Today was the monthly Knit an Natter Group at The Amble Pincushion – and a bit of a Christmas party, with crackers, gifts and mince pies. In the picture you can see today’s work in progress – Clockwise from top right: moss stitch baby jumper (aren’t the colours beautiful); shawl in shades of blue: picot edged baby jacket (for a new baby granddaughter), stripy socks, a Christmas elf and the start of a twiddle mitt.
Here’s a close up of the elf – Anne knitted this and was wearing him as a brooch.
This was today’s raffle prize: a kit to make a group of Christmas decorations.
One of the group had brought sweets for everyone and group leader Anne gave us each some needles and a pincushion she’d made.
That’s the last Knit and Natter of the year. We’ll be back at The Amble Pincushion 10am-12, on the third Friday in January, for more knitting, nattering, expert advice as needed, tea/coffee and biscuits, a raffle and 10% off in the shop. All this for £4.50! Such a lovely group!
