On a Cold January Afternoon

I spoke to Rita first and she was working on something different. She's a very good seamstress and has designed a gown she will wear during the Red Hat Society Convention which takes place this year in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Jill and Jan have a friend in common and they both worked on what they will give her for her upcoming birthday in February. Their friend is a flute player in the Charlotte Symphony.

Phyllis brought her sister Delores who is trying to start a prayer shawl group in her church. She was glad she came and encouraged to begin this new venture. We hope she comes back.

Speaking of shawls, I saw three other ladies working on shawls; Pat, Claire and Jill. Claire shared with me she had looked everywhere how to do a half double crochet and had not been successful.

This video demonstrates clearly how to do the half double crochet.

Our refreshment table was graced by a snowman unlike any other I've seen. The carrot nose was knitted by Shelia.

Donna brought her knitted market bags and shared her patterns.
