Full House for June

Nineteen people! That is how many knitters participated in the June meeting. We had many long-time members and some newer members. Hooray! There is always room for more, so invite your crafty friends.

Just a few of the beautiful knitting projects that was on show:

Carlaʼs Guernsey Wrap (a fun pattern that
has been popular among PKG members)
Chrisʼs handsome Timeʼs a Thief Scarf
Jeanʼs purple baby hats
Karenʼs afghan
Karinʼs sweater (Karin is a big fan of Rowan yarns)
Lorraineʼs Knit Night Hat (and isnʼt that an
interesting and pretty brim treatment!)
Pamʼs block pattern blanket
Jeannieʼs hats
Jeannie is almost done with her hat project. Jeannie vowed to knit 65 hats for homeless people to honor her upcoming birthday. She has already finished 60 of the 65. Congratulations, Jeannie! And happy birthday!
