Monday 20th meeting

Well what more can I say I think Carol has covered most of the meeting and with great pics as well.
We Welcomed Kay to the meeting and got her started on a project that she has pulled out of retirement. WELCOME.
The time flew passed with lots of chatter and knitting.
Elizabeth is getting better and tried a few rows of knitting.
The next 2 meetings are on 11th and 18th of May due to to many bank holidays.
Hopefully we will have a full house again.
See You all there.

Socks....ha ha

Found my third visit with the group most enjoyable, as usual. Have I mentioned that I am a novice when it comes to knitting? Haven't done anything since the age of about 18 and then not much. When I started up again, some 32 years later I could remember how to knit, but not how to cast on or cast off. Casting off wasn't a problem; I found that easy to learn again, but I could not seem to get the casting on quite right. Tracey to the rescue.....she showed me an easy, neat way to cast on which I will remember, so thanks for that and then.......starting my socks - Whoa....too many needles - Jan helped me and pointed out how I should be careful not to get them twisted, thanks Jan. Well I won't say that they are the easiest thing to knit and I have probably bitten off more than I can chew, but I hope I end up with something that I can wear and if they aren't that good, well no one sees them under your boots, ha ha. It is 11:25pm and I am on my third round and have decided to unravel it and start again as one needle looks nice and neat, but the other two really do not. plus I seem to have dropped a stitch on one needle and gained a stitch on the other needle......told you I was a novice, but I feel like a ten ear old and I KNOW that you learn more from your mistakes than anything else, so I will soldier on. Above you can just see the top of a sock knitted by Tracey and a beautiful toddler's jacket, isn't it lovely.
Here we have an almost completed sock being modelled by Judy, aren't they lovely, I just had to photograph this!

April 6th meeting

Mondays meeting saw fewer members this time but we are leading up to Easter.
There were still 7 of us and a good night of knitting and chatting was had.
Elizabeth was not knitting as she has broke her arm( hope it gets better soon)
I was helping Mavis create a hat in Very chunky yarn. Jenny was trying to finish her socks.
We all had a good evening and meet again on Monday 20th April.

Knitting Socks?

Okay, you have worn me down Tracy and I have gone and bought some sock wool, but now in a dilemma as to what sock pattern to chose from.......HELP! Maybe you can help me here so I have something to bring along to our next meeting on Monday? Do you have a link that I can follow so I at least know what size needles to buy? I have looked on the Internet for some patterns, but want something either easy to follow or something you recommend.

Yours confused......
