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.

Yes to show off I usually don't get much done because I'm running after ds!

Excellent, looking forward to it. Better try to decipher a pattern now or I could stick with my wonky scarf!

Yay! 21st suits me too!

Pretty did teach me to cable. She was fab as I am very dim. Biff, can you teach me crochet? Many have tried but I think I am just too dumb blush

Bring on the cake. I'm happy to eat all the ones that you low carbers don't want. grin I'm nice like that.

Me too, Hairy - we are so self sacrificing, aren't we!

Lol hairy - I tried to teach my 10 year old dd but she ended up in tears!

I'll have a go at helping biff teach you to crochet, Hairy - we can tag-team.

It'll be good to meet you Biff smile. One of my New Year's Resolutions was also to make more friends - so we can help each other achieve that! Before last year, the only other Scottish Woolly Hugger I knew was STDG (who I'd met at a previous MN meet-up smile) but Hairy and Glaikit are also lovely smilesmile

I've just "semi-cold" emailed a mum from the rugby club as part of my resolution as we seemed to be on similar wavelengths. Still to arrange a time to have our coffee/wine - but she replied quickly very positively! smile

Well - you are a lovely person, prettybird, so I am not surprised she is keen to meet up with you.

Ooh err blush

You all snogging? i thought that was just us Southerners? grin

I have the sad handicap of having been born English, Pistey. I am bringing my nasty furrin habits to Scotland. grin

Aye these interlopers with their exotic ways! Bring on independence wink!

AIBU to think that, if Scotland is going to be independant, we should do it properly^ and dig a Channel between us and England? grin

Just build Hadrians wall again!

prettybird Fri 11-Jan-13 14:29:12

Where's a Facebook "Like" when you need one grin

GoingGoingGoth Fri 11-Jan-13 14:30:38

Erm moved up around October (from the other side of the border), may I come too? grin

GlaikitFizzog Fri 11-Jan-13 14:35:13

Sorry goinggoinggoth! Of course you are welcome to come! grin the more the merrier!

GoingGoingGoth Fri 11-Jan-13 14:37:29

Phew! Was starting to worry <desperately refreshing page after post>

We decided to move up before you lot shut the border! I can bring a shovel, if you need help?

GlaikitFizzog Fri 11-Jan-13 14:43:17

grin between you and me I can't see it happening. Devo max maybe, but not full independence. So you'll be ok!

Alas, I cannot do Mondays due to dratted work. Next time with luck, hope you're all well?

I have had an Idea. * Pistey* and Knotty should examine their social diaries, and try to find a window of opportunity for a visit or visits to Scotland - and when such dates have been found, we can plan a meet-up specially for them! Good idea, no?!

Blotted - we'll try to have the next one on a day you can do. Dratted work indeed - do they not understand how important gossipping and eating cake knitting is?? shock

Ooops - bolding fail. Pistey also needs to examine her diary (consult with her social secretary, perchance) to find a date for a visit. 2013 should be the year of the Pistey and Knotty Scottish meetups.
