    Thanks so much for organizing this Amy. It was so great to get to see all of you! I met some really nice women on the train on the way home and I told them they should start going to PnP. HA!

    Have a Happy Halloween!

    Amy, thanks for doing such a great job of organizing, as always, and for helping me with the crochet. I think I almost get it! I had a wonderful time; got some fun stuff even if it wasn't yarn!
