Several fun patterns have found their way into our meetings. Barb K. showed the ladies her reversible, two-color knitted bag, and a handful of members (actually twelve) could not resist doing it for themselves. The nice thing is that you can use up some stash yarn to get it done.

Tina Marie had fun showing us her sunflower dish and washcloth. It was a very cute way to learn how to do a circular cast. Several kits were made up, and you have everything you need, except for the needles.

The fruit cocktail workshop will be fun, with knitted hats for kids in “berry” nice designs. The ladies love to try an adorable new pattern. Hats are so quick to knit or crochet that they can fly off your needles in a day or two.

It is nice and cool in our meeting room and there are plenty of seats available during the summer months. We do a “show and tell” on the first Wednesday of the month, so this is a great time to get new ideas.

We welcome new members any time of the year. Come and see what we are up to any Wednesday morning from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. You will find us at the SaddleBrooke One Arts and Crafts Center in room 4. Hope to meet you soon.
