It's very likely that after restrictions end there will be many groups that just don't get back together again. Not so ours though! I might even consider adding a virtual meeting to the physical park meeting. With better internet access in the park we could combine the two 🙂 Mind you, in the light of … Continue reading Virtual Friday – 5

We had another well attended Zoom meeting today during which we exercised our grey matter with a short quiz. The rules were simple - you just needed to write your answers on paper at home - in private! There was no public naming and shaming or league position, which was just as well as I … Continue reading Virtual Friday – 4
I can guarantee that when we come out of this pandemic our knowledge of tech will have increased massively. On Friday at 11am, we had a fun-filled and exciting knitting group meeting on Zoom. Other meeting platforms are also available 🙂 I had tried it out the previous week as it was new to me … Continue reading Virtual Friday – 3
What did you do today? I hope you made yourself a drink, grabbed some cake or a biscuit and knitted something beautiful for a little while. I didn't do any of the above, not in the morning anyway; at 11am I got together with a few knitting friends. Before anyone calls the authorities, this was … Continue reading Virtual Friday – 2
......what do you do? This Covid-19 lockdown has given many of us a lot more time in the home than we can cope with comfortably. I tried to be sensible and straightaway compiled a list of jobs for myself. Jobs that until now I've had the excuse of putting off for lack of time. And … Continue reading With time on your hands…..
What did you get up to yesterday during the 2 hours that we would normally have been knitting in the park? Liz spent some of the time enjoying the sunshine in her garden with coffee and corn cake. Strange names to give to her cats! Linda probably carried on with her Coronavirus Shawl which she … Continue reading Do tell
I think of the 29th as a bonus day. It's for doing something that you'd think twice about on a normal day. An activity that, usually, would make you debate internally about whether you are really able to spare the time for it before deciding guiltily that there are loads of jobs that need to … Continue reading Happy 29th Feb
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?
The Knitting Friends in the Park are eight! Happy Birthday to us! Our birthday treat this year was a day trip to Yorkshire. We were lucky to be given some money by the council so spent it on minibus hire, which meant that none of us had to drive and we could have a relaxing … Continue reading 23rd August 2019
I've been very quiet on the blogging front - nothing since March! That doesn't mean that I haven't been knitting. I've knitted in between hospital appointments but these are now finished with, apart from check-ups, and I'm back on track, in the land of the knitting. The last post was about our new year's resolutions. … Continue reading I’m back!
