Welcome Back!

Hey there, Gosh Yarn It!

It’s the start of another lovely semester, and as we’re get back into the swing of things, here’s a brief overview of some exciting upcoming plans!

  • Our Activities Board presentation for official club membership will be sometime on October 4th, so keep your fingers (and needles) crossed!
  • On October 7th, there may be a GYI! excursion, so mark your calendars and keep your eyes peeled for an email.
  • We’re also considering a Halloween movie and craft night, so feedback would be welcomed on that front.
  • There will be a holiday sale this winter, probably just after Thanksgiving.  We are looking for easy patterns with holiday themes so that everyone in the club can get involved in the fundraiser.  Once we compile a list of patterns and links, it will be posted here and announced on our Facebook group.
  • Finally, Gosh Yarn It! now has a Ravelry group.  This knitter got addicted to Ravelry this summer.  It’s an amazing site, but be warned, it can suck you in and swirl you around the online yarniverse for hours until you emerge with balls of felt in your hair and none of your homework done.  That being said, everyone should make an account and join the group!

Keep checking back here for updates, projects, and general yarn fun.
