Mr Ray Savage was the winner of our raffle prize at the Walkern Fair for a free Knit and Chat session. Due to work commitments he was unable to come during the day, so joined us for Knit and Wine last Tuesday evening.
He doesn't normally drink wine, but accepted a glass of rose and Linda crocheted him a pint to make him feel a bit more at home. Ray chose some fetching pink wool and Linda taught him to knit.
Ray services farm machinery, so we commissioned some tractor socks, hand knitted by Mary Miller.
It was a great evening and a huge success. Ray felt very honoured to be the only chap at Knit and Wine and he kept us in stitches all evening. He has offered to show Linda and I how to change a tractor tyre in return.
We moved on to the White Lion pub afterwards, so Ray could have a real pint. He did another row to prove to his mates that yes, he can really do this.
