Friday in review

We got the answer to the poll on Friday night. Seems Suzanne and Kim T. are the same age [but I'm not telling what it is ~ ask them!]. A good time was had by all and Kate has pictures to prove it. Thanks for your hospitality Kate.

Camille sent this message to share "What a lovely evening! Sunny skies, a beautiful home, tasty goodies, great people and knitting. Oh, and I can't neglect to mention the great conversation. In our inimitable BSKG style, our conversations traversed from knitted thongs for EVERYONE to saving the waterways of Michigan.
This birthday was special to me, not because it was a milestone, but a gift. After two car accidents and the death of two of my contemporaries, I have come to recognize just how special a birthday can be.
It was also a honor to share the stage with Judith. Such a giving heart is rare theses days.
So from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU to everyone - for your company, conversations, cards and gifts. I may not have been the youngest at the party, but I did feel very youthful and I had alot of fun."

Missed the Beanery?





Fret not! In case of inclement weather, we bring the Beanery experience to you—virtually. We were fortunate to see Suzanne in all her StaPuff glory (looked very nice!) and had fun with a bit of Ravelry work. Laurie (Lori?) fi
nished her sock amid cheering and admiration. Is that the Bellatrix pattern I see in front of LindaLu? Or maybe Fawkes?

dog and cat hair

Thursday evening Harriet and I were at have you any wool? where we met Nancy. She is one of a group of spinners/knitters who are using dog and cat hair to make things. The $ raised will go to help provide for animals. Well, being the lovescritters [name on ravelry] person that I am.... I offered to collect pet fur from any of you wanting to *share*. You can bring it to me at BSKG Guild meetings and I will pass it on.

Be sure to say Happy March Birthday to Kim T. in addition to our other birthday girls.
