Getting the Word Out

Yesterdays Crochet, Coffee and Crochet chat was great! Six of us showed up for the morning session and had a lot of fun together.

Teach Yourself Visually Knitting and Crocheting
I got to leaf through the new book, Teach Yourself Visually Knitting and Crocheting and liked what it had to offer. I didn't adopt it -- yet! -- but I am thinking about it. Mostly because of my inexperience with my knitting. I did manage to knock out a scarf, and that brings me to our update on the 30 Scarves in 30 Days Challenge:

The current count is:
      1 scarf and two hats from Cris of Danbury
      1 scarf as posted by Robin Anderson (scarf to go to YMCA homeless shelter) along with 4 preemie hats for the NICU at University of MD hospital (Jaimie yarn) and 1 "Crochet for the Cure" (Lion Brand) scarf, the YWCA Homeless shelter
      1 scarf from Lori of Greenwich
      1 scarf from Ang W (scarf went to homeless shelter in St. Stephens)
      and I now have 13 done ....
that brings us to 18 of the 30 Scarves in 30 days Challenge.

 Also, check it out on the right: AOL has picked up on this Challenge and is helping to promote it. To see for yourself, go to AOL Keyword: Hobby and you'll see a link to me which leads to my original post on this challenge!

There are 10 days of this challenge left -- plenty of time for you to participate if you'd like. Any skill level can do it, from beginner to advanced, and it can be done in crochet or knit.

Just make a scarf and pick a charity to donate it to. Send me an email, or leave me a comment here to get added to our growing list. Together, we CAN make a difference! :)

That's awesome!

Thanks for the book might help a friend of mine who is trying to learn how to crochet, and I can't seem to get her to stop doing a few things that she shouldn't
