CHRISTMAS CATCH UP!

PPQ-Christmas-Party-2014-Catch-Up

As it is Friday and only 12 days until Christmas we thought what better way to look forward to the weekend and Christmas get togethers than with a little look back at the fun we had at the PPQ Christmas Party last weekend.

Thanks to all those who came and joined us for an evening of knitting and yarn stroking set to a back drop of music from the amazing Theo Bard.

Whilst Theo kicked off the evening, knitters were able to indulge in a bit of Christmas Shopping in the Pop up Indie Yarn Market.

We were pleased to be joined by the lovely Kettle Yarn Co, Lioness Arts, Plant Dyed Wool, Purl Alpaca, and Claire of Yellow Bear Wares, who was joining us for her second craft fair of the day!

Amid the lively music and yummy cocktails there was plenty of catching up with knitting friends old and new, and the WIPs came out, including a sprinkling of Pom Pom projects that we spotted on the go!

After several Ginchellos, some grazing of the cheese boards and a few rows of knitting it was time for the eagerly anticipated Raffle Draw.
