Here are this month's homemade dish winners....
Lil fed our sassy side with her deviled eggs. Delicious!
Kathy treated us to something sweet with her 7 Layer Bars. So scrumptious!
Next was Jennifer. She indulged our sophisticated side with Broccoli Parmesan Dip. (No, we didn't get her gift certificate in the picture. She's our photographer and therefore, pictures OF her are not nearly as good.
After trying out all of the tasty Valentine's treats, we jumped into the arms of our true love: YARN!
Sue kicked off the show and tell with her Windschief Hat in Malabrigo Rios.
She also brought Ritalin Cowl made from Malabrigo Silky Merino. (So very soft!)
Breaking the Malabrigo trend, Sue also brought in Honeycomb Cowl in Zauberball Crazy and Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn. Lovely, lovely projects, Sue! Lovely smile, as well!
Next up was Janet. She used Malabrigo Nube roving to spin this gorgeous yarn (if I read the notes correctly, S spun, 2 plyed). Can't wait to see what she creates with it!
Here is Rosalie Wrap, a pattern designed by one of our teachers, April Garwood. April had this pattern published in Interweave Crochet (Summer '14) using Mini Mochi. So elegant! (April recently taught a class for us explaining tunisian crochet entrelac. She's so talented!)
Denise made these bootcuffs using the pattern Paved by Tincanknits. She used Malabrigo Rios in color Pearl Ten. So chic, Denise!
Now, Denise doesn't often have one project going at a time (do any of us?) so she brought more darling finished objects with her. These are Sox on the Beach using Regia Fluormania.
Denise's last project is a shawl she made out of Pashmina (Baroque Violet). So scrumptious!
Kathy made these socks from the Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns, Basic Sock Pattern. She used Opal Smile...which makes all of us smile. :)
She also used Frolicking Feet (in Lavendar Patch) to make Trillian. So gorgeous on you, Kathy!
Diann always has fun projects to share with us. This month, she made Waving Lace socks from Favorite Sock Patterns by Interweave Knits. The Heritage Paints Sock yarn looks fantastic in this pattern. Great job, Diann, as always!
Our last project show-and-tell of the evening was Seeds to Flowers, a ravelry pattern. Diann used Madeline Tosh Light in Log Cabin. Very pretty, Diann!
Unfortunately, the beads do not show very well so you'll have to take our word that they added a beautiful sparkle to the shawl!
Thank you all so much for coming out to spend Valentine's Day at GYC! We appreciate our wonderful--and very talented--customers!
