big crafting news!

The big crafting news is that Shanti finished her amazing crochet 7" record blanket last night. It is a 1:1 scale so it ended up as 7 feet across! This thing took her forever and it is an amazing accomplishment. Even more exciting is that she told me that I'm next on her list. I'm getting a granny square blanket! I am so blessed!!

The weekly Arts & Drafts meeting continues (after more than 2 years) to be a highlight of my week. I hear that from a lot of other people too. I would never have been able to make it through the last 6+ months without the companionship and support of my Thursday knitters (and crocheters and needlepointers et al).

Last night Joey & I had a knitting lesson. He is a natural (which doesn't surprise me since he is so talented in other areas that require hand/eye coordination. And that isn't a dirty joke. Joey is an incredibly talented artist. More info here.)

Trey Jones took some lovely photos last night. The full set is here.
