Charity never Faileth

"Today over 25 CCS guild members got together to knit for charities. We had piles, bags and boxes of yarn from which to choose. We knit 7" squares, chemo hats and comfort dolls. Susan Hamarland brought red, white and blue yarn to knit squares that get their design from quilt squares. There was much food, fun and laughter all around. Most people stayed the duration from 11 am to 3 pm.
Today's event was so enjoyed by all that the guild plans to repeat it about once per quarter. There are people researching outdoor parks and alternate locations."

New Year, New Place

It's a new year and we are in our new digs. There lots of room to move around, in fact there are two rooms for our use. One for our meeting and one for our library/display. Our fist meeting of the year geared up for those new resolutions to go through our stash and reorganize. Ideas were shared on how to store needles and how to organize our yarn.

Lorna gave us our challenge for our February create something that is you. What would you knit to identify you? Me...probably something purple. I'd better get started.

We are also going to do a knit-along. One will be a knitted, then felted bunny and the other the "Clapotis" found both on and ravelry.

Look forward to seeing everyone in February.
