Our year is off to a busy start. We held a class called “Advanced Ravelry.” This fiber arts website is a helpful tool for getting ideas about what to knit, sharing photos of things one had made, keeping track of books, yarn and other tools, and being able to post information to share with others in the knitting community. Linda Hood was our teacher and she did a fine job.
We also had a class taught by our new co-president, Barb Kervin. Barb owned a yarn shop in her previous life, so she is a fabulous resource for us. She started the ladies on a “knit-a-long” shawl class, showing a new, smoother way to start an angled shawl. Demand was high for this class!
The SaddleBrooke Activities Fair was held on January 27 and the Knit-Wits had a table and spoke with prospective members. If you used to knit or crochet a long time ago, someone can help you get back on track! We knit for ourselves, some charities, and we can learn as many new techniques as we like. We learn from each other. This is a friendly group of ladies (guys are welcome; we are waiting to sign up our first male member!). Our meetings happen each Wednesday morning from 9:00-11:00 a.m., in the SaddleBrooke One Arts and Crafts Center, Room No. 4. You are welcome to stop in and see what we’re up to.
