May 4th, 2013

We had another awesome turnout for Knit Nuts this past Saturday!
Wendy invited her friend Elizabeth to join us and we are looking forward to getting to know her better.

Maureen and Kory who are both fairly new to our group were able to come as well and we are enjoying their "young" ness...LOL Donna Mitchell has been able to come and visit with us lately and it's been nice having her so often.

Sandy stays very busy with her church and music work, but she has also been able to attend quite a few meetups lately. We love all that she is able to share with us.
Wendy, Kim, Donna Van Sant, Rose and I were also so happy to be there as well.

 Amanda was able to come and she brought her new little boy named Blake to show us. He is so adorable
and he was so quiet! We all shared time getting to hold and cuddle with him. It's been a long time since I held one that little. Thanks for bringing him Amanda!

Kim and Wendy encouraged us to save up our money for the TKGA show that is being held in Concord in October. Members get in for FREE and get a discount on classes, so I finally decided to register with them. The dues are $30 and you can sign up online here. You also get I think 4 issues of their Cast On magazine and some other goodies available online at their website. They won't have info on the Concord show until later on. We have also been discussing meeting at Rose's home and driving to the show together. I'm sure we'll talk more on that at a later date.
 Since we have been meeting back at Dilworth Coffee (Mint Hill Cafe) and they have been so gracious in letting us meet I thought it would be nice to say thank you by giving them some dishcloths to use in the coffee shop. So, anyone interested in sharing a dishcloth, please have one ready and bring it to the June 1st meeting. I'll have a card for us to sign and we'll present them all together.

Also, Donna (Van Sant) has mentioned wanting to have a yarn/book swap. So on that same day June 1st we will have our first official SWAP! If you have yarn to give away please have that separate from yarn or books you want to sell. This would be a great way to reduce our yarn hoard and get some great deals on some (new to us) yarn/book (s)! Please have your yarn or books marked with the price you want! Also, be sure to have your checkbook or cash to pay each lady you purchase from. We will all meet in the parking lot at our cars to shop. There just isn't enough room in the coffee house. We'll have the swap promptly at 2 pm, so be sure to get there on time. You don't want to miss a bargain! Afterwards, please put your purchases in your car!

If the weather looks to be rainy, then we'll postpone the swap. I'll let you know if that's the case.
Ok, well I think that's all for now....see you all soon!
