Tonight we ran knitting lessons at Late Nite. We got a lot of friendly, talented people, many of whom were so proud of what they made that they took it home with them. I for one was proud of them, too. And when all was said and done, we got to keep the leftover yarn, so I'd say the evening was a success.

Included are some pictures I took of the event.

A job well done by Harrison, Kellie, David, Jaci, Hannah, Kat, Provost, and Miranda. :)

Well, I know she's no longer new, but I was just looking through some old pictures on my phone, and I found these. This is Hannah Hlebasko, who was one of our new members this fall. She had just finished her first project knitted in the round, a hat the pattern for which we adapted from the flat hat pattern given to me by the officers when I was new. I was so proud of her, I insisted on taking these pictures to share with all of you! =)

Also a new blog post with this wonderful pattern, very lacy yet very open, great for the coming summer!

Important notice for Wednesday!

From Katie:
"Hey gang,

I had soooo much fun dying yarn last night! It is defiantly worth the endeavor if you've ever thought about trying to do it yourself. Knitty has a great step by step on how we did it. Thanks to everyone who came and made it so fun (and clean!).

We would like everyone to know that Katie will not be at knitting club this Wednesday 3/24 (unfortunately), BUT Heather (and maaaaybe Harrison?) will be there for sure and we hope to keep going on our knit-along project. They are looking great, I still have hope that we can get a PAIR by the end of the semester!

Reba Reader, long time club member, is putting together a pattern book for us for the end of the year. You may have heard about this book before, but now it's really time to send in your patterns. If you can type them up and send them in a file to the club, OR, that would be great!

We would love for any of your original project patterns to be submitted. Any awesome possum project you've worked on all semester or that everyone said ooOOOOoooo to would be really great too! If it is not an original pattern, just be sure to put the designer's name or where you found the pattern to give them credit. Make sure you include any changes you made to the pattern, and what needles, yarn, color, etc YOU used. We want to know about those. AND, if you can submit a picture too, that would be even better! We need all types of patterns and skill levels- knit OR crochet. :)"

From Katie:
"Dear Knitting Club,

We will NOT be holding a regularly scheduled meeting this Monday, March 22nd. We are having a special yarn dying event off campus. If this is something you were wanting to participate in, but we just missed you at the meetings, email us. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

Though we are NOT meeting this Monday at 7:15, WE ARE MEETING on WEDNESDAY 3/24 at 7:15 pm at the normal place on the couches. We will continue one with out knit-along and hope that those who wanted to get started on it have. If you are a fast knitting, it's not too late to start! We can help you along at any step you're on. We wish you luck!"

Update for Wednesday

Hello all!
Tis Harrison, ze Secretary of BSU Knitting and Crocheting Club to give you an important announcement/update!

Heather's Knit-along/baby steps:
-Tonight we just started on the cuff and Katie noted that when she felted hers she would have wanted to knit it longer then the 3inch it said in the pattern so she suggests 3-6 inches for the cuff area before going to the heel. Heather would like everyone to be finished with the cuff and start on the heel during club on Wednesday or if your just starting, it's ok, we can still help you no matter what step you are on, but the group will be starting on the heel if you would like to work until then for Wednesday.

We are planning for Monday around 6:30pm-7pm ish around that time Katie will be having a carpool in order to get to her house for yarn dyeing, Kastrel and Jessie did offer their place for the Kool-aid Dyeing, but can fit about 7 people in the place, so Katie thought we should do it at her place, which could fit more, please email Katie if interested to RSVP.

For those who cannot make it, here are some links for you to read if you would like to try it yourself one day:
