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.

Different ladies, different projects, different kitchen – same table, same laughter, same joy!

Christmas holidays, and then a party (!) for the Fenton Knitting Group

In the very busy run up to Christmas, the ladies of the Fenton Knitting Group have decided to wait until the New Year to celebrate the season together. Our first Knitting Group meeting of 2018 will be on Tuesday, 9 January at 6pm. Ailbe can’t wait!

Until then, wishing all knitters a very happy and knitty Christmas.
