WE LOVE TO KNIT !

We are a group of knitters of all skill levels from around the Annapolis, MD area. Our meetings are held the first Tuesday of every month from 7-9PM on the 7th floor of the Belcher Pavilion at Anne Arundel Medical Center (AAMC). We are very grateful to AAMC for providing such a great meeting space for us. New members and visitors are welcome to attend a meeting and hopefully join us. Dues are $25 annually and support speakers and activities throughout the year. At every meeting we share our current projects and knitting needles and yarn are usually in our hands.

Check our our Ravelry group ...SOUTH RIVER KNITTING GUILD to see what members have been knitting. More information about us in the posts below.

NEXT MEETING TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 1
The Silver Siren, Brenda, is coming with a trunk show of her knitting notions and jewelry.  Great holiday gifts.

October was December holiday themed.  We practiced 2-color knitting making an ornament and shared free patterns for quick, last-minute gifts.  Karen taught and Suzy helped her demonstrate how to make a stitch below the one on the needle.....

Since so many scarves were made with Nora's yarn we modeled them for a picture to share with her.

Some members made a field trip to the Shenandoah Valley Fibre Fest in Berryville and found it very interesting and worth the 2 hour drive.  Definitely several will be going next September 23 or 24.  A fascinating goat discovered there is the pygora goat, a cross between a pygmy and  a white angora goat.....luscious fiber.

The Guild is off to a great start for this new program year.  Thirty three knitters, some new to the Guild, came together to help decide the programs.  Results of the "blue dot" voting will be announced at the next meeting.  Marcia collected many beautiful scarves for the AAMC Breast Center.



The October 4 meeting will have a December Holiday theme.  Details to come shortly.  Members are asked to bring their favorite last minute gift idea to be included in a booklet we will all get.  More on this later too.
