This weekend the guild had the opportunity to provide a Make N'Take at Artists Uncorked. The project chosen is a super easy hat which can be used as an ornament or a package tie on. Even more awesome is the project uses paper tubing (paper towels rolls, toilet paper etc...) and scraps of yarn. Great project for those ends of balls that always are stashed.

As part of our mission, we educate people on fiber. Many visitors new to the fiber world are unaware of how qiviut feels before being carded and spun. Or what a yak looks like. Or how silk is created from the silk worm.

Saturday, June 10th was also the 5th annual World Wide Knit in Public Day. We happily celebrated the love of knitting by...KNITTING! (Suprise!!)
Many many thanks to our Guild Members who arranged this event. Our next event is June 17th, we will be participating in a progressive knit in public, starting in Wasilla and ending in Palmer.
Remember, knitting is a portable project (except that king size blanket). Take your knitting with you and enjoy the beautiful yet short Alaskan Summer. Share your enjoyment of knitting.
