2013 Heart to Hand Summer Knit/Crochet-A-Long
Join me for a summer knit/crochet-a-long.  We will be working on a baby blanket by Purl Bee called “The New Super Easy Baby Blanket”.  This pattern is actually a knit pattern but can be easily adapted for crocheters.   Here’s the Ravelry link: http://www.ravelry.co... .  Finished blankets will be donated.  If you would like to participate, blankets are due to me by August 31st.

*Just a reminder, no wool or wool blend yarn.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
