Tramway Knitters to the Rescue
The Tramway Venue in Glasgow's South Side started life as a Tramway Depot (Big Shed for Trams!). Then when all the Trams were removed, it became the Transport Museum, when the Transport Museum removed, it became the Tramway Arts Venue. It now has the Hidden Gardens at the back , and I seem to remember when it first opened a Peace Tree had notes hanging from it, in honour of those who try to make the world a better place. Perhaps I should be hanging a note with my Knitting groups members on it , if that is still the custom. Our Knitting group has had a confusing and upsetting time of late, but I am glad to say that is now all behind , after the very positive meeting they had today. In all the confusion and distress, I forgot to show outward support for those that got hurt the most, and I am most sorry . The folks that go to this group are a great bunch of people, and I think they will now get the group they deserve. One of our members has even offered to sponsor the Website page, which is fantastic (wee minty aka nagged2k , see blog links!) Among the group there are Knitters (a given) crocheters, spinners, people who sew (I put sew-ers at first , but that looked wrong!), cross stitch etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. So not only do we learn to knit better from each other, but learn to crochet, spin , sew, craft, you name it ! And talking of knitting - back to the sock!
