November meeting 11-8-2007

There were 6 in attendance at this November meeting - Charisse, Liana, Sue, Janet, Peggy, Barb.

Charisse and Sue had gone to the Fiber Fest in Murfreesboro and raved about the hand dyed silks and wools.

Charisse shared her copy of the new Big Book of Yarn, we discussed Ravelry and how wonderful it was. We are able to search for patterns and yarns and what people on Ravelry are knitting with those items. Ravelry is a huge database of yarns, patterns, photos, books, designers, etc.

Secret Santa (rules here) will be exchanged at our December meeting on December 13.
Rules: $25 limit, has to be knitting related and gift certificates are ok.

As for Show and Share:
Janet was working on gloves made from Koigu and Satakieli (a yarn from Finland)
