With thanks to Gill and her kind donation of some lovely yarn, the ladies of the Fenton Knitting Group enjoyed another great wool swap this week.
In honour of Gill and her fundraising endeavours, we have donated our subs this week to her Justgiving page.
Don’t worry, B, we have saved some wool for you!
We also enjoyed a slice of Mr handmadebysoo’s birthday cake with our tea!
This October sees the screening of a documentary film about everything yarny. Sadly, the closest screening currently arranged is still more than an hour away from Fenton, but watch this space!
Full details of the film and where to see it here.
As part of her unofficial kitten socialisation programme Milly, at the tender age of 10 weeks, has now joined the Fenton Knitting Group as a regular member. She enjoys exploring our knitting bags and checking out people’s feet. She’d also love to run across the table, chasing all those balls of wool, but somehow realises that this may not be allowed.
So instead she takes herself off to enjoy one of her favourite games, finding the marble in Mummy’s Crocs!
The ladies of the Fenton Knitting Group will be meeting tonight as usual, despite the soaring temperatures. Yes, even in Lincolnshire!
We will be keeping ourselves cool with a glass or two of refreshing handmadebysoo elderflower cordial. There will also be freshly baked scones with handmadebysoo jam (pear from the garden and fruits of the forest gathered during woodland walkies), butter and clotted cream.
And you never know. We may also do a little bit of knitting, sewing, crocheting, chatting …
Why not come along and join us?
handmadebysoo will be joining local crafters tomorrow (Saturday) for the Kettlethorpe Craft Fair and Tea Party at the village hall from 1pm to 5pm. On the handmadebysoo stall you will find lots of vintage haberdashery goodies, crafting books, knitting needles, DPNs, buttons and bits and bobs as well as homewares hand made from vintage fabrics and knitted novelties. There will also be an opportunity to find out all about the Fenton Knitting Group. So please join us for a slice of cake and a cuppa and lots of fabulous crafty browsing.
Just a reminder that the Fenton Knitting Group will not be meeting this evening, as previously notified to members, as Soo has to attend a tutor training session elsewhere.
So, sorry, ladies no cake and no gossip this evening, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get on with your crafting! Meanwhile, Ailbe will be enjoying a little snooze!
And don’t forget, ladies, it’s our one year anniversary dinner next week!
On Tuesday evening members of the Fenton Knitting Group welcomed a very special guest indeed. B had travelled all the way from Kent to stay with handmadebysoo. A regular member of the Aylesford Knitting Group, which closed when Soo relocated to Lincolnshire, B joined us at The Barn for one night only to share with us the joy of knitting. Soo said: “I was so excited that B was coming to visit and especially that she was able to join us at the Fenton Knitting Group. It was just like old times!” The FKG’s living mascot, DeeDee, was also eagerly anticipating B’s arrival. But first, she had a spot of gardening to do. Don’t forget to plant catnip, DeeDee!
