And so has a leak in the park! There's a leaking underground water pipe in the park just outside the pavilion. It's awaiting repair by the council but, in the meantime, the birds are having a whale of a time in the puddle the leak has created. Our knitters have been very busy. Nimble fingers … Continue reading Spring has sprung
Virtual Friday 40
We had our last virtual meeting of 2020 on the 18th of December. We donned festive hats, munched a mince pie or two and racked our brains to answer Agnes's fiendish quiz questions. The quiz champions this time were Sheila, Sarah and Perveen. We've been busy knitting scarves, blankets and jumpers. But our talented ladies … Continue reading Virtual Friday 40
Virtual Friday 29
We had planned to do something different for today's meeting - a bit of yarn dealing out of a car boot! But just as we agreed on this, our plan was scuppered by the re-imposition of local restrictions in Stockport. It seems that the rest of Greater Manchester was missing us and we needed to … Continue reading Virtual Friday 29
Virtual Friday 22
Unusually, we talked a lot about knitting on the 14th of August. This shouldn't be unusual seeing as we're a knitting group, but to be honest we tend to talk about anything and everything, and knitting is included almost as an afterthought. Judith is finishing her fifth baby cardi. Jayne showed us two lovely baby … Continue reading Virtual Friday 22
Virtual Friday – 8
It's the 8th of May and 75 years since VE (Victory in Europe) Day. There were to be many public gatherings and events which due to Coronavirus have had to be cancelled. Nevertheless, people are remembering the anniversary in inventive ways ranging from community lunches where neighbours gather together but separately to have lunch - … Continue reading Virtual Friday – 8
If you go down to the woods today…….
you'd better make sure that you keep the required distance and whatever you do, don't take a picnic or you might get arrested! My sister sat down briefly on a bench in Richmond the other day and was asked to move by a policeman. He than sat down himself! (Only joking - about him sitting … Continue reading If you go down to the woods today…….
With time on your hands…..
......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'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!
A shower of shawls
Our ladies have been extremely busy recently and have knitted a veritable shower of shimmering shawls. Judith has completed this very lovely shrug with matching hat and wrist warmers: While Linda, who must be in league with the elves because she churns out FO's faster than a yak on speed, has recently completed this … Continue reading A shower of shawls
