Christmas at TOG: cookies and crochet

Beautiful garlands of floppies

Deck the halls with boughs of floppies, fa la la la la la la la la la

As we’re well into December by now, we can talk about the C word all we want!  As is tradition by now, the final craftnight of the year will be a sugar-fuelled glitterfest where we try to finish Christmas gifts while raising our blood glucose levels.  By the time your insulin sorts that mess out, the crochet class on Saturday 14th will let you return to the scene of the sugarcrime and see what you recall.

Sugar craftnight kicks off from about 6:30pm in TOG on Tuesday December 10th.  All are welcome, and all sorts of tasty treats are welcome too! There’ll be hot chocolate to wash down the Christmas cookies, and I’ll have some spare felt and sparkles for anyone who’d rather build decorations than destroy their pancreas (of course you can do both).  Coordination of baking will happen through the craft mailing list (anyone can join the list and get regular reminders of craftnights during the year). As with all craftnights, you can just pop down on the night.  Our first craftnight of 2014 will be on January 7th.

Beautiful baubles to hang on your Christmas tree (or to give to someone to hang on their tree)

There will be a crochet bauble workshop run on the afternoon of Saturday December 14th from 2:30pm till about 4:30pm. Participants don’t need any prior experience at crochet, and will still make a pretty netted bauble for the tree.  The class will cost €7 including materials (or €2 for members for the materials).  Sign-up form for the class after the break.
