ACK Thursday December 16, 2010

Hello Everyone!

Tomorrow, we will be meeting at Igloo Cafe on 31st Street underneath the N/Q Train at Ditmars Blvd. We will meet at 8pm, and order our food by 8:30pm. Please let me know if you will be attending by 5:00pm tomorrow if you will be joining us.

If I do not see you tomorrow, I hope you have a good Holiday if you celebrate it, and a very Happy and Prosperous New Year!!

See you in 2011!!
Hello Everyone!

This week we are cancelling ACK, so to speak. We will not be meeting in Astoria on Thursday. Instead, we will meet at the Smiley's Hotel Yarn Sale on Thursday December 2, 2010 at 6:15pm (I will be arriving at approximately 6:30pm), or get there earlier if you like, and take your time shopping! The Yarn Sale will be at the Holiday Inn located on 57th Street between 9th and 10th Avenues. After we finish emptying out our wallets, we will drag our garbage bags full of yarn to a nearby diner and eat together.

Please let me know by 5pm on Thursday December 2, if you will be joining us for the sale. This way I know who to expect and look for at the sale.

The Smiley's Hotel Yarn Sale is a big deal for knitters and crocheters in the NYC area. They have large bags of novelty and good quality yarn for very good deals (like 10 balls of yarn in one bag, for $20-30, for example). Think, sweater and blanket / afghan projects. :) See the Smiley's page for more information:

Due to the holidays, ACK will only be meeting two more times in 2010!! Where has the year gone!?!??! Get out your projects that you want to complete as gifts, or get out that project that has been sitting around for too long, and you want to finish before the year is up!

December 9, 2010 at 8pm -- Lower Level of the Beer Garden at 24th Avenue

December 16, 2010 at 8pm -- Igloo Cafe near Ditmars Blvd.

I really enjoy being part of this group, and spending time with you all. We all learn so much from each other, and I look forward to it every week. Thank You!
If I do not see you, I hope you have a great month, and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!! SEE YOU ALL SOON!!

ACK November 18, 2010 at 8pm

Hello Everyone!!

I hope everyone is well. Please join us tomorrow, November 18, 2010 at 8pm at Igloo for another night of ACK. Please let me know by 5:30pm on Thursday if you will be joining us, that way I can assure enough seating.

So, bring your latest unfinished project, unfinished holiday gift, or gift for yourself, and let's get working on our projects! Not only is it a good time to get your holiday gifts done, it's also a good time to finish most or all of the project you've had sitting around all year, and vowed to get done. Getting together with other knitters and crocheters is a big motivation, and everyone is willing to help each other out.

And of course! The week after Thanksgiving means-- THE SMILEYS MANHATTAN YARN SALE RIOT EXTRAVAGANZA! (it's the annual Smileys Hotel Yarn Sale). The sale begins on November 30, ends on Saturday Dec 4. It is going to be held at the Holiday Inn at 57th Street betw 9th and 10th Ave. Every year, I try to get a couple of other ACK members to join me in the yarn shopping. I honestly feel that you need to go with someone--- you need someone to help you choose which yarns you are going to buy, which ones you should leave behind, and which ones you should indulge in....;) This yarn sale is actually very good, as they tend to have big bags of yarn at a very affordable price, along with yarns that are new and unique.

I was thinking about "cancelling" ACK on Thurs Dec 2, and just meeting up at the Smileys Yarn sale, and possibly, grabbing some food after our yarn purchases. But we can talk about this tomorrow.

If I do not see you tomorrow, I hope that you have a happy, and safe Thanksgiving!

ACK November 11, 2010 at 8pm

Hello Everyone!

Bring your latest knitting and crochet projects, and let's finish them before the holiday season!! A couple of my co-workers wanted me to make them some Calorimetry's.... This is a great quick project to make if you want to make a quick gift for the holidays.

Here's the Pattern:
