Guildford/Woking Slackers

September 16th, 2009 Comments off

Or is it Woking/Guildford Slackers?

In either case, it is a fun bunch who meet on Wednesday evenings for knitting, food, chat, beer, and of course, cider. The Guildford meet-up location is The Drummond. Traditional pub food was augmented by a couple of vegetarian offerings (I won’t try the lentil/spinach burger again – booooooring). Weeks alternate location between the two towns.

Other than the fact that the energy level made me feel old (heck, I think everyone but one in the group this evening is younger than my Eldest), a great time was had by all. Work stories, good humor and a lot of trading knitting help abounded.

Managed several more ridges on Pagode –

The back has been joined completely to the front and you can see the shaping that has been accomplished by the use of short-rows.

The only challenge that is getting me a bit worried is that I started this section of dark grey with 15 gm. I now have 8 gm left with four ridges to go. It is going to be close, really close.

Meanwhile – I started Long Spoon Lane by Anne Perry in audio. I like her writing style and the reader is the same from her WWI series. He is excellent, clear pronounciation (important for us non-UK people) and good pacing.
