Needle case patterns

It was great to see everyone at our December meeting.  And well done!  The auction raised more than $200 for our favourite local charity.

Several people asked about knitting needle cases and Pam has kindly provided a link to Tipnut, a site that has many lovely patterns for needle cases. You can find patterns for several cases here, including patterns for storing circular needles.

Or, you could ask for a new case from Santa.  Here are a few Christmas gift ideas from The Purple Purl on Queen St. East in Toronto.  The Needle Emporium also has a great selection of cases and bags.

Happy holiday knitting (and sewing) everyone!

December Meeting

Hi everyone,

We are having our annual  "de-stashing" auction this Tuesday, December 5th.  

Please bring yarn, books needles or other accessories from your stash that you think another knitter may enjoy. Please try to ensure ball-bands are on the yarn or write out a brief description about the yarn. Unsold yarn will be donated to a senior’s home and the proceeds of the auction will go to a charity.

Please bring a sheet of paper with your item written at the top. Members will write their bids on this paper. Make sure you bring a pen for your own bidding!
