September and October 2007 meeting

September meeting: The secretary nor the president was in attendance, so there aren't any minutes nor a listing of the Show and Share items. At the meeting, there was a lot of discussion regarding the Tennessee State Fair and the display and judging of the knitted items. There never seems to be an adequate amount of space for displaying the knitted items as there is for the quilts. Why does quilting take such priority over knitting???

At the October meeting, there were only 4 of us in attendance...Charisse, Barb, Kim and Liana.

We discussed a couple of upcoming events:

Cheryl Schaefer is visiting Angel Hair Yarn Company (LYS) on Monday, October 22, 2007 from 6-7:30 PM. It is knit night that night too, so make sure you bring a folding chair with you. She'll be bringing some of her fabulous yarns with her.

Saturday October 27th brings the Fiber Festival to Cannonsburg Village in Murfreesboro. Great place to pick up some fine rovings. 10 am to 5 pm.

Sally Melville, author of the series "The Knitting Experience" will also be at Angel Hair Yarn Co on Nov 10 and 11.

Crazy Aunt Purl will be visiting and doing a book signing at Barnes and Noble-Opry Mills on Monday, October 29 at 7 PM.

As for Show and Share:

Kim showed us her beautiful FO Lady Eleanor stole. Knit in Noro Silk Garden, pattern by Kathleen Power from Scarf Style.

Kim also showed the Icarus Shawl from Interweave Knits. Knit in Malabrigo Lace weight yarn.

Barb showed us the King Harold Street Hat from The Art of Fair Isle Knitting, yarn is a pure Shetland wool by Jamieson & Smith.

Charisse was knitting a basic hat in Berroco Pale merino yarn. She was also working on the Elizabeth Zimmerman pattern for the Tomten Jacket. Yarn used Rowan Scottish Tweed.
