And then there were five!

The second meeting of Spennyknit took place on Monday 2nd October. We gained two new members: Becky, from In Stitches and Olwyn. We discussed ideas for the Teddy Bears' picnic and had a look at the Drops booklets I was sent.

Carrie Anne has updated the Knit n Natter blog with lots of picture of donated knits. The display is going to be amazing when all the teddies, blankets and food are all together.

Please come along to The Four Clocks Centre, Bishop Auckland on Friday 20th October between 10am and 2pm. We will be selling the knitted items as well as refreshments ( homemade cakes - yummy!). Experts from the knitting groups will be on hand to give lessons and advice. We will be selling knitting starter kits.

The Spennymoor Settlement are having a Table Top Sale on Saturday 21st October. Kathleen and I are both having a craft stall.

We have some exciting things planned between our four groups. Our theme is Teddy Bears' Picnic. Members of the groups are busy knitting teddies and picnic food, as well as blanket squares.
