I went to an after-hours Lion Brand Yarn Party - it was fun! Did you know that they have a storefront in NYC where they have free crochet classes, etc - if I ever head to New York, I want to check it out.
The party decor was super cute - see the table:
And here's an idea for yarn that doesn't involve crochet or knitting - love this - such craft potential!
Cindy from Skip to My Lou made all these cute flower clips - much cuter in person than my bad picture:
And I could not get over the cuteness of the cupcakes - seriously, check them out!!
The night consisted of learning to crochet cute flowers. I made a couple of headbands for my girls but of course didn't take any pictures of that (duh - this IS a craft blog - you would probably enjoy seeing the actual craft...) . Here's Cindy teaching me a tie on trick:
Big thanks to Skip to My Lou and Lion Brand Yarns for the fun night!!
Oh, I took these notes but haven't had time to look them up or decipher why I wrote them down - - so I guess I'll leave that up to you:
--Irish Crochet Shawl, Mother's Day Flower (I think these are patterns on the Lion Brand site that I want to make....)
--Crochet It Love It Wear It - book
--Drew Emborsky - The Crochet Dude
--Convertible Knitting Loom
