January Meeting

Although most us had been busy with Christmas, we still had a few new garments to admire from those of us who had been able to get to our knitting machines. Janet used up some of her 'stash' of mohair to hand knit the beret.

Vivienne was busy knitting for her newest grandchild. The little sailor outfit with its matching hat is machine knitted in 4 ply acrylic.

Barbara G showed us the beaded top she had machine knitted using 3 ends of fine yarn. The shoulders were embellished with a collection of silver beads that really made the garment look very exciting.

Janice hand knitted this lovely boy's cardigan in a very soft hand knitting yarn. It has a lovely soft feel and I hope we can post the name of the yarn in our next posting.

We discussed plans for our first Knit and Natter which will be held at All Saints Church Hall in Hampton on the 17th of September 2011.

Next month we will be looking at ways to cover cut and sew necklines.

Hello there, I have just discovered your blog, which is great. I wonder if you could help me. I live in Brentford and have been given an old double-bed Singer knitting machine, which I have no idea how to use. I have the instruction booklets but am totally flummoxed by them, as is a friend of mine, who has a single-bed machine. Would anyone in your group be able to show me how to work it? I would pay them. I don't want to do anything complicated, just baby blankets/cushion covers/scarves. I would be so grateful. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks very much. All the best. Michele Jameson
