Fishnets had some fun with Halloween this year, with a few crochet costumes appearing, including
The Black Widow:
A Spider Web:
And the Casual Friday Witch:
Charity items for the fall/winter project were collected. And our charity afghan, made from our Stitch of the Month squares was brought to completion by our own Marcia L.
All charity items, including this afghan, are being donated to victims of domestic violence.
Crocheters gathered back at the library for another round of fall and winter meetings. Stitch for the month is the Crazy Stitch.
Fishnet Crocheters were fortunate to travel to Salem, MA for their June meeting where they were hosted by the Seed Stitch Fine Yarn shop.
Crocheters brought books for the shop owner to review and consider as one of her shop offerings.
We were joined by the shop’s crochet teacher for a time of sharing and crocheting.
After show and tell, Fishnets got down to work on their new stitch: Stacked clusters
As usual, Fishnets were treated to a wonderful display of Show and Tell, including the start of this fun picture-ghan by Lisa.
May’s stitch was the cross stitch. Fishnet Crocheter Karen shared several variations with us, and then we got down to work on our squares.
In addition to working on the month’s stitch, Fishnets stuffed newly crocheted totes with a myriad of toiletries as part of our spring charity project.
More finished squares were collected:
Fishnets were led in a lesson on Granny squares and their variations:
In addition to our usual crocheting time, Fishnet Crocheters showed off their other talents and interests, including:
Scrap booking and card making:
Stained glass creations:
We have a new lobster bell to bring the meeting to order! Moss Stitch squares were collected, and the Star Stitch was begun!
Fishnets hosted the director of the Creative Arts Exhibits at the Eastern States to learn about entering their creations in the fair for September 2010. Following our discussion, we began work on our first stitch of the year, the Moss Stitch.
