Fall Fiber Plans; Gold Coast Huggers cap again!

The Third Annual Florida Fiber-In is coming up - September 15- 17, in Orlando. I think I'll pass this year, since I'll be spending a lot of my yarn budget on a yarn cruise in November! Several of the Betties will be taking a 3 day cruise with Tropical Yarns. There are probably a few places left on board, so check into it if the thought of yarn on the open sea appeals to you! (let's be honest. When does yarn NOT appeal to me?)

In other news, the Gold Coast Huggers made a very special delivery to Sylvester Cancer Center in Miami. Longtime friend of both the Betties and the Huggers, "Chasey", a patient there herself, took our knitted caps to the center for us. The Gold Coast Huggers have also gotten some generous donations lately, read all about it on their blog.
