Wooly Wonders Meeting April 30, 2011

 The meeting was held at the home of Nicky Philips and was attended by 8 members.  Jessie Stitt joined our group as a new member.

 A treasurers report was given.  Checks to be used at the two local fairs will be written in June.

 We now have the entire Knitting Daily TV series on DVD’s.  These DVD’s can be borrowed by members for one month.  The DVD’s that were purchased directly from Interweave Press came with PDF files of the patterns used in the episodes.  We still need the patterns for series 200 and 300.

 For our program in April we viewed some of the patterns.

 Tina spoke about her experiences at Knitters Fantasy including her classes on Tatting and Finishing.

 Kathy described making the EZ Baby Surprise Jacket and how tricky it was.  It was suggested that making the jacket would be a good learning experience for our group and possibly could be done as a group project.

 Sharon mentioned that Knitters Review Forum will be having a Knitters Retreat in NY State this November.  She will look into the details.

 Nicky has attended the Women in the Outdoors program in the past and they did a class on the many ways to spin.  She will find out if this is offered again in the future.

 Sharon showed us an example of the Sock Worksheet she makes when she does a project which includes details about the yarn and needles used so that she can recreate that sock if needed.

 Many wonderful projects were show in show and tell, such as Jessie’s stranded  fingerless mittens,Sharon’s Frosted Ferns shawl, and Nicky’s knitted doily.

Tina will bring refreshments to the May meeting.

 The next meeting will be May 28th at the home of Suzanne inFranklin.  The Program on making a Picot Edge will be presented by Bridgett.  Please bring yarn and appropriate sized needles and crochet hook.  DK or sock weight yarn is suggested, but any yarn will do.
