Crochet? And a Fun Sounding Swap

First, a few of you have mentioned wanting to learn some crochet. My gram, Jennie May, taught me on a car ride from CT to OH when I was 19. I still remember a whole lot of what Jennie May showed me, and I'll be glad to share with anyone who's interested. Just let me know who wants a lesson, and we'll figure out a good time. Maybe a Crafty Friday in April?

Also, check out this swap that the scissors squad put on. Doesn't that sound like fun? Maybe we can set something up for the October Taos trip--I know there are people from all over coming to join us there...we should think about an inter-SnB swap.

I'm rambling. See you all on Tuesday! xx

This is a repeat

I wanted to say a very heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone at last night's meeting...

Thanks to all of you WONDERFUL WOMEN, you turned one of the worst days I have had in a long time into one of the BEST!!! I cannot begin to express the appreciation I have for each and every one of you and how blessed I truly feel to have the opportunity to have had all of you in my life!!! The birthday cake was unexpected and the card is now hanging up in my cube to remind me of all of the love and support I was lucky enough to get from you last night :-) Yes, tears still come to my eyes today remembering how ALL of you helped me out...

You all gave me a wonderful gift last night by just being there and experiencing your company... I hope that someday I can pay each and every one of you back!!!!

I know I sent this through the Yahoo group today, but I wanted to post this in case there are folks from last night who do not recieve email through the group... You are all the greatest group of women!!!!! Thank you again for everything!!!

Scraps of Sock Yarn wanted

While looking on Lolly's blog to see what was doing re: Project Spectrum, I came across Major Knitter's contest. She's collecting scraps of extra sock yarn to use to make knit notes (they're cute!). She'll donate half of the proceeds from selling the cards to the Jackson Recovery Centers in Iowa, which her parents started as a teen rehab center.

I'm going to send a few skeins of Knitpicks landscape that are gathering dust (I only have one of the different colorways...not enough to make a pair of socks!).

Each ball--at least 2 yards--enters the sender (one ball, one entry--get the picture?) into a contest for nifty prizes. Here's my offer: if you have scraps of sock yarn you want to send, put them in a ziplock baggy with your contact information (name, email, blog addy). Bring them to me on Tuesday at SnB, and I'll send one package over to her on Wednesday morning.

Could charitable knitting get any easier?
