Knitting Fun Days

Today some of the Knitting Goddesses had a knitting pool party and said goodbye to one of our members who is moving up to the Barrie area. I can already see a road trip in our future to check out the knitting stores in her new area! We had a great day knitting, visiting and sitting around the pool. Only one person did any real swimming but most of us sat around the pool with our feet in the water. The water was so warm I almost wish I had gone swimming; but you can't knit and swim at the same time. Thanks Liz for a wonderful day!

Last Sunday was our annual knitting day at Port Bruce. I think the HOT weather kept a lot of the knitters at home in the air conditioning but there was a nice breeze under the pavillion and it turned out to be a nice afternoon.

July Meeting

Last Wednesday night was the Knitting Goddesses July guild meeting.

This was one of the finished projects of the night. A feather and fan wrap knit out of hemp. BEAUTIFUL job Chris!!

The summer months at the guild are social knitting nights. We had a great night (in the air conditiong!!) chatting and showing off our current projects.

Carol won the yarn draw of the night and there was some really great yarn in there this month. Congratulations!

In upcoming guild news, we still have some fun activities planned for the summer before we get back into our regular monthly meetings.

Knitting get together at Liz's house July 24
Yarn Dyeing Sun, Aug 14 at Louise's
Road trip to Listowel Sat. Aug 20

Is there anyone who would like to be part of a planning committee for the guild? Please let me know if you would like to be part of this group or if you have any ideas for demos or guest speakers for the upcoming meetings. Amanda has offered her expertize and others input would be welcomed as well. The more ideas we can come up with the more informative and exciting our meetings will be! We have some really exciting things already in the works for the upcoming guild year from September - to August but I would love to have some input from the rest of the group as well.

The next meeting will be August 17.

Happy Knitting!

A Future Goddess

Our guild has started a tradition. When one of our members has a new baby we all take turns knitting a few rows on the baby gift.

This was our latest project. Elizabeth Zimmermann's baby sweater on two needles the February baby sweater. It was a fun, quick knit and I would recommend it if you haven't tried it. Here is our future knitter!
