Saturday's stash swap in pictures!

Twenty-four yarnaholics (and one baby), this must have been our highest-ever turnout. And the most amazing goodies were being swapped: yarn, magazines and books (but not babies).

How many will there be for our 5th birthday party?! (Plans are underway, if you've any suggestions, just shout!)

5th birthday party?

I've just trawled back through the archives of Yahoo's UK Handknitters group and realised that the first ever Cambridge KTog was on 19 March 2003 when about half a dozen of us descended on The Eagle.

I think we should celebrate! Any ideas on what/when/where?

Fri 14 March & Sat 5 April.

I'll sort out train times etc in the next couple of weeks. Watch this space!

anyone fancy an awayday (Norwich)?

There's a rather interesting exhibition coming up at the Sainsbury Centre in Norwich and I wondered whether anyone would be interested in a group visit (possibly also taking in Norfolk Yarns (for such tempting brands as Noro, Louisa Harding, Colinette).

We could travel by train from Cambridge (via Ely, so there'd be connections of sorts from Waterbeach and March) then we'd have to take buses in Norwich. (Rather wonderfully, if going to Norfolk Yarns, the stop you ask for is "Mecca").

I'm thinking of March/April and days that I could do are Weds, Fri and Sat. Would be quite happy to go twice (one Saturday, one weekeday!)

The exhibition also has some intriguing sounding workshops coming up.

Interested in coming? Leave a comment here!
