Winter Style.

Roberta didn't take much coaxing to model Magda's snood. It looked so cosy! Magda worked the snood in a new yarn she found in Hobbycraft, Sirdar TOUCH.

Magda's sister-in-law is visiting from Poland and Magda thought that she could do with a warm hat to survive the Great British Winter. This one has been worked in Sirdar CLICK chunky.

The two matching hats are for the boys who are still at Primary School and Magda has knitted the hats in the school colours. This time she used Stylecraft SPECIAL dk and put to colours together to create this affect.

Magda couldn't help feeling pleased with herself when she displayed her final finish! This jumper is for herself and it looks fab! It is 17 Shades of Grey! I'm saying nothing. I know that you are probably wondering where the other 33 shades are! It is stunning and ideal for Sunny Glasgow in December.

Fran had a couple of finishes this week. The first is a baby hat and cocoon that she had crocheted for her cousin's wee girl who has a new born doll. The other finish is a cocoon shawl for herself. It looks great and I'm glad to see people taking time to make something for themselves.

Janet made two Christmas Wreaths. She bought the basic shape from Hobbycraft and decorated the blue one with ribbon from her stash and Christmas decorations that she had at home. The second wreath was decorated with ribbon bought in Poundland and other odds and ends. Very professional, Janet!

Norma worked up this dolls pram set very quickly indeed. It is for a friend at work. Below you will see some Christmas bunting. The blue set is for Janet and the second set is for Janet's sister, FLO, Ho Ho Ho!

Bekka recently joined our group and was happy to show us her family of  Elves. Sadly, they are all spoken for and will shortly be going to new homes. The sparkly yarn she found in Poundland. There are bargains out there if you know where to look.

Elaine was the narrator of the Left/Right Stitch N Bitch version of the Night before Christmas. As usual, Elaine had us all in stitches and by the end of the story none of us knew our left from our right! Great fun and a great way to play Pass the Parcel. Well done, Elaine!

Isabel and Roberta organised the eats. Kat made some of her world famous tablet and Bekka made some traditional mince pies which were delicious. Yum!

Tuesday was our last night before Christmas. Magda and Stephanie are organising an emergency crafting session in M & S Cafe on Tuesday 5th January 2016 at 7pm. Those poor souls who have to fit in work around their crafting time will meet in the Management Suite on 12th January 2016 at 7pm.

Annee has asked for volunteers to join a Focus Group at the Fort to discuss their shopping experience at the Fort in the Management Suite on Tuesday 19th January between 6.30pm and 7.30pm. Annee would like between 6 and 10 people to participate. Please remember the Management Team have been very generous to our group by providing such excellent accommodation. Please email your interest to Elaine or let her know the week before if you are interested,

Merry Christmas to you all and may you be healthy, wealthy and wise in 2016.

Happy crafting.
