We talked about our group on Ravelry – Have you all gotten your account set up and found the Millstream Knitting group? If you need help Teresa will help you at one of the meetings to get started and learn to navigate the site. Thank you Teresa!!!
Our own Joan Parker runs Barnhart Farms with her daughter – she spoke to us about the farm she has started up and operated for the past five years. We got to hear about the process of turning her alpaca’s fluff to awesome yarn. She had samples of the raw fiber and some items made from the finished product. We also had the opportunity to purchase the yarn. I need to look for a great pattern for knitting mine up. She also has 2 Pygora goats and a Lama. We got to see pictures of all her “yarn to be” creatures.
Cindy and Gloria (who are sisters), joined our group this month – Yea!!!
At our April meeting we will have Sivia Harding teaching us about knitting a Mobius – a circle with a half twist knitted in the round without having to sew it together that way at the end. You can check out her web site at www.siviaharding.com She has some really great patterns and will have them for sale at our meeting. Hope to see you there.
