Before the festivities we had an election of new officers. Victoria Jicha is our new President, Mitch Woesner is Vice President, Jenny Lee is Secretary, and Linda Busalacchi retains the Treasurer's job. Terri Sipes is taking over Newsletter duties, Barbara Malcolm (yours truly) stays Member-at-Large and takes care of the Blog, Zoe Moulton remains Membership chair, and Lucy Yap is Events coordinator. Congratulations and a big Thank You to all!
(The rest of the Guild members need to decide what role they can play in the running of the Guild next year. It's not a very difficult or demanding job when we all do our part. Think of it this way, there are four officers and four committee chairs, if you each took a turn you'd only be in office once every seven years. Get your turn over early! I am. [sorry for the lack of subtlety, I hope I haven't offended anyone])
Everyone also brought either a salad or dessert to share. There were lots of goodies to be had. Thanks for all the treats to eat, Knitters!
Just a reminder: there are always a couple of Knit Doctors there before the meeting to help you over any hurdles you might encounter in your projects. They really know their stuff.

I am excited to announce that the Knit & Stitch outreach with the Bellevue Retirement Community (Hofmann Rd and GV) has been scheduled to begin in January and run through May. We agreed to set up those 5 months and evaluate how things are going in April. At that time we will decide whether to continue with the present schedule or tweak it to better meet the needs of the residents there. Both groups will meet in their Community Room.
The Day Group will meet on the 2nd Wednesday of every month from 3pm to 4pm.
The Evening Group will meet on the 4th Wednesday of every month from 6pm to 7pm.
Those dates are as follows:
Days - January 11, February 8, March 14, April 11, and May 9
Evenings - January 25, February 22, March 28, April 25, and May 23.
I would like to have a sign-up sheet for these 5 months, so we know we have all of the
dates covered. If you wish to participate, please email me with the dates that you wish
Victoria Jicha, President

The members, relatives, and friends of the Bay Lakes Knitting Guild were out in force last Sunday celebrating World Wide Knit in Public Day. For the second year we met in beautiful Jackson Square Park in downtown Green Bay bringing our knitting and snacks. There were knitters of all ages and experience levels working on an amazing variety of projects. It was great fun. You should have come. Perhaps you'll come next year? We'll be there. Will you?

WW Hummus (serves 4)
Each serving = 1/2 protein, 15 optional calories
First, I always double the recipe so I use the whole can of chickpeas,
** sometimes I add 1/2 cup of mixed olive salad (from Curt's Oilerie in Fish Creek) with most of the added olive oil drained off, for Olive Hummus which adds about 30 calories per serving.

Two Little Sheep went to the Door County Shepherd’s Market
Sheep are naturally water repellant and even the dense fog could not dampen the spirits as Terri Sipes and Laura Quinn traveled to Door County to take in Northeast Wisconsin's oldest fiber event and sale, The 2011 Door County Shepherd's Market.
Sponsored by The Door County Sheep and Goat Raisers and hosted by Whitefish Bay Farm, the market promotes products from their members' sheep, goats, and camelids, and educated the public about their animals, the fibers they produce, and the traditional handcrafts that utilize these fibers.
More than a dozen vendors offered a wide selection of fibers, yarns, and finished fiber products. Numerous demonstrations and related products could also be viewed. Since you missed this year's market, mark your calendar for next year--it's a "must see."
The Door County Shepherd’s Market is always held in May on the weekend before Memorial Day Weekend. Whitefish Bay Farm devotes an entire barn to the event--vendors sell the wares on the first floor, and the upper floor is devoted to finished goods by local fiber artists.
