Canberra :: 29 May :: Crochet

Hellooo-hoo Canberra owls!!

Our next meet is very nearly upon us – next Saturday the 29th of May!!!
Due to popular request, this month’s theme is crochet!



Whether you’re a newbie, or an old….ahem, experienced hand with the hook, it will be lovely to get together and catch up.
If you are new to the hook, have a look at some of the vast wealth of online resources, such as this or this. There are even videos like this, if you want to get a flying start.

Even though Prefect Michelle can’t be with us this month, she’s offered to write us up some instructions for a ripple rug, and we’ll bring along some books and other resources for granny squares (who doesn’t love a granny?).



All you need to bring is some yarn and an appropriately sized crochet hook.
If you’re a total beginner, 8ply yarn and a 4mm hook should do it!
You can get a hook from a yarn store, Lincraft or Spotlight, or even BigW - if you’re having trouble or need more info on supplies, let us know!

As usual, please RSVP in the comments - it would be great if you could let us know if you’re a total beginner or an old hooker (awww, come on, I've got to get one crass joke in there!!).



Of course it’s the usual deal with the venue - $6 to cover the room hire, and bring a plate to share for afternoon tea if you feel so inclined. We’ll bring the tea and coffee and get there early to put the heaters on!

See you on Saturday!

xo George, Naomi, Michelle & Bron =)

I'll be there too. Looking forward to it.

Melissa said...

I'm a complete beginner. Never a stitch of crochet has passed through my hands. Looking forward to it though, as I feel I've missed out on something in life :-)

Michelle said...

So sorry I'll miss it! I will do a pattern up for you for a ripple rug, but I'll also give the other prefects some books you can look at - they are really lovely and will give you heaps of inspiration!

Have fun!

Anonymous George here...I'll be there too! I can manage the basics, and I'll bring along some spare hooks and bits and bobs of yarn. And I've got lots of books from Michelle.

Hi, I'll be there too. I'm glad I can make it this time, as I've missed the last two.

I'm a complete novice, but bought a hook and yarn today :)

Would it be too cheesy to say that I'm a card carrying hooker and happy to be there and help out where I can? Or should I just say see you Saturday?

Heather said...

I'll be there - possibly with both kids (eek!). I learnt the basics as a kid but not done much since.

Joanne said...

I will be there too- can't wait to have a look at the ripple rug pattern.

I'm planning on coming, if that's ok! (Gnomeangel's been bragging about how great you all are...)
I can fumble through the basics of crochet...

Jo said...

I'll be there - new to hooking. have managed a few granny squares so far.

gnomeangel said...

I'm a "beginner" - looking forward to learning to ripple. Woo hoo.

Can't wait to see you all!!!

I'll be there, but I'll have to leave early. I'm new to crochet and super excited to learn.

Bother. Guess I should read the emails more carefully. See you next month... I'm totally bringing my new hook & wool.
