Some of you have heard that I have been looking, a while now, for a group to crochet with. Some of you also know what happened at the last knitting crochet group I went to. Let’s just say I won’t be going back there.
A week ago, a friend I met at my BFF Yarn Shop, emailed me to say she and some other ladies were going to get together and wanted to know if I’d like to go. You bet!
I arrived at the front door and realized I didn’t know who I was meeting. The friend I mentioned above was going to be a little late. eekk…. Before the door closed behind me, a woman calls out to me and then introduces herself and the woman with her. What a huge difference between this group and that other one. Wow, someone said hi to me and introduced themselves! What a concept! I’m still geeking about it.
Here are the ladies. There was at least 11, including me. I was too busy talking to count.
The highlight of the night was to model some finished projects. Here is Diane modeling her Sea Shell Shawl. She made it for her mother. Isn’t is exquisite? This is making me want to knit. =O Shocking.
Made with Wagtail Yarns, 2 ply Kid Lace (2 strands were run together throughout). Here is the back side.
Janet, the friend who invited me, took the same Tunisian Class I did. So we had someone model our finished shawls. They are so different.
Here is Janet’s. She made hers with Pagewood Farms Denali. I think I have that right. I could be wrong. Janet used a smaller size hook than I did. She was smart. I was an idiot and wanted something more airy. Isn’t this pretty. I love the colors.
Here is mine being modeled by one of the other ladies. You can read all about it here.
One pattern, two very different shawls.
I was told over the week, that Janet has gone to the dark side and is now knitting. I thought it was time to join her, so I have signed up for my BFF LYS knitting sock class. Lord have mercy!
