Summer Knitting update

With so many things going on, I thought I better send out an update ASAP!  It sounds like we had a great guild meeting this month, sorry I missed it.  Here are upcoming events for the area:

August Brunch & Secret Sock Exchange! In place of our regularly-scheduled guild meeting, we will be gathering for bruch at La Galette (click here for directions) to enjoy fresh pastries, knitting and most importantly to exchange our socks for the Secret Sock Knit-A-Long!  All knitters are welcome, so grab your knitting and a friend and come join us for a bit of fun and relaxation!  Mark your calendar for Saturday, Aug. 11th from 10 to 11:30am.   This is a great time to find out more about the guild!  And did I mention that there will be special gifts for everyone?  Yes, gifts!

If you have socks to exchange, but can’t make it…feel free to contact Kim or another guild member to make arrangements to take them for you or you can make arrangements individually with your sock buddy.  Kim will post everyone’s buddy to the blog & Ravelry pages on August 11th after the brunch.

There will be NO Guild meeting on Tuesday, Aug 14th!    *Look for your invitation via email!

 

Ravellenic Games!  Are your needles ready?  Do you have your WIP tagged for the event?  If not, the Ravellenic Games kick-off this Friday, July 27th at 3pm!  Check out our Ravelry page for all of the details.  Basically, pick one of your old, lingering projects from your Ravelry page, tag it with TeamCKKG and join us as we wrestle our works-in-progress during the Olympic Games.  Gold, Silver and Bronze will be awarded for members who participate (and we will have awards for participation as well)!  Let us know if you want to participate, but are confused…I was!!!

WSU Yarn Bombing!  We are SUPER excited to a part of this awesome art installation in honor of the Ulrich Museum’s grand re-opening!  If you have never been a part of an official art installation, here is your chance.  And, they are even filming the entire project and will have dvd’s available.  Pretty cool!  We need lots of help!  Click here for full details.  CKKG has signed up to cover 6 statues (mostly smaller busts) along with completing granny squares and long color strips for larger projects.   Photos and details are posted below & are on Ravelry!  The event will take place September 15th!   Let’s show the community and college students what knitters really think about!

Yarn Bombing for CKKG  Click this link to see the sculptures & let us know if you want to claim one!  If you don’t have the time to commit to a larger project, you can always work on a granny square or long strip of color (16 feet long).

Hope to see all of you on Saturday, Aug 11th!  Remember, there is no Tuesday evening meeting in August!

Talk to you soon,

Kim
