Knitting at the Library + the Frolic + our next meeting

Well knitters, I think we'd better keep on knitting hats, toques and mitts because winter doesn't seem want to end!

Our next evening of knitting at the Dundas Library is Wednesday, April 17, starting at 6:30pm. Knitting at the library is free and everyone is welcome to attend.

This is also the time of year for frolicking knitters. The Toronto guild, known as the Downtown Knit Collective, is holding its annual Knitter's Frolic on April 27-28 at the Japanese Cultural Centre in Toronto. The Frolic includes workshops and a marketplace.

The Creativ Festival is taking place that same weekend (April 26-27) at the International Centre on Airport Rd in Mississauga. This is a rather extensive show with crafters of almost every genre represented. Knitting, beading, sewing, you name it. It's like a crafter's dream come true.

And just a reminder that our next meeting is on Tuesday, May 7 at 7pm. The very talented Kate Atherley will be there to give a session on Fair Isle and Intarsia. I'll be sorry to miss that one. YOU WILL NEED TO BRING TWO DIFFERENT COLOURS OF SCRAP YARN AND NEEDLES SUITABLE FOR THAT YARN.

Happy Spring everyone! It's coming, I promise!

Next meeting April 2nd - don't forget your entrelac!

I hope you all had an enjoyable long Easter weekend. Our next meeting is Tuesday, April 2nd at 7pm at the Marlatt Family Centre in Dundas. Rochelle Smith from Grand River Yarns will return this month, so don't forget to bring your entrelac projects.

We'll have show-and-tell and other bits of business at the meeting, including the upcoming workshop at St. John's Anglican Church Parish Hall in Ancaster on June 1st. REGISTRATION WILL BE ACCEPTED AT THE APRIL GUILD MEETING. There are only 28 spaces at the workshop so if you want to attend, best to register early. The cost is $45 for Guild members. The workshop will include a session about measurements for garments, as well as a little social knitting time.

Here are some pics from last month's meeting,including a completed beret from new Guild member Shelley. Well done!
