A Morning of Knittingy People.

This morning my neighbour, my cousin and one of my friends (actually they are all my friends) all popped around randomly for a cup of tea. All four of us are knitted and I almost hyperventilated when I realised that we had formed an impromptu knitting group!!!!!!! It was like a dream come true so I think now we have to do some sort of official monthly thing about it. We even talked about knitting!!!!! The two photos below and one above are from my neighbour's bag. She is in the middle of crocheting a beautiful spring blossom blanket for an eight year old and a tie and cardigan for her husband. I think they are the luckiest people in the world.
I love the colours in this tie...
And the chunkiness of the cardigan wool... it makes me very tempted to do something similar for Jonno.
I was working on a vest for Hugo to wear to school over his uniform. It infuriates me that their uniform is completely and utterly lacking any natural wool fibres. Another little boy in his class also has a hand knitted vest so I know he won't be alone.
And when everyone left, I played around with my derwents, planning my next project.
Lots and lots and lots of love,
Kate xxooxx.


  1. Hello Kate, It's so lovely to hear from you. I have to agree how wonderful it is getting together with friends to craft whether it be a regular occurrence or an impromptu one like you had today. A good cup of tea and knitting or hooky time, BLISS!
    It is a shame that we don't use more natural fibres in our clothing. School uniforms seem to be terribly expensive and when the fibres are man made, well, I can't see the value. Your Hugo will be toasty warm when you have made him his vest. He is a lucky young man to have such a caring mum.
    Have a lovely evening,
    Anne xx

  2. That tie is very cool! I'd wear it myself! And it looks even cooler with the cardigan/sweater, (can't remember which it was). So pleased you've found a knitting group in your own home, it sounds like the perfect combination of people, and well, the perfect social event. Love Vanessa xxx

  3. Hope Archie is recovered. I just love your little rabbit family. Ros
