I arrived in Columbus, Ohio early Saturday morning, just in time for Robyn Chachula's class "Beyond the afghan". It was a great class and a good way to start the conference. Robyn talked about symbol diagrams and how to read them. These diagrams are the basis for her new book Blueprint Crochet, which you can link to on the right of the blog page. She covered points I was anxious to hear about making half motifs, and how to join them so that you can't tell where one ends and the other begins. Robyn and I actually live near each other, and she's so much fun. Hi Robyn!
