I've been very busy and haven't had time to update the blog - apologies to those that read regularly. I've now found someone to help me keep it up to date so we will try and do better in future.
So to catch up on what's been happening - way back at the beginning of September we had our AGM. We discussed club business and then showed things we'd made during the summer months. Unfortunately I didn't get to take photos of the things that were brought along, but I did take a picture of a couple of the club members and you can see the lovely shawl that Christine made on her lap.
What have I been doing - well helping on stands at exhibitions promoting machine knitting of course. I've been to the Creative Crafts Show at Esher, Creative Stitches and Hobbycrafts at Exeter, and the Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace. At all three shows we had a wall hanging on display. Part of it was knitted originally for Unravel at Farnham Maltings in February, and we didn't want to just throw it away after. So this is what it looks like now.
