CSRA Knitters Guild – Aiken, SC

April 5, 2013

April 7, 2013 Meeting Information

Filed under: Uncategorized — aandreje @ 12:39 pm

Break away from the basketball games and bring your pointy sticks to the Aiken County Historical Museum
on Sunday afternoon. And bring your FOs and WIPs for show and tell, OK?

Mary Anne, Julia, and I went to Regency Hospice to donate the lap afghans.
It was a win–win situation: The guild members learned some new techniques, and hospice patients
have a warm, tangible reminder that the community cares for them.

Other business – we’ll hold an election for next years’ officers. The slate of candidates is as follows:

Julia Crider and Mary Anne Todd, co-presidents
Barbara Strack, treasurer

Hope to see you there – Barbara

September 2012 Meeting – New Location

Filed under: Uncategorized — aandreje @ 12:46 pm

Can you feel the turn in the air—it just might, maybe, be approaching Fall? Then it’s time for the CSRA Knitter’s Guild to reconvene and get started with the knitting.

Our first meeting will be Sunday, September 16, 2012 from 3:30 to 4:30 in the meeting room of the Aiken County Historical Museum. We’ve made the switch to this new location because there were so many of us at the last few meetings last spring, it was clear we’d outgrown the room at Harbor Chase.

Marty Foss has worked up an afghan square for us to knit. Bring worsted-weight, solid-colored yarn and appropriately sized needles and we’ll get started on this project during the meeting.

The museum is at Banksia, 433 Newberry Street SW, in downtown Aiken. Big white building with big white brick wall at the intersection of South Boundary and Newberry—you can’t miss it. Details of the facility are at their website: http://www.aikencountyhistoricalmuseum.org/. It’s a real treasure, with many interesting exhibits to see as you journey toward the conference room.

Barbara will update the group on the Kennedy Middle School teaching and any other news.

PROGRAM: Norma Napoleone is teaching “Raspberry Stitch” this month. This stitch is very textured and makes a great scarf, block/blanket, or stripe for an afghan.

February 2012 Meeting Reminder

Filed under: Organization — aandreje @ 4:54 pm

Our next meeting will be Sunday, February 5th at 3:30 in the HarborChase Community room, 1385 Silver Bluff Road, Aiken.

We are going to have a very important discussion about the future of the Guild. Please attend and give your opinion if possible. There will be an email coming out in the next day or so from our President, Barbara Strack, with more information.

If you cannot attend the meeting, you can still vote via email by replying to Barbara.

IMPORTANT REMINDER: Bring yarn donations for Kennedy Middle School – any single skeins of acrylic or blended worsted weight would be great. Does not have to be a full skein but does need to be worsted weight and washable.

Thanks,   Jean Andrews

Our next meeting will be Sunday, September 11th at 3:30 in the HarborChase Community room, 1385 Silver Bluff Road, Aiken.

SEPTEMBER PROGRAM

You’ve spent the whole summer knitting (right?). It’s time to show off those FO’s!

“What I knit on my Summer Vacation” is our program theme. Let’s see those “Summer Flies” shawlettes that everyone was knitting over the warmer months.

ALSO, Jean has been semi-obsessed with cowls lately and will review two patterns – the first is a one skein Chunky weight and uses Linen Stitch, the other has a lace pattern. Both have been huge hits on Ravelry and both are free patterns.
