Introducing my knitting group

Here is a glimpse of my knitting group. I've taken this photo late into the evening so a lot of ladies already left. We could be 25 head strong in a good evening.We've started about two years ago in Borders book shop, the west quay area in Southampton . When Borders went bust last December we finally settled in the cafe at Ikea. We meet every Thursday from 6:00 pm until 8:30 pm. People are making an effort and coming here from Portsmouth, Christchurch , Winchester..we have ladies from France, Germany, Sweden..I like the fact that we have people from all ages and social backgrounds. We all differ but have one thing in common - the passion for the craft of knitting (and yes of course the crocheting).
You're all inspired me one way or another!!

Here is a Xmas present I've knitted my mom. Actually last year on a visit to Israel I've knitted the first version and it was snapped by my dear grandmother. It is proving very popular with my mates because it is quick, pretty and economic, only one skeins of Rowan cocoon. There plenty version on ravelry. The credit must be given to the designer Kim Seio. Here is my scarflet;
