A knitty weekend. On Saturday Cambridge KTog had its monthly afternoon meeting at Grads Café - there were 18 of us in all, the highest number I've seen! We more or less took the place over... Various people there including Becky, Lyndsey-Jane, EJ and Jo; EJ, Jo and I dropped in to see KTog founder and organiser Rosie (who was working) on our way to a wine-bar afterwards; returning from a 2pm knitting meeting at 7:30 felt pleasantly decadent... And it's always good to know that Little Sainsbury's on a Saturday night is as hellish as it ever was, Sunday opening or not.
On Sunday I spent most of the day dyeing yarn - more pics this evening, once I've wound things off into skeins again; the one above is a skein of nylon ribbon which came out duller than expected but very nicely... the struggle with ribbon is always how to stop it turning into a mouse's nest.
And speaking of which: every night I stretch out the nice soft crocheted doormat; and every morning it's turned into a Nest. If I made another one of these and put it somewhere which was actually comfortable, i.e. not right in front of the back door, what are the odds that Amelia would use it as a bed?
