Some Party!

Well, Knitting and Friday night arrived, and so did lots of cake! Here you see Ness cutting the birthday cake, with a little help from M.
We also welcomed lots of new members. (eight,I think). I can't remember everyone's names, but we will be delighted to see them all return.
A fair amount of knitting went on. So many different styles of project!
Several people ( Steenie, Amber, Jacqui, Ramona, Kat, Carla, me, and I can't remember the names of the others) went and Knitted In Public at Wellington monument on Monday. That was lovely. It was to publicise the Oxfam project, as well as Close Knit.

While we were there, we were able to get fabulous coffee from the lovely Lisa, who was running Coffee for gossip from her portable coffee bar. (You get cheek as a side order!).

On the knitting front, Steenie has reminded me (!) to post a photo of my mittens/gloves. I finished them in March, from a Rose Michelle Orne pattern. The wool is Jaegar matchmaker d.k. from Hayes.

Tomorrow 5th May wellington monument from 12 noon

Hello everyone - don't forget to come to Wellington Monument tomorrow from 12 noon, to celebrate May day and to knit and eat cake as well as enjoy some of the other attractions (music, dancing, tree decorating, woodland play scheme, Painting etc) that will also be going on. We will have the close knit gazebo up hopefully from about 12 - and all you need to do is to bring chairs/rugs to sit on - and your knitting of course. Don't forget to bring cake too - if you wish/have time!

Hope to see you tomorrow! Blessed Beltane! xx
