There were 10 of us this morning, knitting in the yarn section of the shop. While it's lovely to be among all that glorious colour, it really is a bit difficult without the use of a table. Some members had brought books and magazines for sharing, others needed help interpreting parts of patterns. A large table would have made things so much easier. Even making tea and coffee and sharing Maya's birthday cake-bites proved difficult. There was also a feeling that we were 'in the way' when staff members needed to get to the store-room, and customers wanted to browse the yarn shelves.
In the light of all these difficulties, the next meeting - i.e. the 5th February will be hosted by Fiona. For details of how to get there, leave a comment to this entry and I will email the address.
There will also be an extra (planning) meeting at Maya's on 12th February to discuss the Lavender Fair and Christmas Tree Festival.
A new, exciting development, is the suggestion of an away-weekend. Phillipa is researching suitable locations at reasonable cost. The proposal is for a winter-weekend break. Perhaps we might use it as our pre-Christmas celebration/shopping event?
