Something new:-)

This week has been a flurry of new experiences!
On Tuesday, I went to my first knitting group in Costas in Morpeth. There were 4 of us there, and it was great fun, spending two hours just chatting knitting:-) We're going to be meeting once a month, probably at a differant venue next time as Costas was pretty noisy. Perhaps the back room of a pub if anyone will have us, but its all very exciting, and I'm sure I'll be a regular attender.
I've also made a start on the Deep v tank by Eunny jang, it's my first proper attempt at colourwork.

I did attempt the endpaper mitts last year, but my colour choice was a bit rubbish and so they are half knitted in a bag somewhere. I'm really enjoying the tank so far. It's coming along surprisingly quickly, and its much simpler than I had envisaged. It will be my first attempt at steeking too when I get that far, but the instructions look really comprehensive, so I'm sure I'll manage:-)
I'm going to work on the tank for a few days and see how far I get, Ii've done 25 rows of pattern already, and thats only since yesterday afternoon, so possibly a speedy FO!!!

The knitting group thing is good fun -we grew from five to ten pretty quickly -meet in each others houses as there wasn't an obvious after dark location in Harrogate.

Looking good, Mrs! I really like the colours you're using. Are you knitting it with the two-handed thing? And good luck with the steeks - I'm still shying away from that 'experience'!

Your tank is looking fab, lovely neat work. Your knitting club sounds like a fun chance to knit'n'knatter. Fingers crossed that you find somewhere more suitable for your next meet!

I have sent several e-mails hoping to get your address to send the monkey sock package, maybe they are going into your spam folder ?

It's great isn't it meeting as a knitting group. I hope it continues to thrive.

I haven't done colour work for years - your tank is looking lovely so far :-)
