New changes for the last year in our current library building (2016).
Next meeting will be Tuesday, June 7, 2016 in the large meeting room at Joplin Public Library, 5:30pm – 8:00pm or any part of that time you can make it.
We will be meeting the 1st Tuesday of every month.
This year, for those that want to participate we are doing a mystery crochet afghan. We started at our January meeting. The first month was 20 granny square blocks. The remaining months will be adding a new row or two and then assembling the afghan towards the end of this year. Each meeting approximately at 6pm I will demo the stitch/row or rows and give everyone time to work on their blocks and everyone will receive the handout instructions for that month.
For the June meeting the mystery crochet afghan will be a lot more work so it will be the beginning of instructions for 2 months of work. So even though the instructions seem like it will be a lot of work. You will have 2 full months to complete it. I know it can be down in 3 weeks but it’s difficult to do in that time frame and still work a full time job. 2 months will be a lot more reasonable. It will be nice to see if anyone can have these instructions mostly done by July.
In November it is possible to have completed the afghan. Just in time for a Christmas gift to someone in 2016. If you are interested in some color variations or other info about it go to our blog post –
The only hint I am giving is that it is somewhat 3D when you are done.
For those participating in the mystery afghan, they will need to bring their B, C and D colors for this months 2 rows.
You are always welcome to BYOP (Bring Your Own Project) that you are working on. Plus bring any of your projects you would like to for Show n Tell.
Each month I will edit this post to show the next meeting.
