Last week I popped into Rosie’s Tea Room in Abingdon. I’ve been a few times before. It has an excellent range of teas & a lovely atmosphere. I noticed a few signs about a ‘Needles & Natter’ group starting today at 9am. You could bring along any of your crafty projects & natter while you work. Fantastic! I made a note in my filofax & planned to attend.

Needles and Natter at Rosies Tea RoomNaturally I arrived late (a fall out of no longer being governed by a bell!) & was met with smiling faces & a table covered in material & wool. I knew straight away this was my kind of event! I sat down & got my knitting out. (my current project is my 2nd commission – a black headband for a friend similar to this one.) Out came the tea & we were all talking about our latest projects, Twitter, jobs etc as the sun came out. It was a lovely way to start the day & I will definitely be back next week, hopefully with a different project on the go x

  1. Hello, just wanted to say no idea how you ended up on my twitter feed but I am so very glad you did. Just found your blog and I am loving that too. Just a quick question because you come from the same area as moi, where are some good local wool shops please, Masons obviously. I am a self taught crocheter with little experience. Many thanks and nice to meet you x

  2. Hi Kat! Thanks so much! Glad you like my little blog 🙂
    Have you been to Darn It and Stitch in Oxford? It’s really lovely there. There’s also a new wool shop in the North Parade in Oxford, but I haven’t been there yet. There’s a large knitting shop in Witney too but I mainly just stick to Masons!
