Ok once again these pics are a little late in being posted. This was the first Sunday in January and the first meet up of 2008 of the Amida knitters.
Welcome to Stephanie who joined us for the first time and also to our visitor Heather (Army of Knitters) who was back over from the pond to renew her visa and as she had an appointment in town on the Monday morning was also able to come along too! Hurray for Heather.
It was a bit dark but you can get the general idea and feel for the place. Can you spot the swimmer in distance behind us. It is a gym and we do excercise there sometimes.
Heather also gave me a run down on the magic loop method for sock knitting so I will be trying that when I cast on my next pair of socks.
She has also written detailed instructions in her book, Not Your Mamas Knitting.
Thanks to Robynn who brought along a preview of her lovely new yarn stocks. We got to touch and squeeze and admire before it all went live on her website on the 11th January. Go on, take a look you know you want to. The colours are gorgeous and the textures are so, so soft. I know what is on my wish list.
What I want is the colour of the Great Big Sea in the Camel spin. Now that is just gorgeous yarn.
The next meeting for interested knitters is on Sunday 20th January at 7.30pm.
