November meeting and show and tell

Another busy evening so before we started our knitting we had show and tell and a bit of an update about what we'd all been up to.

I told everyone how I had got on at the Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace. The atmosphere at this show was really exciting. The weather was good which helped and over the course of 4 days there were around 50,000 visitors to the show.

We then moved on to Show and Tell. There were 3 more beautiful blankets to go to SANDS.

Marcia has knitted herself a lovely chunky jacket to wear this winter. It will keep her lovely and warm.

Chris has knitted another beautiful scarf.....

And a bag.

When we had all finished looking at the lovely knitted items Chris introduced us to knitting using a chart instead of the usual K2,p1 sl1 psso that we usually use. The charts are especially useful when knitting shawls as you can "see" the pattern on the chart.

Chris had printed some copies of one of her charts and we were all able to have a go. She was there to help us when we got stuck.

Needless to say we also did a bit of chatting whilst we were knitting!

It was another evening that went all too quickly.

Thanks Chris showing us how to knit form a chart. I really do intend to have a go and not just knit a little sample!
