This week has been abuzz in Bendigo with the Australian Sheep & Wool show getting into full swing. Lots of people getting their knit on, buying up big and having a ball….
I, however, was in Sydney and unable to attend.
So back in March, my husband suggested I have a few people over for a lunch or afternoon tea for a bit of a knitting/spinning circle. So I put it to my Ravelry friends and the idea was warmly received.
So warmly received it was, that by June, the number had far exceeded my ability to host the event. So I was on the hunt for a suitable venue.
Thankfully not too far from me is a great Cafe, with lots of natural lighting, good staff and great food. Cafe Birkenhead was very accomodating, with very helpful staff who were adept at keeping up with our food and beverage orders, given we kept changing seats to chat.
I took one photo all day, but thankfully other attendees/bloggers were better at taking photos than I. 1FunkyKnitWit did a great job, and a wonderful post over on her blog.
We were there for about 5 hours, and had such a good time that it flew by!
Thank you to everyone who came and made it a brilliant event. We will do it again soon!!
