Counterfeit Crochet "crochet-in" this week in Honolulu 

As part of the Find Art Festival, Stephanie Syjuco is holding "crochet-ins" at the Pegge Hopper Gallery in downtown Honolulu. The Counterfeit Crochet Project is an excellent example of craftivism, and ArchiPURLago and I (along with at least a few other Aloha Knitters) are planning to be at the Friday 5:00 - 8:00 PM crochet-in. I'm also hoping to make it over to the panel discussion on Thursday (5:00 - 6:30 PM, The ARTS at Marks Garage) after the sit-and-knit session at The Honolulu Museum of Arts Spalding House (2:00 - 4:00 PM). 

I've been looking at various handbags, and this one from the Tory Burch collection for Resort 2013 caught my eye:

God that bag is fab. (And I don't even like hot pink! Or fringe!) So how was workshop??

BTW, you will be proud of me. I made my first pompom last night with a template cut out from a Lucky Charms Box. :-) I am now ready to volunteer for pompom making at ArtSpree if you still need people.

I'm going to the Find Art Festival panel discussion tonight and hopefully the workshop tomorrow after work.
