Pink Day

Pink, the color that reminds us of Breast Cancer awareness was seen in all around during our October 13 meeting. 

Ashley came bearing gifts from Charlotte Radiology to celebrate October Breast Awareness Month.  The 30 ladies in attendance received a neat nylon bag like the one Ashley is holding along with other free goodies that came inside the bag.  Patterns for chemo caps are available from Shelia for anyone interested in donating caps to the Presbyterian Hospital in Matthews. This pattern is for a knitted chemo cap.  The Loving Georgia Lee Tyler crochet pattern can be made using worsted weight or sport weight yarn.

Some of the delicious treats served were also in pink and enjoyed by all.  I especially loved the Pink Fluff. Click on the link for the recipe.
Everyone has appreciated the fleece donation from Delores.  The fleece is being used for blankets which will be donated to Project Linus.  See Shelia if you would like to make a blanket using this fleece.
The refreshments and books table.

Sheila is new to Mint Hill Stitch In and crocheting as well.  She is using a basic crochet stitch to make blanket in Carolina Blue colors.
 Rita has been mastering the art of making  gnomes and adds her very own unique touches.  Each felted boot has a hand sewn edge which is time consuming she reported.  She is also thrilled that one of the gnomes has already been sold.
