Good Morning Everyone,

Another beautiful day, a little cool, but I'll take it after all the rain we have had.

On Sunday we had our Happily Hooked on Crochet Club meeting in a beautiful
setting. Our member, Chava, hosted us at her home and it was a great meeting.
Lots of good food, socializing and working too. We were busy making much requested chemo caps. One of our members, Diane G made 14 for the cause.
I was thrilled that I was able to make two. I made the butterfly hat from a
free pattern that Dee provided us with. Fast, easy and really beautiful.

In the first photo you can see my hat. Takes me just one hour to complete, I made one the night before and one at the meeting. In addition to making our caps, eating and chatting, we had a yarn swap. I don't know how it happened, but I left with more yarn than I brought. The object was to clean out my stash!

In the last photo, Diane G and Cathy are cutting out labels and attaching them to
each hat showing the recipient that they are made and given with love.

Great meeting, great group, I miss it when I cannot attend.

Have a wonderful day,


PS: I still have not figured out how to caption my photos (waiting for Dee to help me out here).

Wow, look at all those hats. I bet you have a lot of fun together. Do you have to have cake too?! It would be rude not to try a piece...

Yarn-swaps are dangerous! Just say NO! (Oh, but first, can I just have a fondle of that pretty blue yarn?)

Took a little time finding but here is where the pattern for Olivia's Butterfly Hat pattern is:
