September Meeting

Tonight was our first official meeting of the new Knitting year. 

 As usual the show and tell part of the evening was amazing and we saw finished projects and projects still in the works.


Plans were made for future meetings.  October - bead knitting, November  - learn to spin on a drop spindle, December - Christmas party, January - knit doilies, February - entrelac.

The topic of this month's meeting was learning how to knit backwards.  We had lots of fun with this knit little decorations for Halloween.

We also started making plans for a road trip to the Woodstock Fleece Festival in October.

Carol showed us this great idea of how to keep your yarn clean while you are knitting with it.  I thought it was the bottom of a sleeve but I think she said it was the bottom of a girls legging.  Either way it is a creative idea!
