Crafty Night FEBRUARY 2011

 I cannot tell you how giddy I get each month as Crafty Night approaches. It's such a fun night to hang out with friends! This month we knitted. I only learned how to knit about a month ago. My friend Susan led the group, along with some help from a couple other well-experienced knitting gurus. It was a smaller group this month, but a PERFECT size for that extra attention we newbies seemed to need! 

 Everyone in the group went home with their own pair of knitting needles & a skein of yarn.
We had oodles of knitting books available to browse through too---such inspiration!

The girls & I made these yarn hearts for decorations. Tutorial found HERE.

This month everyone also went home with a felt fortune cookie. 
I handmade them. 
With love. 
Tutorial found HERE
(The girls' school teachers will be getting these for Valentine treats as well!)
We also ate amazing homemade soups & bread from the bakery next door. Not to mention my awesome pistachio torte.
And then, oh, we measured our heads for fun.
(Because we aspire to make great things. Like hats!)
And guess who had the biggest head of the bunch?
*sigh* It's my hair. I swear, I have BIG hair.
Crafty Night is the 2nd Tuesday of every month.
