Had a marvelous time yesterday. In the morning we started with a pattern from Michaels for a scarf and hat. The scarf is actually quite simple ... all chain 1 and single crochets ... the pattern looks really nice and is warm. Its a great way to start off practicing crocheting, so much so that my friend and I had our afternoon friend work with the same pattern. We both are also doing it ... I'm using left over yarn from my wool eater blanket and doing the scarf size (need sunglasse for this orange color) and my friend made the pattern wider and will be making a baby blanket in the prettiest blue.

Actually I am going to use up all the yarn left over from the wool eater by making the scarf size strips out of each skein and then join them for a lapghan. Should be a cheerful little ghan don't you think?

Oh, and let me tell you about the meatball soup we had ... ohhhhh, it too was marvelous. Such a hostess, certainly knows how to make a body feel at home and what a cook! It was such a nice day, a really blessed day. Sitting with hook in hand and enjoying the company of such wonderful people ... all day long. Can't ask for more.


  1. Glad you had such a nice time, Gloria! Sounds like fun! :D

  2. oh my goodness i love that bright colorful afghan! is there a pattern for that online? i'd love to give it a try!
