Will this winter ever end? I can't remember one like it - seems we've had snow/frost almost every day since the middle of December. I have a real longing now for wearing sandals and a lot less layers.
Despite the best efforts of the weather to scupper S&B group last night - it went ahead. We're now a group of over 20 regulars - with about 15 of those there last night. Have to blame the icy roads for putting those living out of the town in more rural areas off.
A real mixture of skills and abilities. One lady who came last night is a brilliant knitter but wanted help learning to use a sewing machine.
I'll have to be honest - lots of nattering does go on but even with that I was able to finish another square for my blanket.
One of the things we all do is bring craft books to share and inspire. I was lent this book by a sister (an amazing knitter);
Haven't actually uttered those words yet - but the phrase 'Wait till I've finished my row' is becoming increasingly used in this house!!
Lots of stuff in there and loads of pictures - my favourite is this one - perhaps its a Peruvian S&B group?;
Right the half term holidays start in about 1/2 an hour when the boys come in. Lots planned including big son going on a scout camp for the weekend - rather him than me.
BTW - thanks for all the birthday wishes & comments yesterday - he had a great day.
Tiil next time
