The 1st of May and we’re still in lock-down. Although restrictions are being eased in some countries, this isn’t happening here in the UK and the government is maintaining its advice of Stay Home etc – you know the rest.
Our Zoom meetings are continuing and we have up to 15 ladies present, which is very nearly all of us. We’re all getting much more proficient. Today’s session was really good.
So, what news is there? Well, two of our ladies have become grandmothers to girls in the last week. Many congratulations to Krysia M and Perveen!
Everyone’s needles have been very busy:
Sheila has sewn two lovely Luna lapin rabbits using a kit she bought at a knitting and stitching show. Linda has knitted a beaded necklace. Perveen managed to knit a lovely hat for her grand-daughter’s journey home from hospital. Krysia M is knitting a bobbly baby blanket for the new baby – try saying that when you’re tired and have had a dronk or two! Agnes has knitted yet another blanket – this one for Nancy.
And Liz has surpassed us all with three new projects: a shawl and two rainbows. Phew!
