Virtual Friday 27

Ten of us Zoomed today, the 18th of September. We zoom in much the same way as when we meet face to face: some arrive early, some late, some leave early, others stay until the end…. we are time-fluid 🙂

Unlike F2F meetings, we can join in on Zoom from far and wide so being away on holiday is no longer a valid excuse for missing a meeting. We’ve had members joining in from Yorkshire, Lancashire, Wales and even Spain. I’m waiting for someone to go on holiday to Australia…….

So, what have we been up to since last week?

  • May has fashioned herself a knitting sheath or ‘bag on a belt to support knitting needle’ much like these written about here
  • Sheila is shortening a waistcoat she knitted for one of her daughters
  • Perveen has been knitting more balls for her granddaughters
  • Pam received a beautiful thank you card from Aimee for the cardigan she’d knitted for her
  • Liz is crocheting a shawl out of a self-striping yarn
  • Agnes has been swimming in the sea
  • Linda’s hair had got so long that she was in danger of knitting with it so she left early for an appointment at the hairdresser
  • I’ve been making hats on my latest toy – a knitting loom

We compared the various restrictions currently in place. Although we all live close to each other, we are in three different boroughs. While Stockport is now covered by the rule of six, introduced last week, whereby households can have up to 6 visitors, Tameside and Manchester’s restrictions haven’t eased and residents are still unable to have any visitors in the home or even in the garden. Which begs the question: can a Manchester resident visit someone in Stockport? Answers on a postcard please.

Last week, Sheila showed us a lovely baby cardigan she’d knitted.

Here’s the link to the pattern on Ravelry. It’s called Strawberry Pink Sideways Cardigan and Hat and is ideal for a quick baby knit.
