  1. The start of Stoney Middleton Well Dressing is on Saturday 20th July and Lizzie Dripping, Sheffield based dance team will be there. But from Tuesday 16th to Friday 19th July, the Wells will be getting made. It's a great thing to get involved with and very therapeutic. If you've never done Petalling and Well Dressing before I can highly recommend that you give it a go and I invite you to do just that. The Petalling Tent will be in the grounds of St Martin's church in Stoney Middleton. There's some car parking nearby and Stoney Middleton is on the 65 bus route from Sheffield. Just come along any time on 16th to 19th July (inclusive). All materials will be provided and you'll be able to admire your handiwork and craft skills when the Wells are on display from 20th July for one week.
  2. Hi Catmiss - There's a group at Ginger, a café on Glossop Road in Broomhill, that meets on Wednesday afternoons between 2 and 4pm. It's on the 120 bus route. It's a very friendly group of mostly knitting people, but some crochet too and there's great coffee and cake.
  3. Last Knitting Group meeting before Christmas at Broomhill Library this Friday 18th December. Stop the shopping and come and doing some knitting and crochet.
  4. Yes, Ravelry is very good. Laughing Hens have down loadable patterns too.
  5. The knitting group will not be meeting this Friday 27th as Julia Donaldson, author of The Gruffalo, is coming to the library (and it might get a bit busy!). Our next meeting is Friday 4th December, Broomhill Library, upstairs. £1.50 for a cup of tea or coffee and as many custard creams as you like. Everyone welcome.
  6. Hi, It depends how far you want to go with the knitting really - Go onto smaller needles and just cast on about 15 stitches. Work backwards and forwards in moss stitch (like k1, p1 rib gone wrong) and you have the makings of a retro tie. I've done this in a purple tweed wool and it looks very good. Hand warmers are easy to do. Keep to the basis rectangle, fold in half and sew up, leaving a space for the thumb. These can still be done in chunky yarn. I've seen some good knitting books in Brierlow Bar Bookshop out in the Peak District and had a quick flick through a knitting book in Aldi's the other day and that had some canny things in. Good luck with the knitting.
  7. Great seeing everyone last Friday. Just a reminder that we will not be meeting over half term. Our next meeting will be Friday 6th November.
  8. THE KNITTING (and crochet) GROUP is starting at Broomhill Community Library, Taptonville Road on Friday afternoons 1 - 3pm. Whether you're a beginner or an expert; have a knitting problem or just fancy some knitting/crochet, chatting and a cup of tea - come along. It's easy to get to: bus 51, 52 and 120 have stops nearby.
  9. Hi I'm interested in coming along to the knit and natter at the Robin Hood pub. Can you tell me when you are next meeting? Cheers and Happy New Year Kate
