Or maybe a dishcloth? The pattern is here.

Check out Ravelry for a lot more turkey patterns.

Rainier Manor Meeting

Thanks you, Lisa, for offering the club room at Rainier Manor for our November meeting. And thank you for the coffee, tea, and cookies.

And, especially, thank you for inviting Millie from the Ben Franklin store in Bonney Lake. Millie showed us some new yarns and quick-knit patterns (has anyone noticed that the holidays are coming soon?). She also provided three knitting bags from Paton’s for a drawing. We hope to ask Millie to teach classes for the guild; fit and finishing were two popular topics.

The meeting was a great success, judging by attendance and the quality and quantity of the knitting displayed.
