And a seriously banging coffee machine [thumbs up]

YeGodsDidTheDrWhoThemeTune Tue 26-Nov-13 12:19:16

Great name!

Mine's a skein of bamboo/silk tops, cheers!

Do you think if someone snogs Tech in the right way, we could get this as a topic that allows pics?

I just pm'd for the current Hug.

YeGodsDidTheDrWhoThemeTune Tue 26-Nov-13 12:20:34

Oh go on then, I'll have an americano. Just one shop and lots of room for milk (2 extra jugs of cold, please).

YeGodsDidTheDrWhoThemeTune Tue 26-Nov-13 12:21:50

Tech might allow pics if we promise not to snog him (or at least promise not to show anyone those pics.)

Ooh - are we going to be knitting/crocheting under the affluence of incahol? Goody! grin

We may need to do a Risk Assessment grin

I have assessed it. There will be Risk. End of Risk Assessment. grin

KnottyLocks Tue 26-Nov-13 12:32:20

Considerably more fun!

TheNinjaGooseIsOnAMission Tue 26-Nov-13 12:39:15

oooh too early for gin? grin or possibly a large pot of tea and naice biscuits <tries to be sensible>

RatherBeOnThePiste Tue 26-Nov-13 12:39:46

Never too early for gin Ninja!

RatherBeOnThePiste Tue 26-Nov-13 12:40:09

<still clattering>

KnottyLocks Tue 26-Nov-13 12:45:48

I sure we could manage a few leetle pastries.

Opheliabumps Tue 26-Nov-13 12:47:24

Ooh no, never knit and drink, esp if you're doing a complex pattern. i've lost count of the number of carefully crafted items I've had to unravel as I've gone wrong somewhere after a glass or two of wine.

Strangely, I find the same thing happens when I combine complex knitting with Only Connect grin

Plain knitting only when drinking or thinking is my motto grin

KnottyLocks Tue 26-Nov-13 12:51:18

Oh yes, the Granny is my fallback tipsy pattern smile

Opheliabumps Tue 26-Nov-13 12:51:24

Are we too early for mince pies/mini stollen bites? I happen to have a box or two if the stollen things stashed away, i highly recommend them.

RatherBeOnThePiste Tue 26-Nov-13 12:51:52

I'm not snogging Tech for anything it must be said grin wine

I'll snog Tech. <<takes one for the team>>

GoingGoingToGallifrey Tue 26-Nov-13 12:59:01

<spies cosy armchairs in corner by roaring fire>

Oh yes, that will do lovely. I think this weather calls for a mulled cider, but I may end up with a wavy pattern in my next set of squares.

rubycon Tue 26-Nov-13 13:00:07

I'll have a big one <not fussy>

Opheliabumps Tue 26-Nov-13 13:16:56

Mulled cider? Mmm that sounds nice, what spices do you use? Saw a recipe for hot sloe gin the other day, I'll be giving that a try over Xmas <hic>

Woolfey Tue 26-Nov-13 13:26:54

ooh I'll have a hot winter pimms please, and a hot crumbly mince pie to go with it smile

TheNinjaGooseIsOnAMission Tue 26-Nov-13 13:28:59

hot sloe gin you say, hmm may have to investigate!
