For the last few years I have been going to a knitting group once a week. I've really enjoyed it, and I've meet some lovely people there. However, a while back, the group moved to a new venue; and I just don't like it. It is quite dark (which is a problem for knitting) and there is just something about the place which, I don't know, is just not for me :(
As a result I've not been going to my knitting group any more, and I really miss it. A few weeks ago Trish and I decided to scope out the hipster pub midway between our two houses, to see if it would be a suitable place for knitting.
Turns out it is. Nice beer, not to dark and not to far away. Initially, we talked about asking our old group if they wanted to move, or setting up a new group. But ... well, it turns out we are a bit lazy and so it is still just the two meeting for a beer, a chat and a knit once a week. Which is lovely.
We've also started a KAL (Knit A Long - for those who don't know the acronym). We are both knitting the same thing; Rachel Coopey's Hulanicki socks
Mine are the pink, Trish's the burgundy - she is somewhat ahead, but it is not a competition. Or, at least, that is what I keep telling myself.
