On the first and third Monday nights of the month, I go to a 'Sit and Stitch' session at my local yarn shop. (It's the same shop where I also attend a K4BN Knit and Natter on the 3rd Saturday of the month) Because it is of an evening, most of my fellow knitters/crocheters are in the workforce.
|There's time for coffee/ tea and often there are goodies to share...|
|The patterns used at these night time sessions are usually more intricate than usual...and Gabby (the shop owner) is always willing to lend a hand in deciphering a pattern.|
It weighs 500 grams! Pauline, who emigrated to Australia bought 20 of these before she left England! They were excellent value, each being less than GBP6. I imagined a suitcase stuffed with them but Pauline assured us that the yarn was packed in the shipping container with all the other possessions that she brought with her.
The lady sitting on the sofa next to Pauline is Denise, also from the UK. Now I mentioned before that quite a bit of intricate knitting goes on in this group and Denise's work is superb. Here's a link to her Etsy shop; it's worth a look.
