Our Stamping Lady - Surprise Visitor

  Carolyn has been working on this garter stitch scarf for a young person she knows. She specifically said this is for a young person, I would not wear this.  I'm not young anymore but I would love a fun scarf like this one.  It's made using yarn left over from other projects, using the garter stitch. To add whimsy she combines different types of yarn.
Jean is known for her beautiful afghans.  The other day, she ran into a friend she had not seen, who shared a reversible cables pattern. 

When working with patterns that consist of more than five rows, Jean finds it easier to write down all the rows on her books and to check them off as she completes them.

Janelle, a first time visitor concentrates and follows Jayne's directions to knit.  She looked very relaxed and enjoyed her session.  Carolyn and Anne sat closed by working on their knitting.  This was a good thing they told me to do after their workout at the YMCA. 

Ginger another first time visitor came well equipped with yarn as well as stamping supplies.  She found some new friends and shared with some of the ladies her love of stamping.

Ginger's stamping area drew the interest of some of the ladies.

Jan enjoyed very much her stamping experience. Jill followed her steps and also joined in the stamping fun.
