May KTogs (Ely and Cambridge)

Here are the May dates/venues. Note both plans A and B for 17th May (we had, in fact, planned to meet in the Granta bar, as we did for our Saturday meeting in April, but 17 May just so happens to be the FA cup final and we think that there may be rather a lot of footy fans wanting to see the TV...)

Thu 1 May: The Lamb, Ely, 7-9pm
Tue 13 May: Granta Bar, Ground Floor, University Centre, Granta Place, off Mill Road, Cambridge, 7-9pm
Sat 17 May: Plan A: if fine, we’ll be knitting next to The Mill Pond (aka Laundress Green). Do bring rugs/blankets/cushions. Plan B: if wet, head for Grads Cafe, top floor, University Centre. Both venues are accessible from Granta Place, off Mill Road Cambridge. 2-4pm
Thu 15 May: The Lamb, Ely, 7-9pm
Tue 27 May: Cambridge Blue, Gwydir St, Cambridge, 7-9pm

Twelve Go (Yarn) Mad in Norwich

Saturday's trip to Norwich was huge fun. Here we are at the bus stop on the UEA campus (where we were entrhalled, inspired and amused by the exhibits in the Cloth and Culture Now exhibition). Note the eager excitement on our faces as we gleefully consider out next destination... Left to right: Mona, the top of E-J's head, Deborah, Jayne's head, Bekki, Carole, Jackie (almost completely concealed by the bus stop), Claire, Manda, Heather and Jen.

And here we are, two-and-a-half hours later, standing in front of Norwich Station: note the addition of brown paper bags full of swag from the wonderful Norfolk Yarn (where we were overcome by the irresistible urge to buy lots of Noro and many other tempting things)
From left to right we have Claire, Mona, Deborah, Jayne, the top of Heather's head, Bekki, Jackie (very kindly holding my yarn, as well as hers), E-J, Jen, Manda and Carole. You can just see some rather luscious Hummingbird Alpaca peeking out of Carole's bag.
