March 2008 Meeting
The meeting was held on March
30, 2008 at A New Yarn. In attendance were: Alison MacCarthy, Carmella Peterson,
Sherry Evard, Mary Ferrari, Justine Ozaki, Linda Yaw, Clair Cronklton,
Jean Becker and guest, Leni Lopez.
There was talk about the August pot luck
on Vashon where Jean will be hosting a workshop on hairpin lace and Jean brought samples of her hairpin lace projects.
Prior to the workshop, everyone was given
homework. Josie began the workshop at the point where the heel flap begins and walked everyone through the heel shaping
A pattern was distributed and those who
did not have time to complete the homework began the sock from the cuff, following the pattern.
Everyone seemed delighted to be able
to create socks. Alison showed everyone the socks she'd done from the toe up.
brought with her some leaflets she'd gotten from Annie's Attic for basic socks and slippers and everyone seemed equally pleased
to know that there are more patterns available for socks. Josie recommended a book titled Crochet Socks by Janet
Reifelt and Mary Jane Wood. Justine also referred to a sock pattern from the most recent Crochet
magazine that contained a beautiful pair of socks done in tapestry crochet.
The workshop ended with just about everyone
well on their way to a pair of socks.
The next meeting will be held on April
27, 2008 during which Clair will host a workshop on crocheting with recycled plastic grocery bags.
