The Morris and Sons Knitting Group had afternoon tea at the Harrowgate Tea Rooms yesterday. Great fun! Friends, knitting, three kinds of tea, sandwiches (with crusts cut off, of course), scones with jam and cream, tiny cakes, chocolates, and lots and lots of bubbly to drink.
Our Christmas get-together was initiated by bossy-boots Fee [looking very Frida Kahlo-esque in her blue embroidered dress and exuberant headpiece]
and splendidly organised by Lee (ravlink) [resplendent in his Emerald Gleam scarf]
There were knitters from near
[Kris looking as if she's stepped out of 'Stepford Wives']
[Margarita (ravlink) - and Kelly)
and knitters from far
[Jane, who had to travel over the Harbour Bridge from the darkest north shore to join us]
[and Ailsa, who came all the way from wicked Wollongong]
We had a fun gift-swap
for which I crocheted (yes, miraculously, I crocheted) a bird.
And, most wondrously, we were honoured by a visit from the real Rose Red Shoes.
