Just a reminder to everyone that The Aylesford Knitting Group will not be meeting this evening as I have a very special theatrical performance at school to host.
Normal service will be resumed next Tuesday, when we will be back knitting again from 6pm to 7.30pm. We look forward to welcoming our new member then!
Meanwhile, don’t forget to watch The Great British Sewing Bee on BBC2 tonight. I’ll be setting the recorder and rooting for Ann!
UPDATE: Congratulations to Ann – a most worthy winner!
Not sure I like the result, but here’s a little something I tried with some fat quarters and ribbon I picked up when I popped into Hobbycraft to buy wool this week. The wall at the top of the stairs was crying out for something a little more exciting than some chalky, white paint! It was great fun getting the buttons to stick on!
Just a reminder that The Aylesford Knitting Group is currently enjoying a two-week break for Easter. We will be back knitting again in Sue’s kitchen on Tuesday, 16th April from 6pm. New members always welcome. Please contact: email@example.com for details.
With my first ever granny square blanket now a fixture in the living room, I am well on the way to creating my second one. I can’t believe I waited till now to learn to crochet. Guess I just had some kind of mental block about getting started. Knitting is still my first love, though!
After years of patiently trying out hundreds of flapjack recipes and never quite getting it right (my son clearly recalls chomping his way through countless examples in his school lunch box!) I have finally found the definitive recipe. I’ve just made my first batch and had to share them here before they disappear!
