Happy St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day Everyone,

I had a few very busy crochet filled days. On Sunday, I attended the monthly meeting of the Happily Hooked on Crochet Chapter of CGOA. It was a very busy meeting. One of our Founding members Dee >sent out a call for help and so many of our members responded. Dee's daughter is appearing in her schools production of Fiddler on the Roof, and Dee, somehow got volunteered to supply shawls for the cast members to wear. When she found out that she would need some 30 shawls, she reached out to our members for help. You can see the response in the photos. Aren't crocheters the greatest!

We always have "show and tell" and here a just a few of the photos, I'll post more in a day or so. Irene is dwarfed by the sweater that she made for the favorite man in her life. Cathy had a great idea, she is making motifs from my newest book (THE COMPLETE PHOTO GUIDE TO CROCHET)using wool and a larger hook, then she plans on felting them to be used as coasters.

There were so many things going on, every one busily working on projects, sharing ideas and helping each other.

Dee then gave a demonstration on blocking, using blocking rods and steam, the members loved this and were eager to learn.

All in all, a great day.

Enjoy your day,
