It Is Fair Time!

Between feeling pretty horrible myself, spending part of a day with my son in the ER and trying to retype everything that I lost when my computer crashed, we have managed to get our booth set up at the Western Fair.

We have lots of knitters stop by for a chat and to do some knitting on our charity projects for Keeping Kids Warm. There have also been many people who would like to learn to knit who have stopped for a short demo on how to knit who have added a few stitches to the garter stitch scarf that is in the works. It is great to see how many kids are interested in learning. Only two men have done any knitting and that was only with a lot of encouragement. Even after only being there for three days we have some regulars who are volunteering at the fair who stop by everyday to knit and chat, a very nice lady showed me a new way to purl continental, and I received a thank you card from another lady for teaching her how to knit. It has been great so far!

Tonight is the start of our sock knitting class, Wednesday is the Knitting Goddesses Meeting from 7-9pm and Friday morning is our Friday morning knitting group from 9-12. Woohoo, another fun filled knitting week! All of these are held at Carrie's Quilting and Knitting Shop in Aylmer. The Itch To Stitch knitting booth is at the Western Fair in the Canada building until next Sunday night. If you are at the fair, stop by to do some knitting and say hello. It is always great to meet more knitters!

Hello everyone. I was at the fair while louise was at Her booth. I would like to thank all who participated in the log cabin afghan for Keeping Kids Warm. It was a long 10 days for Us both. Keeping Kids Warm ran the free apple booth in the Market Building. We were overwhelmed by the donations to Us. We can now continue to do what we do for Our Homeless Teens. Thanks Louise, The Knitting Goddesses of Elgin County and to You all. Love Donna (Co-ordinator)
