This month we had Meredith from Springtime Farms as our speaker. She spoke to us about her alpacas and how she moved them cross country to Oregon and loves it here. Her animals are totally grass fed and she tries to find ways to use all of the fiber, even the parts not the best to knit with. She brought her yarn and her Snuggly Toes to sell us. I bought a few skeins of the dark brown and am going to try making my own felted snuggly toes.
October is here and with the longer dark evenings we start to pull out the heavier yarns and cuddle up on the couch and knit, knit, knit. But we should learn about how to keep our arms, hands and back in good shape while doing this so come to the October meeting to hear from Chiropractor Colleen McDonough. She was our speaker once before a few years ago and gave us wonderful information on how to stay healthy.
However, Colleen was just given notice she will have to be deposed for a lawsuit and it could be on the 12th. If so we will book her for early next year. Our meeting then would be to discuss what we want as a guild moving forward. So come prepared to discuss what you want to learn next year, and who you would like to have as speakers. Also have your show-n-tell and knitting with you. We will have knitting and sharing and just time together.
We will also have the drawing from those that contributed to our charity. Let’s see who wins Robbins awesome Purple Shawl!
