August 2011 Meeting

Summer has kept us busy and we have not been doing much meeting wise so it was wonderful to get back in the swing yesterday. We are trying out a more organized meeting with a sortof schedule.  It worked great, we got everything done we intended with plenty of social time, too!  We started with our setting up/eating lunch/social time, then came the library time.  Next was Show N Tell and we had lots of fun.  This was Jane's first time to attend a meeting, so she brought many lovely items to show.  Most were made on her Brother standard or her Passap E6000.

Reba sewed and smocked a stunning christening gown as a gift.

Note the embroidered child's info on the slip.

Alysha has perfected her stiffening on the gift baskets she knits.

Taught herself how to make knit radar patterns.

Experimenting with cotton men's ties.

Made some seam as you go shortie socks.

Jane drove all the way over from Missouri to give us a demo with her Brother 965i on knitting flat socks.  Boy, she sure can whip one up in a flash! 

Love that yarn she used :-)

We had a lovely meeting, hope you can join us some time!  Our next meeting is scheduled for September 24th.  Till next time Knit On!
