it's been a while!

Well, I've been away for a while. Lost my mojo as you know, but I think it's coming back slowly. One thing that's really helped me is starting a knitting group with the Ravelrers of Athens. I had an idea to meet a couple of like-minded knitting addicts over a coffee every now and then. Twenty turned up to the first meeting! We even had a lady from Salt Lake City joining us, while holidaying here in Greece!

I really couldn't have been more delighted with the turn out or to have met a nicer bunch of girls. I think we all got really inspired talking to each other and fondling each other's stash ;) We really all had a wonderful time at central Athens alternative cafe Pure Bliss, right in the heart of LYS land.

And we're going to do it all over again next month. So if you happen to be in town, why don't you join us! We'd love to see you!

Alexandra, in between Eve and Maria here, has also started a knitting group up in Thessaloniki. Get in touch with her here if you are going to be in that neck of the woods!

Many thanks to Eve for the photos!
