I hope everyone has had a good summer.
Our new year starts on Tuesday 1st September with our AGM. That doesn't take long, so we will also be having a bit of a discussion about converting patterns from hand to machine, machine to hand and also to using a different yarn. We'd also like members to bring along a favourite website name and share it with us. Feel free to bring your knitting too so that you can work on it while we natter.
There will also be the usual show and tell so bring those along too.
We'll be e-mailing the summer letter round to everyone shortly so if you don't receive it please get in touch.
Visitors and new members are welcome to any of our meetings. The meetings start at 8pm and we usually finish around 10 pm. The car park isn't over large, so if the spaces have all been taken then double park. We'll all be leaving around the same time so it won't inconvenience anyone.
Hope to see you on 1st September.

The one chosen as favourite is the one in the middle row, right hand side, a crochet head scarf/shawl.
There were a few items bought in for show and tell. Jean crocheted this lovely angel. Small enough to hang on your tree or for decorating anywhere. She designed it herself.
Janet has made another crochet blanket. She's still using up her stash but she assures us the quantity is going down - slowly!
Liz knitted this short sleeve jumper using her knitting machine and garter carriage. She said that the top part of the jumper was knitted in stocking stitch as it isn't so easy to shape using the garter carriage. It's quicker too. Still needs to be pressed.
Apologies to whoever knitted this - I didn't make a note and now I can't remember. The zig-zag pattern on the body is caused by yarn, nothing the knitter did.
Stephanie knitted this blue summer top on her knitting machine. She said it wasn't finished yet. She ran out of time to finish the pressing.
And last, but not least, someone has been preparing for winter by knitting this scarf. Another one where the picture doesn't do it justice!
I wonder what will be bought along for show and tell when we meet again in September?
Hopefully all the photos will stay where I put them, but sometimes the computer thinks it knows best!
