Jane's Hooked on Crochet

A place to write about my crocheting, things I'm learning, book reviews, ideas, projects in mind, works in progress, patterns, photos, fair entries, whatever...

CGOA Chapter News

The library meeting room where we normally hold our meeting was not available last night, so we decided it would be a good time for a field trip. We scheduled our meeting for the local yarn shop, " Knitters Dream". Then hoped that the weather would cooperate. Last week's snow/freezing rain/sleet/snow had ended, roads are finally cleared (mostly) and the temperatures are zooming all the way up to the high 40's. Here is PA we're thinking spring. So we had a fairly nice evening for the drive up the mountain to this shop.
We had 7 ladies get together for an evening of shopping, talking, crocheting, and hot beverages, thanks to Linda, the owner. The informal business was discussed around a table in the "sale room" where I was tempted by pretty fibers while trying to cover the business. Margie asked the newcomers about their favorite things to crochet, favorite fibers, etc. Faith showed us her latest hat, and talked about some of the other designs she's done. Kathleen showed us the hat she made on her own, after Faith and I helped her start one on Tuesday when we gathered at Borders. Margie finished up another purse from the Bagsmith, and told us of a new design they have out. We decided she needs to bring one of those to show us at the next meeting. We decided on a name for the Chapter - Those (Y)arn Crocheters. So the application is complete and will be mailed today or tomorrow. Tentatively scheduled the March meeting to be planning for next year's Gathering of the Guild.

Thanks again to Linda, owner of Knitters Dream in Harrisburg for allowing us to meet in her shop, and being a gracious hostess. We had a great time, and did a stash enhancement!
