June Knitting

Once again, knitters at the June meeting drew ooooohs and aaaaaaahs for their beautiful knitting.

Angela's baby sweater
Barbara's multi-directional scarf
Jeannie's stash-busting scarves for charity
Joan's fabulous Fair Isle vest
Karin's summer sweater
Anne's gift sheep
And in the business meeting:
  • Pattie has graciously invited us to her house again for our annual potluck. The lunch will be on the regular August meeting day, Tuesday, August 14, at 11:30 a.m. Details coming soon.
  • Be sure knitting is represented at the Pierce County and Western Washington fairs. See the Upcoming Events box for details.
  • Members indicated an interest in knitting chemo caps to donate. Jeannie distributed information about desirable chemo cap yarns and fabrics, plus sites where you can find patterns. We will find an organization to distribute the caps to men and women undergoing chemotherapy.
  • Although not enough people signed up for the April 2013 retreat at Dumas Bay, some members still want to do a knitting retreat somewhere, perhaps a hotel or rented house. Put on your (knitted) thinking caps for a possible location.
