happy silver anniversary Knitters' Guild of NSW

This year is the 25th anniversary of the Knitters' Guild of NSW (Inc). I spent Saturday working on the Guild stand at the Quilt and Craft Fair. I was teaching knitting and, ahem, crochet to one left-handed woman. I taught two absolutely beginners to knit which was quite a thrill. All the participants were making flowers - two rows of crochet from 25 chain stitches or ten rows of knitting, some sewing up and it was all done! Unfortunately I forgot to take any photos of the flowers!

But I did take some photos of parts of the Guild stand - a job well done, everyone.
