Canberra Brown Owls - Crochet a granny square!

Photo by LidiaLuz

Our next Canberra Brown Owls meeting will be Saturday June 27 from 2 pm to 4.30 pm at Downer Community Centre. We will be learning how to crochet a granny square! Check out Bron's blog post for some more granny inspiration!

So bring along:
* Some 8 ply yarn in various colours that you like! It can be wool or acrylic, but wool (in my opinion) is a lot nicer to work with when you're starting out.
* 5 mm crochet hook, in either metal, wood or bamboo. Plastic can be a bit slippery to use.
* Your friendly smiles!
* Some yummy goodies to share, but only if you want!
* Show and tell from the last Brown Owls!

Take a look at these before you come. We will have a few Brown Owls helping out on the day with the crochet tuition.

Pip has put the instructions up online too - they are over here. Please print these out and bring them along - they will help you!

If you already know how to do a granny square, and want to do something a little different, check out this link for a flower brooch. You might like to try that instead.

Also don't forget to RSVP to this post. Looking forward to seeing you all again!

And for your diaries, our next meets will be:
Sun 26 July - English paper piecing
Sun 23 August
Sun 27 September
Sun 25 October
Sun 22 November
December to be announced!

I'm interested in coming, but I've never attended a brown owls meeting before. I couldn't find any info on becoming a Canberra member... could somebody enlighten me? :) Thanks

Boo, can't make this one either - at Mischief Maker High Tea. Would love to learn this though. Will put all dates in diary so no more clashes! J

Michelle said...

That is where I will be Jess. At least we can miss out together.
