'Crochet keeps our hands busy so our minds can rest. It is a gift to help quiet the world around us, if even for a moment. To create -- and think of those we create for --is a quiet prayer of hope, love and dreams all wrapped up in a hook, a book and a ball of yarn. Author Anonymous. Thanks Cynthia.

Two magazines in one weekend!

Hi Everyone!

I'm back with more good news! Yesterday our Group were lucky enough to be featured in two magazines! I posted yesterday about 'Inside Crochet' so please go back a post and have a read and also we were featured in 'Simply Knitting!'.  Both magazines were fantastic write ups for our Group and I do hope we can get more interest from them.

Today I would like to show you the article featured in 'Simply Knitting' Issue 87.  If you click on the photo it will take you to Flickr and you will be able to enlarge the artictle. I am so grateful to both 'Inside Crochet' and 'Simply Knitting' for wonderful articles about us.  I do hope the articles will generate more Squares for our Group and especially our Olympic Blanket Challenge for next year.

'Simply Knitting' Issue 87 December.

Two magazines in one day! Wow! Congratulations Ladies!!!!

There is always quite a bit going on over on our Ravelry SIBOL Group. Why not pop over? Perhaps you would like to take part in our SIBOL Swaps? Everyone are most welcome. We have lively topic board threads and everyone is welcome to join in the fun over there! We discuss anything from new Blankets to the latest TV news!

See you over there!

Thanks 'Inside Crochet' and thanks also to 'Simply Knitting'.
Thanks everyone for visiting SIBOL today!
