    Hi Angela

    Yep there will be a bunch of crocheters there on the night that can help you out. We would totally recommend having a go at lessons 1-3 from Pips tutorial http://meetmeatmikes.blogspot.com.au/p/granny-squares-101.html so you get a feel for holding the yarn (really helps with crocheting) and can do a chain stitch. That would give you a great foundation to learn some basic stitches on the night.
    Look forward to meeting you on Thursday!

    I was very much looking forward to coming along last night, until I was sent home from work sick and slept right through the meet. I hope you all had a lovely time and I'll look forward to the next meet. Casey.
