Yarn Shop Day

Tomorrow is Yarn Shop Day, the day when knitters everywhere celebrate their favourite local wool shop. The ladies of the Fenton Knitting Group will be visiting The Wool Loft in Gainsborough. Small, but beautifully formed and absolutely jam packed with gorgeous yarns of every colour and type, The Wool Loft is a true hidden treasure and Liz is a fount of all yarny knowledge. Why not join us?

The Lincoln Imp came along, too!

The Fenton Knitting Group joins the big knit

With 25p donated to Age UK for every bottle of Innocent smoothie sold, sporting a knitted or crocheted hat, it’s time for us to join in with the big knit.

Let’s see how many gorgeous little hats we can make. And what better way to use up all those oddments of wool?

There are some fabulous new patterns to try out this year. Or better still, let’s go freestyle and design our own.

Watch this space for photos of our hats.

Happy Valentine’s Day from handmadebysoo

The ladies of the Fenton Knitting Group will be meeting this evening as usual. There will be a very special chocolate mousse cake, courtesy of the lovely Mary Berry, and a few other chocolatey treats. And yes, despite our slightly sticky fingers, we will be working at the table as usual, underneath the Valentine hearts hanging from the ceiling.

 

The Fenton Knitting Group resumes

Members of the Fenton Knitting Group will be crafting again at The Barn this evening from 6pm, catching up on all their crafty achievements over the holidays. There will be handmadebysoo Christmas cake to sample and something for the chocoholics. New Year’s diets do not apply on Tuesday evenings!

Looking forward to seeing everyone again.

Soo enjoyed a restful and refreshing New Year break in North Yorkshire. There were lots of very muddy walks with Ailbe, huge pub lunches and a little bit of knitting, too.
