Our youngest visitor

Last night we had a visit from Kerrie Allman of 'Hipknits', who brought along her delightful 3 month old daughter Trinity. There was a lot of oohing & aahing & passing Trinity round for cuddles, but we did get some knitting done. thank you for coming Kerrie, you will be welcome any time.
As well as welcoming Kerrie we were able to say hello to Cath, Jane & Abbie.
Jane had been so inspired by her first visit last time that she had been out & bought baby yarn & had produced several minute outfits for a prem baby unit.
Anne had been seduced by the Innocent Smoothie pledge to donate 50p to Help the Aged for every tiny bottle 'hat' that they receive. She proceeded to produce from a bag, lots of miniature works of art, all in different styles of knitting & was able to pass the necessary pattern details on to other members.
Other members had found other types of charity knitting to do, including trauma toys for the emergency services & teddy bears.
As a by the way, as well as Ann manning her craft stall for Farleigh during 'Tea at Three on this Friday, BBC Essex will be doing a broadcast from Phillers, so anyone who can come along will help, we might even get a plug.

I had a lovely evening and so did Kerrie because she's coming back next month! Great to have Jane and Cath back a second time and to meet Abbie - looking forward to next month!
BTW - have a good holiday Anne and we'll see you soon (with a stash of more F.Os I hope!)

Tracey - are you out there my dear?? Can you 'put the word on the street' about the next meeting. I tried to go on the Angelyarns forum but the will to live left me when I realized after the umpteen attempt that I have forgotten my username etc. Thankyou!
