We are a group of knitters of all skill levels from around the Annapolis, MD area. Our meetings are held the first Tuesday of every month from 7-9PM on the 7th floor of the Belcher Pavilion at Anne Arundel Medical Center (AAMC). We are very grateful to AAMC for providing such a great meeting space for us. New members and visitors are welcome to attend a meeting and hopefully join us. Dues are $25 annually and support speakers and activities throughout the year. At every meeting we share our current projects and knitting needles and yarn are usually in our hands.

Check our our Ravelry group ...SOUTH RIVER KNITTING GUILD to see what members have been knitting. More information about us in the posts below.

December Holiday Gathering:  Contact Karen for details.

November:  Busy first week with Guild meeting on Tuesday followed by Ann Weaver Workshop on Saturday.  Both well attended.  Member Terry Sayler led guild members in a "how to" knit Knitted Knockers, one of our charity projects.  The Dots and Dashes Shawl created by Ann using Neighborhood Fiber Company yarn will showcase color and texture once they are completed.  Ann explained and demonstrated color theory with her own work and those of artists.

Terry leads members in knitting knockers.

October meeting:  Feel Good Yarn does feel very good with cotton and silver spun together.  Another large group of members enjoyed the trunk show with Laurie.

June 2:  Speaker: Lynn Beattie, Hunt Valley Cashmere, introduced us to her goats and then the wonderful cashmere yarn those and other goats produce.  We shopped and shopped in her baskets and marveled at all the samples she brought, from afghans to shawls to sweaters and gloves.  Lynn donated a kit of cashmere as a door prize and Terry was the lucky winner. Again, we had a wonderful crowd of avid knitters.

May, our annual "End of Year Dinner" brought out many members in their knitted finery.

Several local shops donated door prizes.  We thank them all.
 Marcia's challenge to knit a scarf for the Breast Center was a huge success.

Some of what we learned at the April meeting: Ravelry 2.0 with Brenda (aka SilverSiren):
   *Ravelry continues to change and evolve with lots of tips and ideas for its members
   *Tips:  every Thursday there is a new one on the homepage so we can upgrade our knowledge
   *Road Trip Planner: under "Yarns" down the left column, there is a link to "Going on a trip" that allows you to organize your ride with stops at LYSs
   *Tags: great way to organize all those patterns moved to "Favorites" so you can quickly find the one you want when you want it
   *Groups:  find other like-minded knitters/crocheters nearby
Meeting very well attended with several new members. "Knit Doctors" were "in" for the first time and provided advice to several members; they will return occasionally.
