Happy Holidays!

Holiday celebrations continued at our December potluck-and-knitting meeting. And, welcome to new member Leona. You may know Leona as one of the “scone ladies” at the Washington State Fair; she also is an experienced knitter and crocheter.

All of the potluck dishes — such as salmon chowder, potato casserole, holiday breads, cakes, and other yummies — were delicious. Thank you!

Winner! Winner!

Two winners, actually — Jeannie and Lisa. Jeannie won second place in the Washington State Fair contest for fast knitting. She cast on 15 stitches and knit 31 stockinette rows, all in 15 minutes. She also won four ribbons for her fair entries. Congratulations, Jeannie!


Lisa won a best-in-category ribbon at the Pierce County Fair for her mitts. Yay, Lisa!

We also want to thank Joy and Cindy for giving us another stash dive today. All of the yarn will be used for wonderful knits for family, friends, and the community. Thank you!

We enjoyed some fabulous knitting today.
