How is a girl supposed to lose weight at this time of year? Monday night was our Borders Knitting Club Meal at The Foxhunter Carvery at Enderby. Fifteen of us were there.
Some of us are unable to be separated from our knitting, wherever we are. Veronica brought her newly finished Cat Tea-cosy
[My pot continues to dribble, so I went and got one of these pots myself the next morning!]
Linda brought in a ball of yarn sent by a relative in new Zealand. It is possum!!
The ball band claims it is 50% possum fur, 40% merino wool and 10% silk.
It felt beautifully soft. I am not sure what she plans to make with it though!
We had a really good evening together, with lots of laughs, catching up on news and family plans.
We didn't realise that their festive fayre menu was just food, though. If we wanted crackers, they expected us to bring our own.
Having had a great meal on Monday night, I feasted again on Tuesday with the Ladies Fellowship from Church [plus a few gentlemen who came along as The Drivers!]
This meal was greatly enjoyed by the two dozen who attended, and the staff at The Windmill Inn, Brascote, were wonderful. We were not the only large party in, and yet we were well served with excellent meals. And crackers! [note the party hats!]
Today I shall be dining on a simple meal of home-made carrot soup. It was such fun to be able to celebrate with friends like this. Especially when someone else is cooking and clearing up.
After lunch today I am off to yet another Carol Service with Bob.
