Alright folks the plans are ready for May 29th Wooly Wonders meeting.

1. The summer sweater is ready to go. On the 29th we will make a stitch sampler of the 5 or so stitches and cables used in the sweater. Bring size 6, 29″ circular needles, size 8, 29″ circular needles, scissors, stitch markers.
Bring $5 for the Sampler; pattern and yarn kit.

2. A sample of the belt that we are going to knit in June is ready to share on May 29th.
Guess the answer to one question and one person will win a new free book published by Interweave.

3. Ever go to a yarn store and fall completely and madly in love with the color or yumminess factor of a yarn? You decide it is a must have fiber. It’s in the store your in the store the consternation begins. Maybe you decide you want to buy enough to make a sweater. Then you think “How many skeins do I buy?” If I buy to many skeins then I’ve wasted cash that can be spent on other yarn or life needs. Not enough and a sweater becomes a vest. Your in luck, I have 10 copies of “The Knitter’s Handy Guide to Yarn Requirements”. Caption on the bottom of this nifty tool states: “Yarn yardage requirements; for basic mittens, gloves, scarves, socks, hats, vests, and sweaters at multiple sizes and gauges’. “They are on sale for $5.00.
