We will be meeting indoors from 10th September 2021 but not in the pavilion. For a variety of reasons, the pavilion isn't ideal so we're moving to Broadstone Mill, Reddish, SK5 7DL. To The Terrace Tea Room to be precise, which is the first floor café. Same day and same time. Refreshments can be purchased … Continue reading Stop press! Change of venue

What joy! We were able to meet face to face for the first time since March 2020. The beautiful weather meant that outdoor meetings were an absolute delight. Sitting in our lovely park, knitting, chatting, listening to the birds, engaging with passers-by, watching children at play.......fabulous! The weather was great on the 2nd, 9th, 16th … Continue reading July – no longer virtual!
To be honest, I've become lazy and have decided that as we don't do much when we have our meetings, I may as well just do a monthly 'report'. This has the advantage of there being just the one post to read but also I'll probably forget a few things so the post won't be … Continue reading Virtual June
You can see I'm getting lazy and combining weeks again. I can't offer any excuses I'm afraid. Someone will no doubt come up with a name for this but, for now, I'll call it Covid Inertia or maybe Pandemic Apathy. I was going to do three weeks' worth in one post and then realised that … Continue reading Virtual Fridays – 58 to 61
Our first official meeting of 2021 was on the 8th of January, although we did have a little ad hoc meeting on New Year's Day. So, once again, here's wishing everyone a Happy New Year! We barely had time to get used to tier 4 before lockdown 3 was announced. Here are the rules, applicable … Continue reading Virtual Friday 42
Yes, 9 years ago, on the Friday preceding the August Bank Holiday, the Knitting Friends met for the very first time. There were seven of us at that first meeting. We all knew each other from meeting on Tuesday evenings in The Plough pub in Heaton Moor. I saw that there might be a need … Continue reading Virtual Friday 24 and it’s an anniversary
29th May....... and we're still zooming.... There were 14 of us on Friday, which is excellent. We're a small group but have large hearts. A lot of charity knitting has been going on: 14 teddies! We spent quite a long time just chatting and showing various bits and pieces of knitting then we had 'Corona … Continue reading Virtual Friday 11
22nd May and some bad news to report. Photo posted on FB by Heatons & Reddish GMP This damage was done to the pavilion some time during last week-end. Kids climb onto the roof every so often and this time instead of being satisfied with that achievement, they've gone one step further and decided to … Continue reading Virtual Friday 10
This is the first Friday that we have had to cancel our knitting group because of Coronavirus (COVID-19). So, it'll have to be a virtual group from now until further notice. I hope everyone's ok and not suffering from either virus related ills or the strain of isolation. Maybe you're like one of our ladies … Continue reading Virtual Friday – 1
I decided, today, and yes I know it's a bit late in the day seeing as we're already in February, that one of my resolutions for 2020 would be to post something on here at least once a month. With that intention I sat myself down to write something 'interesting' and paled at the realisation … Continue reading Where did the last few months go?
