Grindstone knitters get silly in September

Monthly meetings are fun and interesting.  We had some giggles at our September meeting with a claw foot bathtub showed up in our meeting room.  With perfect timing, we had show and tell for a knitted scrubbie and and a sweater with alligator buttons.

We like to knit the same patterns and think it’s ok to show up with the same scarf someone else is wearing.


We love to share all our work.

Charity knitting.


Grindstone knitters stay busy

Our Grindstone guild knitters are very prolific.  Below is a display of the many knitted items from our ‘show and tell’ from our May and June meetings.

We have a group knitting temperature blankets using different stitch patterns and some with different color schemes, all started on 1/1/17. 20170620_20184820170620_20183320170620_201828
