May Picnic Fun & More Fun to Come

The picnic was great.  We had perfect weather to sit outside.  The food was delicious.  The talk was flowing.  The friendships were evident.


The Design-A-Thon awards were presented with much cheering and applause.  In the Professional category, Vicki won first place for her Alpaca Sweater.  Zoe took second place for her Fair Isle Cable Mittens.  In the Non Professional (or as I like to refer to it, Recreational) category, Beth won first place for her Funky Purse, and Andy won second for the Wire Shawl Pin.  The winners even received ribbons to remind them of all the work they put into their winning entries.

A huge THANK YOU to Interlacement Yarns and Spin for the wonderful donations of yarn, patterns and needles.  And a special thank you to our guild for the donation of the Signature Needles gift cards.

Thank you all for making both the picnic and the Design-A-Thon a success!  The guild members voted to have this become an annual event, so start planning your entry for next year NOW.

June Program
June begins our summertime knitting in the park.  We meet in St. James Park across the street, just south of our regular meeting place.  In case of rain we will meet at our usual place in the Zeimer Building.

Bring a chair, something to drink, and your knitting and join us for the BLKG Knit in Public Day.
If you want to take part in the Knitting With Wire July program, I need to know so that we are assured of having enough kits.  We did a hand count at the picnic, but I think we need to get names.  The kit will include wire and beads (if you have a special color lot in mind, you may want to supply your own beads).

Please email me your name (with BLKG in the subject line) and I will have a kit for you at the July meeting.  eastconsingirl @ gmail . com (without the spaces, of course!).
