March Evening Guild Meeting

As always, we had a lot of fun at our Thursday evening meeting, this time fumbling with yarn, knitting needles, double ended needles, and more. Mary W. was such a great presenter and teacher for the Scandinavian knitting technique Tvaandsstickning. She brought lots of samples to show us. The technique allows the wearer of the item to protected from any wind coming through the knitted piece. Great for cold windy winters like we have here in Colorado. The knitting uses a "Z" twist yarn and several double ended knitting needles.

There were 11 members in attendance at the meeting.

Next month is our exciting and much anticipated "Yarn Swap and Sale". Bring your thrums, unused yarns, ones you have spun, dyed, or make yourself. Also, bring any tools, books, supplies, or equipment you want to sell or share. We will meet back at the Center for Independence, 740 Gunnison, Grand Junction. Enter the gym through the East side door of the parking lot. Starts at 6PM and runs till 8PM. Please call Margaret if you have any questions. 773-1916

Rumor has it that there might be a rug show organized for the event.
