Tonight--

Hey gang! I'm going to try to remember my digital camera, so if you are coming to the Park Slope meeting at Ozzie's tonight, and have a finished object or project you want on the blog, bring it, and I'll upload it when I get home.

Ideas regarding this year's Knit-Out:

I think that we should definitely consider whipping together a quick flyer to pass out during the festivities to interested parties... who knows, it might garner some interest in the knitting groups of Brooklyn. I am planning to throw one together for my group (Bensonhurst-Midwood SnB [bhurstsnb@yahoogroups.com]) and thought I might want to do one for Park Slope as well if the gang is interested.

Wednesday at the Gate


Hi Knitters,
I intend on being at the Gate this coming Wednesday (address: 5th avenue and 3rd street in Park Slope). If you're the first one to get there, please secure the bench under the light in the south-west corner of the patio...and save a Heiferweissen for me ;-)
See you there.
