I did it in public!

Last Thursday, March 26, I attended the gathering of the Midwest Folk and Fiberfest Art Fair at Barnes and Noble bookstore.I had been a few months ago and the crowd is growing. Everyone is so friendly and fiber-fanatic. Every imaginable needle art is represented and the group is so interested in what everyone else is doing.

I am in the process of making a free-form crochet creation to celebrate National Crochet Month, playing along at NatCroMo on Ravelry. That's what I was working on. When I held it up to show, a knitter in the corner, exclaimed, "Them crocheters got better drugs than we do!" Oh, funny young man who just leanred to knit a hear ago!
See my creation on my post about National Crochet Month.

I offered to teach kids classes at the fair last year, but they didn't fly. While I was at the meeting, the organizer Carol approached me to submit crochet classes again this year, but for adults. She said she didn't have luck with any kids classes last year. It's understandiable: parents need a day out to themselves once in a while.
