Spring Time Colors

Spring time colors are all around us and are also seen in the yarn colors being used. Jill’s pretty manicured hands even matched the scarf she is working on. She found this fluffy yarn at Hobby Lobby on special for $1.99 a skein.

The crocheted and knitted bags which will be sold during our upcoming book sale have started coming in. Phyllis shared how she kept running out of yarn, so she used three different colors in this one she is modeling. She found this pattern in the Knit Simple magazine.

Nancy's crocheted bag is also very colorful and with lots of room.

Nancy found a large skein of Sugan 'N Cream cotton yarn which she has been using to make another bag. She wants to make sure she won't run out of yarn.

Pat's shawl for her daughter turned out very pretty. She said her daughter thought it was too lacy and delicate. She made another one for her to suit her style. I'm sure someone else will love this one.
The stripes appear on this beautiful sweater as Delores knits. This yarn was pricey she reports, over $12.00 a skein so the completed sweater will cost around $50.00.
This bunny cake made by Shelia was enjoyed by all those present. He matches all the pretty colors I saw during this meeting.
