Today’s workshop was making Claire’s turkeys, pumpkin basket or the magic potholder.  There were some very cute pumpkins that left with other things in progress.
 
We all enjoyed the trunk show at the Fiber Gallery of the current issue of Interweave Crochet magazine fashions.  What a difference seeing them in person.  The yarn colors were amazing.  The Fiber Gallery did carry all the yarns featured in the magazine.
