Hi Mykele,
	FYI, we are looking for larger locations.  The current RSVP for the  
next meeting is rather large.  If everyone comes, we'll be in  
trouble.   As for the crochet, I've never seen a crocheted sock.  I'm  
very interested in seeing it.  Would you consider giving crochet  
lessons next year?


PS> Knitting rules.  Crochet.... not so much =)  Just kidding
