Beth Soper, our Vice President, led the February meeting.
We discussed our charity knitting projects. Members brought yarn to share for charity projects. The contact person for Wishard who had been collected knitted breasts has let us know that they don’t need any more (yay!) but they would really appreciate lap sized blankets and chemo caps. It was agreed that we could collect 9” squares for the lapghans, and chemo caps should be made with very soft yarn.
It was agreed that we would make a $200 donation to Epworth Church as a thank you for allowing us to hold our meetings there.
We discussed the Cat Bordhi workshops, which will be held from 9-4:30 on April 28th and 29th (Monday and Tuesday). We are aware that these are not ideal times for some members, but it was quite literally the only time that we could have Cat teach here at all, and we hope that many of you can attend. There was an email sent out earlier with the sock class choices, please vote for those this week if you are interested. The other class that was chosen was the 7 Super Skills Cowl, which was a clear winner in our initial poll.
Please look for specific details and registration information to come next week. Members will have time to sign up exclusively until a few days after the next guild meeting, and then we will open it up to non members.
Paula Winnig gave a book report on the Knitter’s Book of Yarn by Clara Parkes. She also brought the Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook to share.
Mary Ellen Lohr gave the main presentation on Mosaic Knitting. Barbara Walker’s excellent book is here. There is a good Knitty article on the subject if you missed it or would like more information. You can also find some mosaic knitting patterns on Ravelry.
