Cafe Crochet - Taking it to the streets
Now, seeing as this blog is brand new, and nobody knows I'm here (except my husband and my daughter), I might be asking this to myself, but, how many of you take your crochet/knitting/crafting to the cafe/pub/other local establishment?
Since I have discovered crochet, I usually manage to stash my project in my bag (I tend to carry fairly large bags, just for purposes such as these).
I am on my own most days - I do have Izzy, but she is a dog - so I try to make a point of wandering down to the local cafe for coffee and meeting the world at large. Well, actually, it's not so large around here, I live in a small village, but you get the picture.
Anyway, last week, I was at the local cafe, sitting out in the sun with my coffee, when someone I sort of knew came over to see what I was doing. I discovered that there is a little sewing/knitting group that meets once a week in the local community hall.
I went last week. It's good to get out of the house and chat with other locals with similar interests. I'm going to make chocolate brownies to take tomorrow, healthy version of course.
