KNITTING GROUP: The new season of shows and exhibitions is well under way now. Two regulars in the group went to Unravel at Farnham Maltings at the weekend and were enthusiastic at the range of yarn and accessories on show. Too easy to spend money was the verdict. The main talking point at the meeting was a report from Christine and Marie who had been to a Fair Isle class and had learnt about steeking. That’s a term applied to preparing and then cutting knitting done in the round, to fit in button bands, zippers, or sleeves. It sounds drastic to cut through worked stitching, but the samples they had worked had very neat finishes. The group meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at the Kings Head, at 7.30pm. Come along, or for information phone Su (07552 229473).
