Glasgow Woolly Huggers - who's up for a meet-up?

(88 Posts)

It's a while since we met up for cake and gossip and coffee and more cake knitting, so it would be nice to have a meet up soon, I think.

The days that seem to work best for people are either Mondays at the Burrell Collection or Wednesdays at the Tramway - so if anyone has any preferences, speak now and we will try to fit in round them.

We are a very friendly group, and it will be lovely to see new faces as well as the old ones, so if you are in the Glasgow area, like knitting and/or crochet, and enjoy blether, coffee and cake - please do come along and join us, when we have set a date, of course.

Mondays or Fridays for me (boo for work)

I might have to pass on cake for some celery as the diet kicks in. But will be there with bells on if I can make it!

I'm up for a meeting any time. Will have to forego the cake though as I'm on BIWI's BootCamp from tomorrow stuffs face with lovely moist home made Christmas cake in the mean time grin

Mon tues or (some) weds for me! Cake essential though. grin

Me!!!!

In my heart.

Have fun and good blether. Don't even know if that's the right use of the word. Have fun!

Blether = chat so yes correct use of the word pistey!

RatherBeOnThePiste Sun 06-Jan-13 21:07:20

One day I shall come and blether wine

HairyPotter Sun 06-Jan-13 21:26:58

You and knotty could be there in spirit! We could skype! I will take cake of your cake for you. <helpful>

Just let me know when, Pistey, and you can come and stay here. Knotty too.

I already owe Pistey a bed for a few nights. We can fight over her wink

Any closer on setting a date? Looks like Monday is the best bet. How about a week on Monday (21st)?

It would be good to catch up.

21st works for me!

21st would work for me too - at the Burrell?

prettybird Thu 10-Jan-13 15:47:55

Burrell was fine last time smile Wonder if I'll be able to get a low-carb lunch there but I could always bring a packed lunch that meets Boot Camp "rules" grin

They have a selection of salads, prettybird.

Does 11am suit people?

Yep fine with me! The did have a large selection of salad stuff, but I didn't pay much attention to it! Are there carbs in cake???

I have just started crocheting, would that qualify me for meet up even though I'm very much a novice? One of my new year's resolutions is to meet new people and socialise more so I'd love to join you all if that's okay? Date and time suit perfectly smile .

Of course biff! I only started knitting in February, so I'm very much still a novice too. Don't ask me abut crochet though, pretty and SDTG can whip you into shape though! smile

Excellent, thanks. I only started around October so really am a beginner.

prettybird Thu 10-Jan-13 16:38:53

I still can't crochet as I need a left-hander to teach me although Pistey keeps on giving my links to left-handed crochet tutorials

We call this Scottish Woolly Hugs meet-ups - but we tend to natter and eat cake more than we actually knit or crochet! blush

I did teach HairyPotter how to do cable though [proud]

Oh yes it was cabling y taught hairy! Not witchcraft crochet!!

It will be lovely to see you, Biff. I will probably be crocheting white granny squares for an Angel Hug - I can do a basic pattern, but I might strike out and try a slightly harder one - though the snowflakes I tried to crochet on Monday were not a huge success. blush

biff23 Thu 10-Jan-13 18:46:06

Daft question, I know, but do we bring our crochet/k sitting etc with us and is this how I will recognise you all a la red rose in lapel smile .

Yes to both questions, Biff. I will try to get there a bit early and bag a table with comfy chairs, and I will probably have my huge knitting bag with me (it's easier just to pick it up, lock, stock and barrel, than to try to decide what I don't need).

I will look forward to seeing you there!smile
