It's time for some owlettes to venture over the great Sydney divide and head OTB (over the bridge) this week. As some Owlettes who live in this mysterious place can attest, it's not that bad... actually it's quite livable ;) In the tradition of Yarn in the Pub, we will be meeting at 6.30pm at The Oaks Hotel, corner of Military and Ben Boyd Roads, Neutral Bay (www.oakshotel.com.au/) It is a huge hotel, so I recommend that we all meet in the 1936 Bar which is located on the street corners of the whole pub complex and has lots of comfy couches. There are mussels and gourmet pizzas to eat as well as delicious jugs of Pimms and White Sangria for those who like a tipple. But beware mixing alcohol and knitting as this might happen:
It is incredibly easy to get to from the city. Just catch any bus leaving Stand A at Carrington Street, Wynyard and get off at the first stop after getting off the Harbour Bridge - this will be in front of the Big Bear Centre and The Oaks is just next door. Simple! (If you get lost, please feel free to call 0410 452 511 for directions.)
This week we'll be teaching those who don't already know, how to knit. In my case, I'll be looking to learn how to knit something more than a scarf - after all, an owl can only have so many. And for those who are already knitting experts, please just bring your own project and some of your expertise to help those owlettes who are just starting out.
Speaking of which, a new owlette who joined us for the first time last week, Chloe, was so inspired by learning how to crochet that she has already started blogging about her crochet experiences. Check out what she has to say at: http://chloerobot.wordpress.com/ With such enthusiasm, I know it won't be long before she is getting inked up with something like this:
So now that the weather has calmed down we hope to see as many friendly faces at our next Brown Owls meeting as possible. Please RSVP to this event in the comments section below.
