There was an art class running at Tim's yesterday morning so the group met at my place. The weather forecast was overcast but humid. I set up in the conservatory so that we could knit beside the open doors and windows.
Alicia and her daughter Phillipa were the first to arrive, on the dot of 10am. We settled into our chairs and were chatting so much that we didn't notice the time passing. I was just beginning to worry that the others who had confirmed their attendance hadn't arrived when Alicia noticed someone making their way through the house towards the conservatory.
|The quiet corner|
Jane had brought her copy of 'toe up socks' for me to browse as I want to knit a long pair without the worry of running out of yarn. Her sister, Lesley, is the 'Sock Princess' so it's a great pity that she is only visiting the area. I wonder if we might persuade her to re-locate?

|No, not the head of the capo di famiglia. Hilary arrives carrying a marrow|
I've mentioned it before but it bears repeating, how wonderfully caring and sharing are the members of this group. Alicia and Hilary brought home-grown vegetables for me and Jane gave me a pot of recently-made berry jam. Knitting magazines and books are freely shared as is expertise and experience (not just about knitting). One of our members has moved from the area and we are already planning a visit next Spring for a knitting weekend at her new home.
I think everyone had an enjoyable morning. I know I did.
