DKG Meeting was well attended…

img_1913Even a mermaid showed up. If you were at the meeting you should now be on Ravelry. There is so much you can do. You can organize your own stash or find what you’ve been looking for in someone else’s. You can find patterns that go with the yarn you just bought but didn’t have a plan for. To make the most of Ravelry you need a computer and a way to take pictures. You can take pictures of your stash or pictures of the projects you are working on or better yet the projects you have finished.

Rebecca did a great job of getting us excited about Ravelry. Now we just have to have fun with it. Like Rebecca said, ‘You can’t really mess up anything by just looking around on Ravelry’. We passed around a sign-up sheet for knitters who want to learn even more about Ravelry. More about that later. Two knitters that have just joined the DKG Blog are waiting for this message.

Happy Ravelering,


Ravelry and the DKG Meeting

img_1909This is the meeting we have all been waiting for. Ravelry is a website for people who love knitting, crocheting, spinning, weaving, and dyeing. It will help you keep your stash in some kind of order. Do you think you know everything there is to know about Ravelry? Well hold on to your hats. Rebecca Low has the presentation that will knock your socks off. Whether you have never even gotten onto the Ravelry site or think you know everything there is to know about the site, Rebecca will have something to teach you. That’s what the DKG is all about. Let’s learn something new in 2017 that will help us help each other. Rebecca will be bringing a “hand-out” that she has diligently put together. All you need to bring is a writing utensil. DON’T EVEN BRING YOUR KNITTING. You won’t be able to knit during her presentation. The lights will be low and you will be watching a slideshow. Rebecca doesn’t think she will have enough time to share everything she has prepared so there will be no questions during her presentation. She will answer questions at the end of her presentation and before show and share. We will find plenty of help for you AFTER this meeting. Every meeting we have is centered around Knitting at the DKG.

See you on Monday January 16, 2017 @ St Mary’s Center@10 am and 7 pm.

PS  I should have had “computer” in the title of this Blog. Knitters like to knit and us older gals would rather knit than play on our computer. You need to have a computer and access to the internet to play on Ravelry.
