Special Events


Lucy and I have been on the road these last couple weeks working on upcoming Special Events!!

First, we have confirmed out Fall Knit Away Weekend at the Landmark Resort in Egg Harbor for November 9-11, 2012.  We have also have the option of adding an additional night, Thursday, to the event, as requested.  Arrangements have been made for the massage therapist to have her own room for ease of client change.  New this year is a Nail Artist to do manicures!!  Whoo hoo!  Please put these dates on your calendar.  Details will be forthcoming, stay tuned!

Secondly, we are working on a Milwaukee Shop Hop!  We have already received prizes for the event.  Set your calendars for Saturday, April 28, 2012.  Details will be in the April newsletter and sign up at the April 12 meeting.

More fun and exciting events are on the way!

Alert! April Program Change!

We will now be having a lesson on short rows taught by Pat Hickey.

Here's how to prepare for the program: using size 7 or 8 needles (appropriate for yarn size) and worsted yarn, cast on 40 stitches and knit in stockinette stitch (knit one row, purl the next) for about 2 inches. Bring to meeting on the needles.

The transition from heel flap to foot bottom involves short rows.

A note about the May program--our Spring Pot Luck will be hosted again this year by Victoria and Andy Jicha, hopefully without the rain. The Jicha's are providing the burgers and buns. The rest of the Gmembers are to bring a salad or dessert to pass.

Information will be available at the April meeting and in the newsletters.

Some of them are over but there are plenty more on the list for future road trips.

Thanks, Julie!
