Hi Archie,

My name is Fatima & I was paired with Aggie for the Secret Santa exchange. I was unable to attend due to a last minute change of plans. I e-mailed Aggie asking if I can mail it to her or meet with her at the next knitting circle. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Have a great holiday & a happy & prosperous new year.

Pre-Happy Holidays

I'm sure many of you are hard at work making knitted garments for loved ones.  But, I feel that we, the knitters, also deserve a present that is hand crafted and skillfully made.
Hence, the knitting secret santa was born.  Interested????
Here are the details:

a) HOW DOES THE SECRET SANTA WORK?
Each person who signs up will be expected to knit / crochet / craft an item for someone, as well as receive an item.  
You will have 4 weeks to work on the item.  We will meet on Thursday, December 22nd to exchange gifts.

b) ONE SKEIN?
Yes, you are to use the equivalent of ONE skein to make the item (two, if you are using very small skeins).  If you use multiple colors, the total yardage should be no more than one skein.  Any one-skein item is fair game: socks, hats, skinny scarfs, mitten, table cloths, etc...

c) DO I HAVE TO BUY YARN?
No, feel free to use yarn from your stash.  This is not meant to be a financial burden, just a fun activity.

d) HOW DO I SIGN UP?
This year, we are doing everything electronically.  Click here to log on to ELFSTER.  Enter your name and you're done.

e) DEADLINES
-Sign up by midday Wednesday.  I will close it and should receive the names of the person you have to knit for by the evening.
Start casting on this Thursday at our weekly meeting.
-All projects must be finished by December 22nd,  If you can't attend, make arrangements with me to drop off your present BEFORE the 22nd

f) POSSIBLE QUESTION TO ASK
Once you are done, it is advised that you send your giftee a few questions to help decide what to make.  Here are some suggested questions:
-Male or Female?
-Ravelry ID?
-Favorite Color & Least Favorite Color?
-Favorite and least favorite yarn?
-ALLERGIES
-Shoe Size?
-Head Circumference?
-Glove Size?

Take Care,
-Archie

PS - If you haven't picked up your gift from last time, please email me ASAP.
