In "Wish I Was There" Department News...

I read Rose-Kim Knits for her weekly feature "Thursdays are for What the Hell is This?"  (I don't know how she finds this stuff.)  (She's either the owner, part-owner, or an employee of the Fiber Gallery in Seattle.  Whatever, she's a champion knitter and blogger.)  I know it's too late for you dedicated yarn crawlers/shop hoppers for 2012, but maybe you can plan a trip next year.  There are 21 shops on the tour (21!!!) and over $1500 in prizes at stake.  Man, if I wasn't on a severe yarn diet and had a spare plane ticket and no job, I'd so be there.

Picnic a Great Success

About 25 Bay Lakes Knitting Guild members congregated May 10th for the annual end-of-year picnic, and a great time was had by all. The food was all amazing, and the chance to just chat and mingle was particularly fun. As you can see, the group celebrated another great year with a special cake.

Summer Knitting

Monthly meetings will continue over the summer but without programs. We will meet at the First United Methodist Church (FUMC) at 7 pm on the second Thursday of each month –  June 14, July 12, and August 9. If the weather is nice we will go across the street to the park to knit so bring a lawn chair and a beverage along with your knitting. Regular programming will resume at the September 13th meeting.
