|Through Facebook I have become aquainted with many old friends.|
I found a friend that I used to go to church with and she saw that
I was interested in crocheting and told me that she teaches a
crochet class at the Senior Center here in my town!
|Last week I went for the first time.|
My BFF, Vicki met me there.
It last about 2 hours and there were many ladies there
crocheting many different things.
|I didn't take pictures of the women because I didn't have permission |
but I did ask if I could take pics of their projects.
|I noticed that several had these little flower looking items.|
I had no idea that they were chrysanthemum dish cloths!
And just as I was doing this post a sweet blogging sister
sent me this Link!
She had no idea that I was posting tonight about this!
|Another Chrysanthemum dish cloth!|
|This lady was making her grandson a little hat!|
This is his favorite colors.
|Look how cute!!!|
|And here she is making the tassel to go on top!|
|Here is a dish cloth that someone had just started!|
Polly said that it would be ok to use any yarn but
she said that cotton would be the best.
|This is what Vicki did in the class.|
She had us make a chain and then a single crochet..
Isn't it pretty?
|This is what I did. |
I notice it getting wider as I go.
The teacher asked me if I would like to make a scarf
and I said "Yes!"
So everytime I rode in the car since last week, I crocheted.
I even crochet on the way to church!
I love it!
|Then I decided that I wanted fringe on it so I went to You Tube|
and found out how to do it.
|I don't know how good I did this but I can't wait until|
my teacher sees it this week when I go back to the class.
She gave us instructions on paper to take home with us
to learn more.
|Putting on the fringe was easy. |
Actually this whole scarf was easy.
I can tell that I got wider toward the other end.
|So here is my finished scarf!|
It may not be perfect but I love it!
Thank you Polly!
I had so much fun and can't wait until the next class.
This scarf will go in my "Christmas Through The Year" stash that I am working on with Allie!
It will also go in my OPAM folder at the top of the page as a finished project.
The hosts for the OPAM are Peg & Kris!
TODAY I AM THANKFUL FOR......
someone that would take the time to teach crochet to so many women!
