Better get a move on!

Its all go here just now, only a week until the Summer Holidays to Majorca! Yippee!
Finally got the PIF gift finished - here it is in its knitty home of Cafe Flava!
And has now safely arrived in its proper home now - see here So glad you like it Tash, have fun with the knitting!
And in an effort to finish some summer knitting before the holidays, I've been out to my knitting groups! One needs encouragement !
Last Thursday evening was Flavaknits night, and thank you all, ladies, for your words of encouragement that helped get the PIF cpmpleted on time! There was an abundance of finished knitty items this week - First up is Marions cotton beaded cardi, pattern from Rowan RYC book.
Sandi pointing out the positioning of certain beads which made us all giggle (we're schoolgirls at heart!)
Gale is wearing her lovely Jamieson & Smith yarn cardi, and Moira has her finished stole. Karen is busy finishing socks in a lovely red colourway! (NDS yarn I think)
And not forgetting Val - starting another sweater, but with her nifty needles it'll be done in no time!
Then on Sunday afternoon, it was a quick trip up to Tramwayknits for a few hours of knitty fun - its a dirty job but someones go to do it!! lol
Nan was telling us all about the little joke she played on her mum - she got on old photo of her mother knitting , had it printed on to a T-shirt (Marks and Spencers, good quality!), with a quote! She showed her mum the T-shirt and claimed she found it in a Charity Shop ! (Vintage , darling, Vintage!), her mum commented on the quality, and on her daughters good luck at finding such a great bargain until it dawned on her that the photo looked familiar..... Apparently her face was a picture!! - 'scuse the pun . Here it is below, what do you think ?
For those of you who require reading glasses (I admit!) , it says, "I'm telling you ... one day this will be cool ", and the small print says "and you will thank me!"
Good , eh?
Catherine had been trying out her Knitting Knancy, bought at the SECC earlier in the year, along with some gorgeous beads, and made these lovely necklaces and bracelet - Alice had just pulled her hand away as she tried to pinch the bracelet!
And last week, Patsy was still knitting this lovely stripey jumper, now it is an FO! So cute.
Now there were a few more lovely FO's from Maggie and Gloria , but I'm saving them for next time - lets just say "Do you believe in Fairies? (hehehe, its a clue) . Oh yes, and Maggie found a naked baby doll in the cafe to model her FO's! ITs a funny old world .
And in between all these knitting groups , it was WWKIP day (WorldWide Knit in Public) I met up with Karen at Cupcake Corner, and attempted a few rows, although Jnr Junior had other ideas! Then on the train into and out of Glasgow I attempted a few more !
Its been quite a Knitty week!

What a lovely bag you made your PIF friend! No wonder she loves it. I was creased up at Nan's T-shirt..that was so funny.
All these pictures of knitting groups makes me wish I was a member of one. Oh wait, I am! Must get myself along to a meeting soon before I am forgotten!
Have a lovely time in Mallorca if I don't speak to you before. x K
