Anyone is welcome to drop in with their knitting for this highly informal session of knitting, chatting, listening and watching the presenters at work.  Headphones are provided for listening to the broadcasts.  Beginners are welcome and Jane has prepared several sets of needles with the beginnings of a garter stitch scarf ready for people to have a go.   We do appreciate that this is very short notice but if any of you can make it, that would be great.  The RFH is 6 minutes from London Waterloo  and just across the river from Charing Cross Station.
