Before Elvis....

... there was nothing.

So said John Lennon. I was so immersed in my complicated lace shawl during our last get together that I forgot to take photos. With one exception. I managed to grab a snap of Barbara's latest creation - a finely worked cross stitch piece with beading. Isn't it great?

See you soon!

Winter = socks and mittens?

If you are thinking about knitting socks or mittens this winter, look no further - a beautiful knitted artwork that's made of both. How are you getting on with your new season knits? Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday:

Attack of the dinos...

I'd love to share pictures of us in the park during our picnic, knitting and nattering, enjoying the sun and brownies... it was a lovely afternoon. Great company and happy times. But I was so busy chatting, I forgot! But far better than a photos of all us is a picture of this lovely creature: Barbara's crochet dinosaur! Soooo colourful, so well made, so expertly crocheted... he looks right at home in the park, doesn't he? I guess he's a herbivore...

Brei picknick (and remember when?)

Remember this picnic?! Those were the days...

Morgen is het ons jaarlijkse brei picknick in het Maria Hendrika park. Wij komen samen om 14.00 en breien op her gras tot ongeveer 17.00. Afspraak punt: grote gras veld bij de water toren. Eigen versnaperingen mee brengen. Bij slecht weer, gaan wij naar het Koninginnehof (café in hat park).

Tot dan!
Helen en Barbara

The sun shone in Oostende for the annual KIP day gathering

 click on photos to enlarge

 Last Sunday (how time flies!), the sun shone on the annual Knit in Public (KIP) day in Oostende. We had a wonderful time in the Leopold Park, thanks to the sterling efforts of Rozemie and Rebecca. A huge thank you to you both, and to all the participants - here's to next year!
