WE LOVE TO KNIT !

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.

The Knit-a-long has started and many of us are enjoying the fun of knitting this cute, little bag and and maybe adding some beads.  Virginia got us off to a good start.  February we will finish.

 Sherry finished her Ann Weaver Dot and Dashes shawl and showed it off.
Marcia collected more scarves for the Breast Center and hats for the NicU.

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.
