Heather - I am getting quite excited about it now - and even having had my shelving unit in the small sitting room collapse under the weight of my books and magazines on there which has resulted in a bit of biblio-chaos has just been a bit of a set back and a chance to have a sort out  - so at least there will be one tidy area in the place :)

I have a list of names of people who are planning to be there who have let me know - some local ones will be popping in for an hour or so, others will be staying for the full event.

As well as you, Heather and Cath, Louise Tidman is coming and bringing two other ladies with her.  My Mum, Pat, will be there who you met last year.  Sharon will be coming along as well, who was with us last year. My Mum-in-law, Jackie, and Sister-in-law, Julie, will be there.  From my town there will be my good friend Linda, my friends Ann and Mariette, I hope that my friend Joan will be well enough to be with us, but she has been quite poorly recently.   A friend from on Facebook, Annec, will also be joining us.  Possibly a lady called Annette from my knitting group will be coming along for a while, and I hope that a neighbour called Sue will be able to pop in.  I think my son and my Dad will be keeping out of the way - though my son is able to both knit and crochet.  We may see them at lunch time!

You can see why I am hoping that we will get dry and pleasant weather - but if it is inclement we will all fit in - I will just open the rooms out to make a large room rather than two separate rooms.  I have let my close neighbours know there will be a few extra cars in the street that day :)

My husband will be away that day - but he is putting the gazebo up in the garden before he goes and we can open the Summer House as well.  

Yes, I would say that I am definitely getting excited about it!!

I'm going and also really looking forward to seeing everyone from last year and more besides.

I'm sooooo looking forward to Rebecca's toy-making event!
Do we have a list of who's coming so far? I'm hoping to meet up with a few friends from last year's  "KAS Big Day Out" in York, as well as meeting some new friends.

Re my toy event - 

As the event is coming up quickly now, I thought I would remind you that I would be really glad to have some notice if you are able to attend so I know how much food to make etc.  I have had replies from Melton Knitters, but also  people who have said that they will be there so far are from further afield. You are welcome to come for the whole event or just the morning or just the afternoon, whichever suits.

I shall have a pile of knitting magazines available in return for a donation towards postage costs. If anyone would like to take some away with you - please bring some change to donate,  :) As long as I can find which magazine has which pattern in, there will also be some toy kits to knit available.  

Please can you let me know if anyone has any allergies - I know of one attendee who has a peanut allergy so there won't be anything involving those around........

Rebecca, thanks for replying.do you think the gogo's will put the faces on if I send teddies...otherwise I will stick to hats and squares.tom often gets soft toys to put in with the squares.

Hi Rebecca - I'd love to join you on the 17th - please can you message me your address? It will be lovely to see you again!
