Monday 16th May Meeting

This was a relaxed meeting with only 5 members.
Lots of talk about the Knit in public day and trauma teddies were coming hot off the needles.
We were thinking we need a trauma Teddie that could go on hols with everyone in the group. Dressed in blue and red as this is the colours of our T shirts.

The next meeting will be the one before the next bank hols so please all be there as it will be the last before the knit in public.

Hope to see you all next Monday.

11th April meeting

An informative night as Jenny was a wonder wool in Wales at the weekend. She brought back lots of ideas and leaflets and of cause she brought herself some wool and accessories.
The emphasis on promoting British Wool.
A few knitted Teddies were being made although knitting was limited as we were very interested to what Jenny was saying.
A nice group of 10 was squashed in the corner ( very cosy) and dozens of darts players at the other end.
Next meeting on the 18th April the last one before the 2 long weekends so come along as it will be 3 weeks after that making it 9th May.
