Cro(t)chety Old Ladies?

Not at all!  We are not old (not in our heads and some of us not even in age).  We are not crotchety, but we are crochet-y.  

Welcome to Crochet Club.  This takes place on the first Saturday morning of every month at my favourite shop, A Good Yarn, the fabbest knitting shop in the world. I vaguely supervise the proceedings, helping where I can and learning new stuff in the process.
 One of our ladies brought her lovely 15 yr old granddaughter to learn the art, opening her up to a  world of creating her own unique fashion accessories.  In the foreground you can see Dawn's pile of crocheted squares for her blanket.  They are taken from this book, which is a must for all crocheters of cushions and throws.

 Coffee, cake and chat - the three wonderful "C's"
 Samples and a happy sheep or two.  How I wish I'd made that glorious throw!
I did make this fun cardi for The Girl Genius, though, using up all my leftover bits of yarn.  It's certainly one of a kind.


  1. Don't forget the fourth wonderful 'C' - crochet of course!

    I love the cardi for The Girl Genius.

  2. The club looks like fun! And I love the little crochet card - fab x

  3. Sorry meant to say cardi - not card :)

  4. I think I am going to have to come and play. I really want to get better with my crochet this year and as for that blanket on the chair.....every week I think maybe it would slip in my bag and no-one would miss it ;)
