So sad to say goodbye

We’ve had to say goodbye to one of our members this summer. B joined us just a year ago. but has now moved away to a lovely new home further north, so won’t be able to join us on Tuesday evenings any more. We shall all miss her terribly, but we’re already planning a visit! So we’ll see you again soon, B! x

Pompomtastic!

The ladies of the Fenton Knitting Group have been delivering bags full of blue, green and white pompoms all morning, so that I will have enough to make a woolly garland to hang outside on Sunday. I’m opening my garden to the public then as a fundraiser for the Nystagmus Network, a charity very close to my heart, and the pompoms are all in the charity’s colours.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, LADIES!

A sweet little fairy cake

In preparation for my Garden Open Day I’m planning which recipes to use for our cake stall. These were suggested by one of my lovely knitting ladies, so we tried them at Knitting Group this week. They were a success.

Elder flower cordial flavoured sponge, combines with lemon curd and elder flower butter cream fillings to create this sweet little fairy cake. Sugar craft and finesse are not my thing – but they really were delicious!

Looking forward, looking back

This year the Fenton Knitting Group will be celebrating its fourth anniversary. Our core membership continues strongly and we welcome every new knitter warmly.

Sitting round the table with friends over your knitting, crochet or sewing, drinking tea, eating cake and keeping up to date with local goings on – what’s not to love?

When I first moved back to Lincolnshire from Kent it was a wrench to leave my knitting group behind, but the joy of that group and the fond memories inspired me to start all over again. I’m so glad I did.

Thank you to the ladies of the Aylesford Knitting Group.
