Morning everyone, just a quick post to let you know how it went last night at the Big Knit......
I had about 20 people planned to come but unfortunately a few people cancelled at the last minute & a lot of people just didn't turn up!!!
In total there was about 12 of us on & off, some people had other plans so only stayed for an hour, but I do think that was a good turn out. The pub wasn't happy with us as we didn't spend very much money..... £2 for a glass of coke, £3.10 for a pint of cider!!!!.... so most of us only had 1 drink! We were hoping to make it a regular event but I think we need to look for another venue!
So here are a few snaps.....
Look at the concentration on Erica's (with the blond hair) face!!!....she'd only ever practiced before, she was over joyed with the fact she made a little hat..... bless her it did take her 3 hours!!!
The good thing about last night was the fact I didn't know many people, they found the group on Facebook or Ravelry & decided to just come along. It was great to meet new people.
Fantastic...... we managed 25..... ok so I did 12 of them but it was great to see people learning. There was a large cheer for every hat we finished & all the ladies took their own photo's as the were so proud of what they had made.
I also learnt I'm quite a good teacher as I had a few people who hadn't knitted for 20 years plus or had never tried it before! We had experience knitters that now teach people but to be honest I felt I had more knowledge then them so this has given me the confidence to set up the group I've been thinking about for 5 years!!!
At the end of the evening everyone agreed we must do it again.
I'm looking forward to receiving all your postal ones by 10th October?
How are you getting on???
I hope we can reach our target of 50!
Have a good day.
