A New Year message from Guild President, Cynthia Doherty

As the calendar keeps turning, we find the New Year is fast upon us.  Sometimes it is hard to imagine that we will ever get past these Covid years. But a New Year is at our doorstep and we have hope.  Life has changed and we have adapted.  I have new masks in the car, in my coat pockets, in my pocket book and my knitting bag.  It has just become routine.  

But somethings don't change.  When a New Year begins it's hard not to think over the past year and changes that could be made to make life a bit better.  We often think of things like eating better, getting more sleep, getting a better budget going, or maybe adding more activity into our routine.

This January the Guild is taking a look at our "knitting health".  For me, knitting is my happy place and what brings me joy.  It has carried me through this pandemic and my heart would break if I had to give it up. Like many of you my hands, wrists and/or neck hurts after lots of knitting.

January's Guild programs begins with an extra "Out of the Blue"  event:  Carson Demers will share his passion for keeping us "creating healthfully ever after".   The January Guild Meeting features  Andrea Wong who will talk about knitting Portuguese Style.

My resolution is firm:  to learn how to knit more comfortably and how to knit in a way to prevent injury.  What is yours?

Cynthia Doherty, GBKG President
