Our meet-up here in Quezon City was a success, thanks to all who joined :)
It is rather difficult to schedule a meeting for several people with different job commitments. Also, not everyone lives near this city...one is from Makati, and one even had to commute from her home in Olongapo. Some other group members also wanted to attend, but unfortunately couldn't make it on the scheduled date.
The good thing is that there were 9 of us present :)
I met Fatima
for the first time. (She used to live in this city too...but she now lives in Bohol.). Some of the members I have already met before, like Catyanna
Of course when crocheters meetup there's lots of talk about yarns, projects, crochet tips, selling tips and other crafty stuff. We also exchanged gifts (mostly books and yarns)....
Here are the yarns that I brought home that day:
Wool...which can be used for felting projects. That's my WIP garter-stitch scarf worked by "knooking" technique...which Catyanna
introduced to us.
More wool and a mystery yarn in black ...
Cotton yarns which I got in exchange for my Anchor size 10 threads...
Sunset, 70% merino wool 30% soybean yarn, from Lotus yarns - a gift from Fatima :)
Abaca yarn from Bheng
...I immediately made shoes from this yarn, since I had a pair of torn shoes where I got a usable inner sole and outer sole.
More projects coming soon!
