Hi to all in Scotland. I am actually cheating by joining as I am a Scot who has lived in Cornwall for 23 years but having been brought up in Glasgow and still having family living there I thought I would qualify and I do love to read about all the familiar places and get ideas for woolgathering on my next visit!

That's not a problem, welcome to the forum.

 

I am originally from Inverness, and have lived both in England and South Africa but returned to Fife about 8 years ago, and we love it here.   I've been to cornwall too, such a lovely part of the UK.

 

What are you knitting at the moment ?

 

I've several projects on the go.

Hi Jayne, thank you for the welcome. Apart from squares of course, I am knitting hats for the Innocent  Help the Aged campaign (nearly 40 to be posted at the weekend), a beret in Crofter, a jacket for myself in Sirdar denim chunky, a crochet blanket with floral squares(from a Jan Eaton book) a cardigan nearly finished for my 3 month old grand daughter ........as you can gather I too tend to have lots of projects on the go at one time, though I am being very good about finishing things at the moment! I work fulltime nights as a nurse in a high dependency elderly care unit and I sometimes get time at work to knit/crochet (though sometimes I have to undo all I have done when I look at it in daylight!) My father was originally from Edinburgh but I don't know Fife as well as the west coast-whereabouts are you? I love living in Cornwall and walk on the SW Coastal Path a lot but I still miss the mountains, particularly at this time of the year.

Hi Charis

 

Fife is the dog shaped bit of the uk - we are in Glenrothes which is a fairly new town, it was built for the miners originally, how it provides housing for people travelling to work in Edinburgh.

We have a beautiful coastline called the East Neuk, and if you ever venture up here, it's worth a look.  St. Andrews beach is our favourite as the beach is huge and you can walk for miles on it.

We have a lot of Golf tournaments up here, every year and of course the RAF Air show, as we have a RAF base near us, although they will be moving out in a year or so due to a MOD decision.

I am a member of the Kirkcaldy Knitclub and we knit for ourselves and lots of charities, both in the UK and overseas, including Knit-a-Square.  We recently donated over 100 pairs of new socks for their latest appeal.

I have 3 children aged from 17 to 11 and a beagle.  I work part time at our local Barnado's as a volunteer, I am an Avon Rep and I also run a small leaflet distribution company, all this keeps me on the go.

I am knitting a hat for myself and a crocheted scarf, a hat for charity, squares for a dog blanket - we are collecting blankets to give to our local Pet Rehoming Centre.  I have a couple of things to sew up before we hand our items in for the next postal run.

We live on a hill which leads you to the East Lomond Hill - which is a good climb, I've not done it all but my son often does it.  It's nothing like Ben Nevis though :)

 

 

 

 

 

They have lovely yarns in the store called Rejects in Kirckaldy.  Definitely worth a visit as their Xmas stuff is in-store now.  Got lots Fabrics too.  I was there yesterday and going back soon.
Sounds good

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."
