Stephanie & Steven

Last Friday after work I went over to Steven B's to pick up a kit that I had ordered at YarnOver. Since it was the beginning of Memorial weekend there was only one other customer there so I could look around without wall to wall people, like it usually is when I'm there. As always there were fun patterns to look at and interesting yarn to feel. The best find was Stephanie. Stephanie was a regular at Knit-Lit until her life got complicated and then busy. She looks great and it was wonderful to see her. She works some days at The Yarn Garage and some at Steven B's. I would really encourage you to call ahead to find out when she is working and then go out and see her. She hopes to come back for a visit when her life calms down.

Doing a little switch for our books. We are switching Bel Canto and Annabel. They have been listed correctly on the up coming books. They are now just wrong in the Ramsey County news letter.

Next meeting we have to come up with our next set of book picks. So think about books you would like to read.

Saturday Without A Yarn Event

It seems so strange to have a Saturday with out a yarn event. I am busy getting all the work done that I didn't do after a couple of wonderful weeks full of knitting and friends.

Last Knit-Lit meeting we had a great book and a great time knitting together.

The next book is Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver. It is her newest book but has been around for awhile so there are lots of copies around. It's a think one and so you might want to get started reading now.

Sheppard's Harvest was the best this year. It was the first in many people's memory that it was not raining. It was not only not rainy but it was sunny and warm out.

Four barns of knitting stuff put everyone in a happy place. The food was good. It was most fun to see so many people we knew. I saw people from Knit-Lit that I didn't come with, church people, MKG people and even people from work.

Spent too much. I bought shawl yarn and yarn for shawl like scarves and I don't even wear shawls. Since I had so many shawl pins I decided to I needed to change my ways and there was beautiful yarns to pick from. Also ordered a kit from Steven Be. You have to love that guy.

MKG has picked Chemo hats for their service project this year to honor a past board members that passed away do to cancer. Knit-Lit's first Chemo hats came in this month. A big thank you to Mary Jo and Deb. Keep them coming and we will take them to MKG.
