Several ladies have noticed that Dee Dee hasn’t turned up for knitting on Tuesday evenings for the past few weeks. Please rest assured that she is very much with you in spirit. It’s just that she hasn’t recently had much time or energy left for knitting. She has been so busy looking after her Daddy as he recuperates and all that caring tends to take it out of an elderly girl. Here she is having a little snooze on the sofa once her daily duties are complete.
Just in case you were wondering … the Aylesford Knitting Group will be meeting tonight, usual time and place. It’s our first meeting of the New Year, so let’s share our knitting resolutions. My number one plan is to work through my WIPs without starting too many new projects. Let’s see how long that lasts! Oops! I fear I may already have broken that particular resolution.
Never mind. As I always say – you’re not a proper knitter until you have at least 9 or 10 projects on the go at once!
I’m busy today putting the finishing touches to the Christmas decorations, as it’s the Aylesford Knitting Group’s Christmas party this evening. This jolly knitted Christmas wreath will take pride of place on the front door, so everyone knows they have the right house.
The mince pies are warming, the (home-made) limoncello is cooling.
I am grateful to Emma Fountaine who contacted me this week to invite members of the Aylesford Knitting Group to her fabric and yarn Open Day this Sunday, 6 October. The event runs between 11am and 4pm and is being held in the historic 15th century Tithe Barn in Lenham. Apparently, they will be offering ploughman’s lunches and cream teas, in keeping with the surroundings! Emma tells me there is lots of parking available and entry is free.
There is also a 10% off offer on her Facebook page, available for use on Sunday: www.facebook.com/emmasfabricstudio And whilst you’re out and about on Sunday, don’t forget the home wares event in aid of the Heart of Kent Hospice, at the Friars in Aylesford.
