That's why you go to Rhinebeck, of course!

Looking forward to seeing you on the 21st!

Regarding Rhinebeck, we traditionally meet the 4th Saturday, rather than the 3rd.

I wrote Shanyn to ask her when the farm stand closes, and if there's any way we can meet after that.  We'll see what she says.

Unfortunately,  I don't have any green fiber in my stash. 

I'll be in Washington State and Oregon from 9/18 to 10/1.  Then there's Rhinebeck. 
Are we planning on meeting another Saturday since we don't meet on the Rhinebeck Saturday?

All of us have stashes. I am interested it buying two braids of green top to spin and then ply with some dark green single ply yarn I have. I don't want to buy it on the internet sight or feel unseen.

Today's Meeting

Lucinda Shastid
 

People:

Shelley knitting

Jane knitting (a hat!) and spinning on her Nano

Annie knitting and adding hair plugs to a dog (knitted dog, that is, with hair plugs of yarn)

Lucinda spinning

Sharon (a newcomer) crocheting

Topics were mostly children (2-legged and 4-legged) and grandchildren (ditto).

Our next meeting will be in two weeks, on Saturday, October 5.  There will be no meeting on Saturday, Oct 19 (Rhinebeck) but we'll meet on the 26th instead for a show-and-tell.

Cheap sweater blocking

Lucinda Shastid
 

Someone mentioned last week that there's a store that will block your sweater/shawl/whatever for a very low price.  I don't want to post any more details because I probably will remember them wrong.

Can you tell all of us about it?

Thanks,

Lucinda

Re: Cheap sweater blocking

Joan Conca
 

It's Millers Cleaners in Mt. Kisco.  They block an item for $5 and they do a very good job. I've taken 11 shawls and a vest to be blocked and am very happy with the results.

Ladies,
A few months ago I forwarded a request from Maria Reino who works at West Patent E.S., to ask for help with this project to send hand made hats to Paradise School District in CA which was so devastated by fire last year. This is still ongoing and she and her group are reaching out again as a gentle nudge/reminder that all contributions are greatly welcome and needed.
As you can see they are rather short of their total. So, if any of you lovely knitters or crocheters would like to participate feel free to reach out to Maria or bring your beautiful home made hats to the Library and I will make sure they get to her. Thank you so much for your consideration.
Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow and next week.
All the best.
Margaret

Hi Margaret!
Hope you had a nice summer and that you and your family are well.
 
Our deadline is approaching, we have 87 days left! So far we have a little over 60 hats and our goal is 250+. Will your knitting club(s) be willing to be a part of our project?. Last week we spoke to a member of the administration from Paradise School District and they are beyond excited about getting the hand knitted hats for their students. We would love for members of the Bedford Village Community to join us on this important and meaningful cause.
Attached I’m sending a flyer regarding our project as well as the article published on a local newspaper.
Thank you so much, Margaret!
All the best,
Maria

Knit Picks Blocking Mats

Lucinda Shastid
 

Does anyone have any experience with the Knit Picks blocking mats?  The reviews are so-so - it sounds like there are quality control problems.

Are there better ones I should look at?

Lucindad

Re: Knit Picks Blocking Mats

Shelley Reid
 

If you are interested in alternatives, I use these from Amazon and I haven’t experienced anything adverse. And now that I look at my order history, I will tell you I paid a lot more than $10 for them then and just added a package to my cart. ;)

If you want to try the KP mats, they are typically on sale during the Big Sale (look for it around Nov. 18th this year), either as just a sale item or as part of a special one-day promotion—KP runs several of these throughout the sale, like a $1 pattern sale one day, a BOGO day, etc.

I haven’t used the KP mats so can’t offer any specific feedback on that.

Thanks, Shelley.  I just added a set to my order.  (I'm also getting the Selbu Mittens, and I ordered Traditional Danish Sweaters from KP.  I have always enjoyed traditional costume, so I think I'm going to love it.)

Misfit Markets

Lucinda Shastid
 

A friend introduced me to this today - she received her delivery and opened it while she was there.  It's all organic vegetables that are not saleable by supermarkets because they're too large/too small/misshapen.  You're eating things that would otherwise be thrown away and there is a  lot of variety.  The lettuces have the roots still attached so they're fresh, etc.

I know some people aren't happy with CSAs because there's too much of a few things - not with this box!

https://www.misfitsmarket.com/, in case you're interested.

Lucinda

P.S. She also gave me a lot of fiber that she decided she'll never spin.  I won't be able to come tomorrow, but I'll bring it to the Oct. 26 meeting.
