November 14: It's the Little Things That Count

On Sunday, November 14 Mary Ellen will lead a conversation on knitting projects from small amounts of yarn. Since conversations involve more than one, we are asking that you bring in projects for a Show and Tell of the items you have completed from your small amounts of yarn:) We hope you will be willing to share the fiber type, amount, and pattern source. Because you know knitters love to copy, er..., I mean be inspired by others.

This is also the month to bring in your alpaca samples. For those of you who have missed the last two meetings, Doreen provided those interested in 1 ounce bags of alpaca fiber. Each member was asked to prep the fleece and bring in their results. We hope you had fun and we can't wait to see your results. And I bet if you ask nicely, Doreen has a bit more hanging about if you want to join the party a bit late.

Liz will lead next week's meeting; she will be asking for your input on a few items...
Bonnie has been working on obtaining a big name for a summer workshop and we need your input. We need a solid commitment from the group so that Bonnie can continue her talks with the instructor.

The Nominating Committee (Doreen and Peter) will be presenting the names for the offices up for election. If you are interested in running for office, this is the time to put your name on the table.

We are looking for FLAX spinners for the January Roc Day meeting; please contact any officer if you are willing to demo:)

And last, but not least: There will be NO COFFEE at this month's meeting. Please provide your own beverage.
