Darned Snowstorm

Last Thursday's BLKG meeting was cancelled due to a snowstorm.  I was disappointed, I'm sure you were too, but it was really slick out there.  Better safe than sorry.
New President Julie sent us all this email about it and set a new knitting challenge for February, so I thought I'd blog it just in case someone missed it.  Read on for details.
"Our cancellation of the January meeting was unfortunate.  Mother Nature always wins!  Had the meeting gone on as scheduled, Marsha and I would have had treated you to this fabulous decorated cookie.  Unfortunately a very successful deer hunt leaves me very little freezer space.  We will reschedule our treat night to an open one and I’m sure it will be fabulous also.
Looking ahead, our February meeting is close to Valentine's Day.  Keeping with a theme, I invite you to “Knit Red”.  Anything red!  Maybe a charity hat, a fuzzy pair of slippers, get started on your December dish cloth, or perhaps knit a swatch with a new stitch pattern for the Design-a-thon.    BKLG members do not have idle needles!
We moved the January “thrumming” program to February.  I am looking forward to a very interesting “Mitten” show and tell, and “Knit Red” show and tell, along with your regularly knitted items.
Board meeting starts at 5:30, 6:30 Member Meeting and Knit Doctor.   Design-a-thon registration will be due, and $15 Membership dues are due by March 31st.
See you in February.
Julie LeFevre"
The suggestion to swatch a stitch pattern for our Design-a-Thon entry in red yarn for the February meeting is brilliant.  I'm excited to see what else Julie has in store for us.
(You don't think Julie and Marsha sat down with that giant cookie, a gallon of milk, a "chick flick" or three, and polished it off, do you?  Nah, they wouldn't do that.)
