Knitting for beginners- make some Christmas stocking fillers.

This is intended for beginners or nearly beginners.  We will be doing simple techniques - casting on, knit stitch and casting off plus, for those who want to go further, purl stitch, increasing and decreasing. I'll be showing you how to make bracelets out of leftover yarn or egg cup cosys and probably a couple of other little items, such as Christmas tree decorations and items that can be given as presents.
There will be cake!

      Thank you so much for coming. You have talent and determination. The cake found a good home. I can send the pattern instructions. Some of us are going to meet in Brixton on 19 November in the evening, venue to be decided, so I'll keep you informed.

    In answer to Holly, I'm not rescheduling. Sometimes clashes happen- that's life.
    Holly, as you live near me I'm sure we can fix to meet. I'll give you a ring soon when I've sorted out some commitments.

    This is at the same time as Sunita's jewellery meetup in Ealing. :(
    Is this going to be rescheduled? If not any plans on doing another one or shall I just ring you Barbara to find out when you are free so we can do it together like we did with my dress?

    Hi Barbara, sounds great. I'm definitely interested.

    Don't ask me when - I will put the date on as soon as I have decided when I can do it. I will not be giving the full address until nearer the time but, if you look in a London A to Z there is only one New Park Road so you can see roughly where it is if you want to see how far your journey would be.
