Only 40 shopping days left…

Christmas means holidays. Holidays mean exactly that. Much of the discussion this Wednesday was around who was going where for the holidays. Not everyone will be back though, and we said au revoir to a City-Knitter who is returning to the US. Knitting socks to mini-socks, a hallowig to lovely soft cowl, and entertaining us with travel stories, she is always part of our Wednesday fun. Can’t we convince you to come back - we’ll miss you!!

With winter weather definitely settling in, socks are reigning supreme at the moment.Continuing progress was being made on a set of lovely mulberry-coloured coasters, a blue cabled jumper and a fluffy, ruffly scarf. There was also some firsts for some people this week: a brave knitter venturing into the world of crochet amigurumi, and a foray into land of sock-making (the joys of 4 dpns!).

If you’re thinking of coming along to a knitting session, please do! There will still be Edinburgian knitters around over the next couple of months so come along and keep them company. Weekends at Double Dutch are still on the list as well, check the Yahoo group calendar for which day each week, and maybe post a message to say you’re going along. Happy knitting!
