November Meeting

Sheri is working on a scarf and wearing a scarf made by her secret pal, she tells us that her husband has really taken a liking to her secret pal scarf, so if it comes up missing we will know where she can look.

Susie has a basket full of goodies. From crocheted hangers, hats and lots of neat things. As soon as I have more time I want to make as many things as Susie does!

Paula’s friend is working on her first crocheted hat. She is doing a great job!

Mary has been beading again. Her artwork is amazing. Mary also brought a box of hats & mittens that she has made for the hospital nursery neonatal unit. I think the box held 50 hats. Mary you are truly an inspiration to all of us. Mary was unable to attend the meeting that we learned the potholder stitch, so while we were at Twist one Thursday night I taught her how to do it and she brought her potholder that she had finished.

Rosina has made a cute snowman and a beautiful doily.

Linda C. has done it again with her popcorn stitch doily.

Pat is wearing a top that she has made and she is working on a jacket shawl.

I had to confess that I had knitted a scarf and hat while I was in Houston at the International Quilt Market and Festival. For some reason I just loved making the pom pom on the hat and wondered why I had never made one before. I also bought some silk yarn with sequins at the Festival in Houston and had just enough to crochet some trim on a recycled childs sweater. Then everyone wanted to know about the top and scarf that I was wearing. The top is made from a vintage bodice and my sister attached it to fabric and made me a baby doll top out of it. I love it. Thank you Jackie! The scarf is made from motifs that were supposed to be a sweater but never grew into one, so I sewed the motifs together and made a scarf out of them.

Every meeting we are blessed with items donated by some of our guild members. The November meeting was no exception. Linda C. donated doilies and butterflies as she did every meeting and look, it is the snowman that Rosina made. He was given away too. Thank you Rosina and Linda.

Jackie has been crocheting a scarf, imagine that, it is pink. One of her favorite colors.
Good job Jackie!

Sue is working on a headband warmer from the yarn that her secret pal gave her.
Wendy is working on a knitted blanket for her not yet born niece. We don’t discriminate against knitters. Ha! Ha!

Geralyn is starting an afghan that I will be helping her with. The squares are not exactly square, but we are going to get to the bottom of that soon. Don’t give up Geralyn!

Cori is working on a scarf made out of Noro sock yarn.

Susan’s round and square afghans.

Paula’s hats and scarf.

Lesa’s baby sweater and completed afghan that she started last month. Good job Lesa.

Thank you Pam for teaching us how to read the international symbols and helping us understand the different symbols. I had a great time doing the scarf.

Happy Crocheting! Tamara
