December Hootenanny Reminder

knittingondeck

So next week will see our last hootenanny of the year.  It’s been really fun resurrecting our monthly meet ups.  We’ve met some wonderful stitchers and I’ve actually got some knitting done too!

We will be back in 2018 with more hootenannies, details to follow shortly.

So pack a project and come get your stitch on with us.

All are welcome, you don’t even have to be good!

Team Yarningham visit NYE

On Saturday, Team Yarningham (Sara, Helen, V, and Lil) took a day trip to the inaugural Nottingham Yarn Expo.  NYE is a large show (over 100 stands!) held at Nottingham Conference Centre.

We had a glorious day out visiting the show, including a slap up lunch of delicious pizza at Oscar and Rosie’s and spotting a cafe/bar called Yarn (that didn’t have any yarn in it).  We also got to chat to some of the previous Yarningham exhibitors and do a bit of scouting for next year’s show.

We didn’t forget to shop either.  Here are some pics of Team Yarningham’s hauls.  Can you guess which haul belongs to whom?

November Hootenanny

Last night was our November Hootenanny.  A big thank you to all the stitchers who came along to get their stitch on.

Here are a few pictures from last night including a beautiful Sanquhar jumper that I am plotting to steal and a visit from BCU Crafty Bitches group.  It was great to meet you all.
