The following Nutters were in attendance:  Nanook, Beady Boop, Beady Bo Peep, Nutter525, and Kissing Bandit.


An Important Announcement

SoKaN will be plying their crafts and peddling their wares at Pyrate Fest 2010!  Really, you must come.    We’ll have pirate dolls (they’re all the rage), jewelry in the Sand and Surf Collection, pirate prayer hankies (handy when you’re lost at sea), belts for blokes, and booty bags.

Project/Progress Notes


SoKaN welcomed Kissing Bandit to her first SoKaN meeting.  She has knitting experience, but for her first meeting she elected to be a Nutter and entertain us with tales of her kissing adventures. Quite a hussy, this one.  (Wheeee!)

The Elitist Jerk completed a scarf!  And then the knitting-Nutter taught Knitter Knazi a thing or two about knitting.  You can catch Rainbow below flashing SoKaN’s gang sign.

Beady Bo Peep completed a beaded jellyfish key ring.

Nutter525 completed two belts for blokes this week.  She began a third.

Rainbow tried out big needles today in an attempt to work out the issues she has with tension.  She made a…potholder?

Nanook continued started a new prayer hanky after visiting “Handy Dandy.”  (That’s Nanook-speak for Hobby Lobby).

Skattur finished the base of The Knit Wit’s flag.  The Knit Wits have big plans for their flag; Nutters, beware!

Knitter Knazi’s yarn finally told her she was making a booty bag.  It’s in progress.

Knitter Knazi decided to create a logo to advertise SoKaN’s presence at the event on the Pyrate Fest website.  (Pyrate Fest is going to be really cool and you should go.)
