My life is full of fiber. Not to mention my bedroom, living room, dining room, and closets!

Due to the prospect of inclement weather, Grandma has cancelled Knit Night tonight.  Hope to see you next week.  We will be closing at 5:00 pm tonight.

Crochet Art by Pat Ahern: Here's the one with my brother, Ian and dog; I've been messing around with the composition. I had to put in the quarter-man on the left because it looked like my brother was punching the dog, which he would never do! I'm working on the background and grass today, which is good because I can leave the ends out. I need more floor! Also, that is smoke he's blowing out - my bro is not Zephyrus.

Keeping track of rows.
