Next Meeting

September is just around the corner and that means that our official guild meetings are starting up again!

Our September meeting is Wednesday, Sept 19 in Springfield at the Malahide Community Place from 7-9pm. We are going to kick off our Charity Knitting Challenge with a pattern swap for scarves/neckwarmer/cowls. So start looking for a favourite pattern or one that just looks like it would be fun to knit to share with the group.

Knit In Public Day

We had a great Knit In Public Day today!

Our table was full of hand knit items, a variety of different fibres for people to feel and to guess which one was which, scarves on needles for people to give knitting a try, yarn and instructions to knit a flower, all the supplies needed for making pom poms and a jar filled with tiny leftover balls of yarn for people to guess how many balls there were.

We had a great turn out of Knitters join us at the booth. I couldn't manage to get a picture with everyone all at once but here are some of us!

We had lots of kids stop by to try knitting with needles and to make pom poms.

We had a great day and had lots of interested in the guild meetings.

Knitting Goddesses Night Out

The Knitting Goddesses had a knitting night out with the Yarn Harlot. What a great night!

We went out for dinner before heading to the yarn shop that was hosting the book signing for the evening with the Yarn Harlot.

Most of us had knit the Yarn Harlot's hat pattern An Unoriginal Hat and were wearing it that night.

We knit while we waited to hear her speak.

We knit while she gave her talk

And then we shopped for yarn and her new book which some of us got signed.

It was a great knitting night out!
