See you on Friday!

Eye, eye! I spy another knitted seagull!

For my ‘festival’ knitting project at the East Malling CAMRA beer and cider festival yesterday, I finally made a start on my latest knitting commission: a life sized knitted seagull for J.

The cider at the festival was, however, very good, so I’m afraid I didn’t get terribly far with the knitting.  I started at the top of the head and just got the eyes in place.

Come to our Knitting Picnic!

As we can’t wait the whole summer through before our next meeting on 10 September, the Aylesford Knitting Group is holding a Knitting Picnic on Wednesday 28 August from 3pm. Everyone is welcome, members and non-members. New to knitting? Why not come along and see what the AKG is all about?
We shall be meeting at The Friars in Aylesford ME20 7BX at 3pm by the tea rooms before spreading our (hand knitted or crocheted!) blankets in the grounds and enjoying some good food, a natter and a bit of outdoor knitting.
Find the pattern for this lovely crocheted blanket, here:

Knitting Richard!

I shall be knitting in public again on Friday evening when I take my seat at The Friars in Aylesford to watch the amazing Changeling Theatre production of Richard III. Join me!
