Shepherd's Harvest

A Great Day was had by all those that were able to make it to this years Shepherd's Harvest.  It was so crowded that it was hard to keep tract of each other but we used our cell phones to track each other down when we got lost.  We were able to get a friend of Chris's to take our picture in the same place as last year. We missed Carol as she was at her daughter's graduation.  There were beautiful yarns to feel and buy.  This year some of us went through the animal barns and got to pet the lambs and llamas.

February Meeting

The February meeting falls on the 14th which is Valentine's Day.  Several of us talked about the date and felt that it would be best to continue to meet on the second Tuesday to avoid confusion.  

The February book is Nothing Dauned by Dorothy Wickenden.  I have started the book and it is really good.

January Meeting

We had a great start to the New Year with lots of knitting and laughs at our January Meeting.

Carol collected the last of the Special Olympic Scarves to mail off.  Some were finishing up at the meeting.  Fourteen in all were collected.  Thanks again Carol for sending them in for us.

New books were discuses and  a couple were added to the list.  Think about what books you would like added to our reading list.

Remember the Move

Remember we are moving. This Tuesday the 11th we are meeting at the Panera that is on County Road E and 35E. We are reading the book Remarkable Creatures.

A couple of of us Knit-Wits went to Decorah this weekend with the Minnesota Knitters Guild. We got a private tour of the museum, had great food and fun knitting. Conciser joining the MKG it meets on the third Tuesday so it never interferes with Knit-Lit or Knit-Wits.

See you Tuesday.

We are on the Move

At our September meeting we decided to start meeting at Panera on our regular meeting date and at our regular meeting time. After many years of meeting at the Maplewood library we are randomly kicked out before our scheduled time is done or show up only to find another meeting has been scheduled at our time and it takes precedence over ours. As this is always random and we are not told ahead of time we feel that the library is not conducive place to meet any more. We know that Maplewood Libary is not doing their own scheduling and is in no way responsible but never the less we will be meeting at Panera on 35E and County Road E. We appriciate Becky Hass for starting the group and Maplweood for hosting us all these years.

Several service possibilities were mentioned at the September meeting. Helen is knitting blankets for the families of fallen soldiers. The link to more information is Another service project, that we have done in the past is the scarves for the special Olympics. The link is Carol has found that the Special Olympic scarves this year has a couple of yarn possibility so we don't have to make them out of the horrific yarn like last time. This year you can use there Red Hart Soft, it is a worsted medium and comes in the Really Red and Navy that are being used this year.

Bridgette told us about the upcoming Quilt Show that her quilt group holds at The Redeemer Lutheran Church in White Bear. Also Annette told us about a couple of events: Upper Midwest Alpaca Farm Tours, September 24 & 25 (Saturday & Sunday) Llama Farm Open House (Shady Ridge Farm, New Richmond, WI, October 1 & 2 (Saturday & Sunday). Learn about packing, cart driving and doing obstacle courses with llamas. Watch demos that teach you how to work with llama fiber. Products include llama yarn, roving batts and clouds, carded batts and felting kits, flower pins, wine cozies.

If you have any questions about any of the upcoming events or our move drop me an e-mail and I'll get you contacted to the appropriate person. My e-mail address is
