Inspiration

“I get so many ideas from what other people are knitting.”

That is a frequently heard remark at Puyallup Knitting Guild meetings. The May meeting provided lots of inspiration (click on photos for larger versions).



 

 


Karin and Chris have been working on their comfort dolls for children affected by AIDS. Members also contributed several hats for Mary Bridge Hospital’s Purple Hat Project.


We were thrilled to welcome founding member Patty for a visit.


Updates

► The guild potluck picnic will be Tuesday, August 16, at Pattie’s house, starting at 11 a.m. Details will follow in the newsletter. The picnic will take the place of the regular meeting on the second Tuesday.

► So far 16 people have signed up for the 2012 retreat, April 2-4, at Dumas Bay. The classroom can accommodate up to 20 people. If you are interested in attending, contact Sue L.
