We are a group of knitters of all skill levels from all around the Annapolis area.
Check out our Raverly group ... SOUTH RIVER KNITTING GUILD!
We are so greatful to AAMC for providing such a great meeting space ... We're always making pink scarves for the Breast Center (see below) and Knitted Baby Caps for the NICU & nursery. (This hat pattern is knitted flat ... they can easily be worked in the round, too.) ... We appreciate every bit of help!
And ... We've started a couple of new group projects.
We learned to draft & knit from silk caps & hankies ... decadent!
Our Felt Clogs (Fiber Trends) were a lot of fun & kept our feet warm through our snowy winter.
The February Lady Jacket knit-a-long was a hit! Thanks to Sarah & Kathy for guiding us through this one.
We all knitted squares in many different patterns, techniques and colors for patchwork-type sampler afghans as a fund-raiser for the AAMC Foundation ... They turned out GORGEOUS & were a real success at the auction in April. Now we're gearing up for next year!
The E. Zimmermann's Baby Surprise Jacket project was a big success! They all turned out great and each very different! A BIG Thanks to
Kellie Nuss !
These are the results from one of our group projects ... "FROM THE TOP"; Nature Speak Knit's top-down, set-in sleeve crew neck pullover. They are "looking marvelous!!!".(... Thanks Jeanne!)
Lots of Noro (Silk Garden, Kureyon, Sakura), Ellen's Half Pint Silk/Mohair, Manos Del Uruguay, Debbie Bliss Silk Road Aran, Malibrigo, Stonehedge .... the results are stunning!
Another of our recent group project is Nature Speak Knits' "RAVENELI"; a fun jacket or vest knit in the round with a circular, big shawl-type collar. Again, lots of Noro, this time run with dk and worsted solid colors, Malabrigo, tripled dks in lots of combos! (Again ... Thanks Jeanne!)
Our on-going charity project is creating scarves (with pink in them) for The AAMC Breast Center in the Health Sciences Pavilion Pavilion at Anne Arundel Medical Center. We've all been touched ... we want to reach out & touch.
Please feel free to join us. We meet on the FIRST TUESDAY of each month from 7pm to 9pm on the 7th floor in one of the classroom of the new Health Scienes Pavilion on the AAMC Medical campus, Medical Parkway, Annapolis, MD (right next to Sajak). We have a blast!
