Canberra Owls crochet!

Yesterday some of Canberra's Brown Owls braved the wintry weather and got together for an afternoon dedicated to mastering the Granny Square.

Our Crocheter Extraordinaire shows us how its done

Hooray - Naomi's first granny square! Now on to the next!

And Emma (wearing her lovely new hand knitted cardi), also working on her first square:

It was Emma's last meeting with the Canberra Brown Owls - she's moving away soon =(
We'll miss you Emma!!! (And the lovely goodies you bake to bring along too!)
But we wish you all the best, and good luck with your move and new job!!

As well as having excellent help on hand, and Pip's handy dandy instructions from the Meet Me at Mike's book, we had a few other books with us too - our faves that we'd recommend if you're on a quest to conquer the granny were the Happy Hooker, and 200 Crochet Blocks.
If you have any other recommendations we'd love to hear! =)

And finally, a quick reminder that the next Canberra Brown Owls meeting will be Sunday 26 July - we'll be learning about English paper piecing (have a look at the fun the Sydney Owls had with this!!)
We'll email soon with all the details! =)

See you next time!!

Thanks for posting the photos Kuka! It was a fabulous afternoon, even though there was only a small group.

Aww shucks, I'm quite sad to go. Maybe I can be a Canberra Brown Owl by correspondence?

Twas indeed a lovely afternoon, but I'm now bitten by the granny square bug, well and truly!
