Get craftsy with Joann


Since I taught myself to crochet granny squares, watching Catherine Hirst’s (http://www.catherinehirst.com/) amazing Youtube video, I’m always looking out for visual guides.  Follow this link to a whole world of craftsy how tos.  There’s even one especially for Emma!  Mummy just has to make you this most adorable giraffe! This one belongs to Martha Bilski.  You can see her projects here: http://www.craftsy.com/user/517684/projects

The Aylesford Knitting Group joins The Big Lunch

There’ll be no meeting of The Aylesford Knitting Group this evening as we are currently enjoying Half Term.  But don’t forget to come and join us if you can for The Big Lunch this Sunday, 2 June.


From 12.00 noon onwards we will be having a picnic lunch (and, possibly, a glass of wine) on the river bank down by the village car park.  Bring a blanket and a picnic, but most of all, bring your knitting!

Sorry, ladies. No knitting tonight!

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!

Let’s get knitting – again!

After a week off for Half Term, the Aylesford Knitting Group resumes again this Tuesday, 26th February and Hurrah! the Aylesford level crossing will be open!  So, no problems getting here.  Looking forward to it already!  Soo x

I have been knitting over the holidays, but also found that January was the perfect time to make some jam.  Yum!
