Excellent meeting with Crochet Lesson!

I think there were a dozen of us tonight (plus one 10 year old hanger-on, hehe) which is excellent. We had two new ladies - welcome to Enid and Jean - and the 'old faithfuls' were all there apart from Tracy who has had flu and sends apologies. Get well soon Tracy, we missed you.

Linda did a wonderful job of trying to teach us to crochet, and I think some of us did better than others, lol. It's amazing just how long you have to make a chain until the tension is right! I think with a bit of practise at home we might get there eventually ;o)

Sally has finished her lovely knitted necklace, and has just been left with stubs of fingers, bless her :)

Michelle sailed in like a galleon and got the weight off her poor swollen feet immediately. We all wish you well and a safe delivery sometime during the next month. We can't wait to see him :)

I'll be writing to the lady from Chelmsford group to see if we can meet up with them in Boreham some time in November, when we can have a look at her sock yarn and meet some more Essex knitters.

If I've forgotten anything please add comments or make a post of your own if it works for you. Can someone tell me the date of the next meeting? On a previous post it says 30th October but I think 23rd was being mentioned at the meeting. Is it always the last Monday of the month? I think that's what was decided but I get in a muddle with it.

It was great to see such a good turnout last night & to welome Jean & Enid. The next meeting is 30th [last Monday] as far as I remember. Thanks to Julia for giving us all a list of sites to explore. Sounds like a good idea to try to get together with Chelmsfordin November. Is anyone else going to Alexandra Palace, I hope to go on Sunday although I have a stall at Cressing Temple Food Fayre that weekend! Good luck Michelle, Let us all know when HE arrives, be aware that a girl who works for us in Sudbury was ASSURED that she was having a girl & out popped Ryan!!!
Have a good month

No problem - I hope you find them useful!

I'll be at Ally Pally on Sunday. Franklin's in Chelmsford is running a coach trip. It's £23 per person and I think they still have a few places left. The coach leaves Chelmsford on Sunday morning at 8:45 am.
