On my last trip to Florida I brought some fancy sock yarn, a pattern book and needles and I did make a start but it got put away and I forgot about it until I went to Stitch-n-Bitch last week and saw that my friend Sue was knitting socks. Last night out came my needles, yarn and pattern and l knitted the above. Not too bad for my first time knitting with four needles and, hopefully, I will be wearing these socks shortly. I finished knitting the Aran cardigan I started last year but am ashamed to say that the pieces are not yet stitched together - I enjoy knitting but not the making up!
All is ready for the Sew Advent sampler SAL 2013 and the patterns are ready to be sent out on a daily basis. I'm not sure I can wait until December as I am raring to go. There are only a few spaces available so if you are interested in joining please email me as soon as possible - you can find my email address on my profile.
Tomorrow is the last of the Kent Region's Mini rally - the Breakfast Run. We meet at 10am at the famous Roadhouse Cafe in Lenhan *here* where a full English Breakfast will be served and we will be given our 'day packs' containing instructions for the rally. This is followed by a two hour run through country roads to finish at the newly refurbished Broad Oak Mini Dealer in Ashford for tea/coffee and a tour of the dealership. Mmnn I quite fancy a new Mini! Pictures to follow in my next post.
We have two Stitch-n-Bitchers' birthdays on October 31 so instead of meeting as usual on the Wednesday we are meeting up on Tuesday at a local restaurant for dinner and gift giving. An early Happy Birthday to Sue and Sylvie our very own Halloween witches!
Thanks for visiting
