Join Us Oct 2017 – Nya Mosaic Blanket

Time & Place

Sunday, Oct 29, 2017, 12:30-3:30pm – new time & format
Social time and show & tell from 12:30-1:30pm at Panera, Mass Ave., Lexington, MA
Business News & Program from 1:30-3:30pm
Cary Memorial Library, Lexington, MA

New Meeting Format – 12:30-1:30pm Social Time before the Program

The new meeting format worked well in September and we’re continuing with that format for October. We’ll be meeting an hour early at Panera down the street (walking distance) from the library. This will give us a chance to socialize and look at each other’s projects without cutting into our meeting and program time. It’s not mandatory to come to both parts of the meeting. It will be great to see you however you choose to participate.

Program – Nya Mosaic Blanket – 1:30-3:30pm at the Library

We’ll be meeting from 1:30-3:30pm as we usually do at Cary Memorial Library in Lexington, MA.

We’re kicking off our Year of Colorwork! Karen has challenged us to swatch some mosaic crochet and bring in questions/insights to share. The pattern Karen suggests swatching is “Nya Mosaic Blanket” by Tatsiana Kupryianchyk, better known as Lilla Bjorn. There is a free version of the pattern with photo tutorials on her blog. Mary has some suggestions on the yahoo group on various ways to do the colorwork.

If you haven’t already picked up a hook, there’s still time! What if you don’t have time to swatch? Come anyway! Learn from the discussion and/or contribute from past experience.

Please bring:
  • Your swatch from the Nya Mosaic Blanket (optional)
  • Thoughts/questions that popped up while working on the swatch (or other mosaic crochet)
Charity

Feel free to bring any charity items for donation.

RSVP

All are welcome. RSVP to fishnetcrocheters@gmail.com if you plan to attend. Please do not call the restaurant or the library.
