Phylllis has a new obsession.........socks! You have been warned, they are addictive! Phyllis also likes to adapt patterns and experiment with yarns and stitches to add texture. At the moment she is working on a pair that using a variety of stitches. I can't wait to see them completed. The set of three pairs of socks has been worked with DROPS FABLE and the other pair are DK ICE YARN from Norma.

AND......Phyllis even had time to make a cosy hat a set of ear warmers!

Elaine has been working with the popcorn stitch and created this beautiful baby hat for Yorkhill and the hat with the pompom for her box. in both cases , Elaine used two strands of DK together. Just in time for the winter!

Donna crocheted this wee brooch for her best friend, Caroline.

Morag only had a photograph on her phone to remind herself of the cushion she crocheted as a gift.

Roberta is full of surprises! She is craft mad and usually has a finish to show, holidays permitting. This week, Roberta, had another Twiddle Muff ready for decoration and a giant granny square blanket for Yorkhill.

I think Ally has a production line going in her work! This is a selection of Twiddlemuffs  that she had been decorating.

The final total raised by the Happy Hookers now stands at £3285 after a donation from Yvonne. Well done, everyone! What an achievement!

Our Christmas Party will take place on Tuesday !st of December in the Management suite. Bring a present if you wish to participate in the Christmas Pass the Parcel. Something up to the value of £5 or you could recycle an unwanted gift. Christmas jumpers are optional.

Linda says that this is her last year doing the Shoe Box Charity. She will be happy to accept filled boxes or cash to pay for their postage which works out at between £2.50 and £3 per box.

I got a lovely thank you email from the Beatson about the syringe driver bags. This will be forwarded to you.

Thanks again to M & S cafe for their hospitality. It is always a joy to visit there.
