Post-Xmas... A new year for new knits!

Hi Guys!

As Erssie says, there isn't much activity here! Mind you, I suspect this is because there are only so many pictures you can take of the same group of knitters, and it not get monotonous, and not that many people are "contributors" to the 'blog! If you want to get connected to the team, please e-mail Erssie, who will be able to add you.

Over the last couple of Months, Angel Knits has become a small and intimate grouping, so I'm wondering where have you all gone!

Now, I know that Shane and Abi are off traveling, Anna K went off you University, as did Julie!

But there are 35 odd people on out mailing list, so you cannot all have found other things to do on a Tuesday night! :-)

So, just to keep you up to date about what's been happening...

The group has been small the last 3 weeks or so,which we can partly blame on the Xmas Aftermath... It is February now, so no excuses!

Last week, we had visitors from NWLondonKTog in the shape of Jill and Natalie, a lovely new person called Isobel, Ruth, Anna, and me! I learned Spiral Crochet, we nattered, drank, ate chips and stated until quite late.

This week, it was just myself and another newbie, Clara. Both Isobel and Clara found out about Angelknits via a 3-week knitting class at Loop! which is all good stuff.

See some of you all next week I hope!

Hey Angels

No new posts since 15 Nov and that was mine! I have been in New Zealand since 2 December 2006. I am back now and have a lot of paid work going for knitters to knit up other people's designs for a variety of publications. If you would like to share the work with me and get paid for our knitting then have a look on my blog Skeinspotting - A World of Erssie Knits at

Do let us know what you have been up to. If you are not familiar with loading up your adventures to this blog, then email me send Word docs and jpegs and I can load up your text and photos for you. We must keep in touch with each other and fill the blog with interesting things. For those of you with blogs and websites of your own, put up the links or on this blog or send me the blogs.

I am thinking about starting a visitors' book for Angelknits so that you can log your name and put down your contact details (not everyone has an email or blog address), current WIPS,FO's and any other knitting news on a Tues night. It will alleviate the problem of endless photos of people knitting without any text or info.

Hopefully it will help me at least to learn some names of people I speak to regularly whose names I don;t know or have forgotten. As a start, here is a pic of me, my name is Erssie.

Looking forward to seeing you or hearing from you
