Just wanted to say thank you for writing into Simply Knitting, if you hadn't written the letter and sent the picture in of the lovely 'go-over' that you made I would never have found this place, thanks :-)
Good Morning Alison and Happy Birthday.
I have seen all the work your Kelso group has been doing. When work gets quieter here I shall come and join you for a coffee and some knitting. Hope you have a lovely day.
I used to work from home for the RNIB everyone thought it must be great and that i had loads of time - not so, i never had a minute to call my own! so i know what you must go through.
My first meeting will be on Tuesday 2nd Feb 10-11am at the Ace Centre next to Border Ice Rink. I am hopeing Borders Radio will give us a mention on the whats on slot, fingers crossed. It would be great if you could come along even if its just the once. I think i will be having night mares the night before that no one will turn up!
Good morning Alison
My main trouble is my business commitments. I work in tourism in the winter months my time is my own really but I have no spare time in the summer months to commit to a group. They started free knitting/crochet classes here two weeks ago. The first week I was snowed in and this week I had builders here so I am trying for third time lucky and hoping to make Wednesdays session as although I have knitted for over 40 years I have never crocheted. There are some lovely tops on the KAS site that have been crocheted so I am inspired to learn. When is your first "Knitting group" meeting in Kelso as I would like to come to give you some support.
Welcome to our warm KAS community. It's great to see you. We hope you will enjoy the forum and your region's group.
There are lots of great discussions going on in the forum, including the monthly challenges.
We have a challenge every month, if you want to get involved please do. It's not compulsory at all but some of the work done is just lovely. Have a look at the November challenge - the SLIP-OVER (under challenges in the main forum) this will give you an idea of some of the fantastic work this community is doing for the children of South Africa. Here is a link to the November challenge photos:
Welcome to KAS! Everyone here on the forum is really friendly and happy to help with any questions you have, so please feel free to ask!
Hope you're not snowed in too badly - we didn't get much extra snow yesterday which was lucky as it's getting quite tricky to drive on our street. The positive side is that I've met people I've never spoken to before as we've helped to push cars and clear the snow so it's certainly helped to foster a neighbourly spirit! If you are snowed in, it's a good excuse to sit and make some squares!
KAS supplied blankets, hats, handwarmers and toys to over 5,500 children in 2017. If Ronda’s wishes come true, in 2018 even more children will receive the gift of warmth and love from around the world.
