A quick update!

Apologies for the lack of updates the last few weeks. I haven't been able to make it along that often. Thankfully my lovely mother, Margaret, stepped in and took some photo's during my absence. I thought I would post them together here.

First of all Helen finished a lovely scarf she crocheted. She used leftover sock yarn which turned out to be very effective. Looks lovely too.

Anthea has also been doing some crochet. She finished this lovely bunting. Love the colours.

Stephanie finished this lovely baby set. All done in self striping wool. Our group very much loves the self striping wool.

The shoe box charity is also finished this year. Linda is currently sending them all away. Before she did some of the ladies helped to wrap some boxes. We also donated some of our funds towards sending them off.

Izzi also brought along some Christmas fabric. This was in preparation for our Gartmore at Home, Christmas craft day. You can see Roberta and Alison having a look through it.

The Christmas craft day was a huge success and I have lots of photo's to post. I will hopefully do that soon. We also have a swap night on Tuesday which is usually good fun and are planning our little Christmas party.

I have also been planning on some fun things for next year with some help from the ladies. Helen has lots of fabulous ideas which I think everyone will love. I am also looking for ideas from others and will hopefully have a charity for next year picked out. Just a few things for everyone to look out for.

Hi Janice,

I am really sorry. Your comment was on an old post so I only just saw this. I didn't mean to ignore you.

Hope it's not too late but you would be more than welcome to come along to our group. We are in the conference room of the management suite at the Glasgow Fort every Tuesday from 7.00pm to 8.30pm. When you press the buzzer to be let in just say you are from the knitting group. Then head upstairs and through the doors. You then take the double doors to the right and then the door to the left. You'll find us in there.

Just bring along whatever project you want to work on. We sit round a huge table generally just chatting and crafting. Feel free to bring a coffee or tea in.

Hope you make it along.
