2nite was the 1st meeting of the Lee Green Community Centre’s Knitting Group.
I took a load of my own creations 4 people 2 c, plus yarns & needles 4 anyone who didn’t have any with them. BUT I 4got 2 bring my net book & crochet hooks! Of course, I took my new Birch wood interchangeable knitting needles!
Thank you 2 Mary 4 setting it up & providing the refreshments. Keep on knitting your beautiful flower. Mary’s creation, somes from the book, Flowers to Knit (I think). I’ll tell u more, next week.
A big thanks 2 Purpleclaire 4 bringing her peg loom. She started weaving a gift 4 a friend, & will b doing a group weave-a-long, so we can all take part. I’m looking forward 2 to doing my bit, plus it makes the group not just about knitting & crocheting. Thanks PC :x)
AreSlinkysArt wore a fabulous, dusky pink, short sleeved, raglan shrug, which she designed & knitted in 3 days! She even started another 1 2nite - & no pattern needed, it just comes out of her head! U go girl! On her hands, she’s wearing her own designed fingerless mittens/gloves, with a very unique feature: a pocket 4 her Oyster card!
Patricia had not knitted 4 a while, but with some needles & variegated yarn, she started knitting a scarf, & Purpleclaire showed her how 2 do a drop stitch. Keep going, Patricia, it looks great! Thanks 2 PC 4 showing her the stitch technique. Sorry, no pic. Looking 4ward 2 c in how u got on with it.
Monika, who’s only been crocheting for 3 weeks, tried a flower pattern, from Mary’s book 101 Flowers to Knit & Crochet. It wasn’t an easy pattern for a new crocheter, but I admire Monika’s enthusiasm & determination to push herself. Hopefully, she’ll have finished it 4 next week, if I don’t c her in the shop, b 4 then!
The time flew by, & b 4 we knew it, it was going on 8.30 & time 2 pack up & go home. I’m looking forward 2 next week, & c in how every 1 progressed.
So until the next time. Keep crafting, keep creating.
Peace & Love
