An item to check off the bucket list

I am a graphic designer who never had the courage to become a fiber artist. I back-burnered my interest in weaving, until now. I am a member of a spinning and weaving guild, having gone to meetings for almost a year I finally decided it was time to get started. I bought myself an Ashford Knitters Loom on the recommendation of a guild member and I am on my way. I am so excited to learn how to make lush and beautiful fabric. This is my first attempt, much to learn and a long way to go, but I will report in from time to time on my progress.

NYC Crochet Guild meeting - November

Last night I attended the crochet guild meeting in Manhattan, it was a packed house. Jack from Lion Brand Yarns was there showing, among other things, the new Martha Stewart line of yarns. VERY NICE. Saw a lot of natural fiber yarns in yummy colors, making me want to knit knit knit! Ok, so I don't need a whole lot of inspiration.... but wow. a good time was had by all.

A highlight of the evening was the show and tell, take a look at these ANGRY BIRDS crochet hats. When I got home I googled the subject and found this great youtube video
