Hooray it's Friday.

We had our first knit and knatter meeting of 2009 last night. I just love going to the pub to go knitting - it's a chance to knit and be proud. We always get lots of comments, although the locals are getting used to us after seven months. The darts team meet upstairs on the same night, so they usually pass a humourous comment on the way out for a smoke. Welcome to Sonja and Jackie, it was lovely to meet you. Sonja has been struggeling with a pattern from Simply Knitting, but toghether we were able to conquer the pattern!!

We meet once a month at the Greyhound Pub in Brackley from 7.30 onwards. Next time on the 26th of Feb.

See you then!

Happy New Year

Well a happy new year to you all! (A bit late I know, but still!)

I don't know about you, but I am still finishing off crafting projects which weren't done in time for Christmas. I have two pairs of pyjamas to sew (My lovely daughters received several meters of fabric wrapped up) and a jumper for my elder daughters birthday.

One pair of PJ's have been cut out and the jumper cast on. So hopefully should all be done in a week (too ambitious?) I will post pictures of my progress.

Once those things are done, then I am into getting ready for the the next outing for The Pin Money Craft Co-operative Craft faire!! I am thinking kits. Socks for sure, maybe hotwater bottle covers, (I am seeing them everywhere at the moment) and possibly felting kits also.

Well right now, I am off to watch a film with Harry and get the knitting needles working.
