had a great  turnout for the evening. Thank goodness as we missed the big snow storm and Arctic air that came the following week.

Much happened in our November guild elections thanks to so many willing to take on the various tasks involved in the BSKG. Here are the election and new volunteer results:

Vice-President: Kate P.

Membership Secretary: Harriet A

Treasurer: Diane D.

Sneaky Sheep: Tanya T. and Kim W.

Blog Mistress: Dorinda B.

Stitch and Pitch: Barb C. who will work with anyone else who is interested

Retreat: Kitty C., Linda D. Kelley G., Pat K., Rita P., Sarah T.

Monthly Knit Along: Noreen S.

Each of these women new to a position brings with her exciting ideas for the Guild's coming year. Congratulations and thank you!

During the December meeting, the BSKG addressed one of its primary goals: education to improve  knitting skills.

Tanya T., a Master Knitter and great teacher, demonstrated how to knit with two yarns in two hands. While at first it would seem to be a fumbling experiment for disaster, Tanya patiently led us through the steps to learning a new (for many) technique. She held up numerous hats as examples of implementing two/yarn, two/hand knitting, and she explained how to create different effects through different choices. Beautiful work!

We can anticipate some interesting Sneaky Sheep ideas when she and Kim launch the 2017 version  in January.

If any of you have gone to the The Yarn Stop in Clawson, you probably met Sam. He is going to be our guest speaker at the January meeting.

My Holiday gift to you is an article from The New York Times about knitting. We know what they say is true!


Happy Holidays and Happy Knitting!
