Lots of Beautiful Knitting

Knitters displayed lots of beautiful and fun projects at the November meeting.

Jane is making progress on her sweater.

Joan D.'s entrelac felted bags are too cute.

Naomi modeled Sue V.'s screaming pink Haruni shawl.

Karin designed her hot knee socks.

Joanne is making a hat.

The group enjoyed a lot of socializing and sharing...

...while we watched it rain and rain and rain.

December holiday meeting: Tuesday, December 14, same time, same place. Potluck! Joanne will provide coffee and tea; Deanne will provide plates, napkins and utensils. Bring a dish to share, your coffee or tea cup and your knitting.

Also, if you want to, bring an unwrapped toy. Sue L. will make sure they are are donated to an appropriate agency for distribution during the holidays. We decided to donate toys instead of having a gift exchange.

More information on the holiday meeting will be posted later.
