Knitters, Etc., January 2009

Neither snow nor rain nor sleet. . . can keep the knitters from gathering in Aberdeen! Despite slick roads across the Dakota prairie, we had a wonderful turnout for our January get-together at the Red Rooster.

Two new Heidi's joined us, one driving in from Eureka and one from Ipswich. Kathleen Taylor also made the trip from outside Redfield, 40 miles away.

At our December meeting, Sheryl put out the call for Special Olympics scarves. Our group knit and crochet 16 scarves for the cause. How fun to see the variety of designs!

We always enjoy Susie's creative contributions. On Friday morning she decided to craft something to bring that afternoon. Here she is with her recycled sweater creature/creation. Gotta love those eyes! Suzie is wearing a freeform crochet vest she's working on.
Susie also shared some of her hand painted heart creations.

As I looked around our circle on Friday, and saw all the laughter, conversation, and idea-sharing, I felt truly grateful to be part of this extraordinary group of creative women.
