Semesterly Recap

As the semester comes to a close, we at Gosh Yarn It! have a lot to be proud of, and a lot to look forward to in the future.

This fall brought in a huge amount of interest, with lots of new faces.  We’re always excited to have new members!  Also, we set up a Ravelry group, managed by Karen, one of our new members.

Gosh Yarn It! also set up a table at Night Market, selling cookies and handmade yarnwear and generally spreading the gospel of yarn.

In early autumn, we applied for official recognition under the Activities Board at Columbia.  Sam, our fearless leader, really pursued the opportunity to gain funding and the ability to book space.  As of now, GYI! has passed the first round of considerations (!!!) and is under review for the second round.

The Gosh Yarn It! weekly email was on point all semester, with different, clever themes each week.  The blog also had (intermittent) Technique Tuesdays postings for both knitters and crocheters.

Did we miss something?  Drop a comment!

Best of luck on finals, everyone, and remember that knitting and crocheting can relieve stress and improve mental health.  Plus, you can make all kinds of stuff, like a second brain.

This should come in handy for exams.
