We had a really good turn-out at the last meeting. Eighteen members, including four new ladies, had a go at Beth's crocheted shopping bags. Great fun! She WILL be making a return visit.

There will be a Ravelry stand, with various things going on. There was talk of a yarn swap, but I'm not sure. We had discussed meeting up, and the Ravelry stand may be a good place to meet. There is a good chance a little knitting may take place there.
Remember to wear your Ravelry badges!
I look forward to seeing some of you there......I will doubtless be seen spending a small fortune on yarn!

I just divided for the neck, but am unsure how to do the decreases for the next part. I don't understand the part where it says "dec 1 st at armhole edge of next 10 rows, then on foll 3 alt rows, then on foll 4th row and at same time dec 1 st at neck edge of 2nd and every foll alt row."
At this point I am on the RS of the knitting and have turned the work from the neck side towards the armhole side.
Does that mean I should dec 1 stitch on RS and WS of the armhole edge of the next 10 rows, then only on the alternate rows for the next 3 rows? I feel like that would make the armhole side decrease at a very sharp angle.
I read it to mean this:
Row 1 dec 1 st at armhole edge
Row 2 dec 1 st at armhole edge dec 1 st neck edge
Row 3 dec 1 st at armhole edge
Row 4 dec 1 st at armhole edge dec 1 st neck edge
Row 5 dec 1 st at armhole edge
Row 6 dec 1 st at armhole edge dec 1 st neck edge
Row 7 dec 1 st at armhole edge
Row 8 dec 1 st at armhole edge dec 1 st neck edge
Row 9 dec 1 st at armhole edge
Row 10 dec 1 st at armhole edge dec 1 st neck edge
Row 12 dec 1 st at armhole edge dec 1 st neck edge
Row 14 dec 1 st at armhole edge dec 1 st neck edge
Row 16 dec 1 st at armhole edge dec 1 st neck edge
Is that right??
Thanks for your help! :)

There is a very good stitch library, which it is possible to download from (free). This stitch is 'snowangel'. (But I have adapted it slightly).
I think it is time to start making a note of the Festivals and Fairs that are going to take place this year. Please add to the list as you hear of them, or let me know, and I will.
Wonderwool Wales will be taking place on 25th and 26th April, at the Royal Welsh Showground.
Fibrefest is 22nd and 23rdAugust, at Coldharbour Mill, Uffculme, Devon.
I would like to arrange a visit to Devon Fine Fibres at their Organic farm near Bampton, but would like to know the level of interest first. You can visit Lesley's blog, and get a feel of the farm. (http://devonfinefibres.wordpress.com/).
