Knitting & Martinis with Miss Mardi...

Knitting and Martinis session 1

(Liv doing great guns! Lauren taking a beer break!)

We held our first Knitting and Martinis group today and it was a great success! There was close to 15 people attending, all at different knitting and crochet levels but it sure was a lot of fun.

(lots of yarn and cheese platters to keep us going!)

(yeah! boys knit and crochet too!)

Some of our members started off on projects during the week in the hope of getting them done for Mother's Day tomorrow. David who has never crocheted before, got a bit of a helping hand from his staff at the MCC library in making a scarf (in Hawthorn football colours) for his mum.

John also was caught on camera making some great progress on his lovely cable scarf while enjoying a glass of wine too!

Our newbies were doing great guns on their garter stitch. My lovely husband Mark even took up the needles and was doing a great job at his 6 pack carrier which is knitted with double yarn then felted to a sturdy carrier - whilst looking very stylish!

A huge thank you to the crew at Baranows Lounge for allowing us a fabulous venue, great cocktails and also some yummy cheese platters too. If you are interested in joining us, we are meeting every 2 weeks on a Saturday at Baranows. Email me at missmardi@gmail.com to join in!

That looked like so much fun. Would never have thought to mix knitting with drinks and such a great crowd of friends.
