Why is it...

...always the way?

When my boss visited last Tuesday, he decided to pop into the "Knit & Natter" group - to show his support.

25 minutes later, the only person who had dropped by was a member of my staff to ask what size crochet hook she should get so that she could learn how to crochet.

Our group is very informal and the idea is that folk can drop by as & when they wish during the 2 hour lunch break on the specified day...and it is normal for there to be periods when no-one is there but then a group arrive - a bit like London Buses LOL

So we chatted and then he had to leave for another meeting.

A few moments later, a couple of folk arrived with their lunch to sit and do some colouring. That got the ball rolling and in total we had nine attendees that day. I took this photo...
...just to prove to the boss that I don't sit there like "Billy no mates" for 2 hours every week.

We even had a new attendee. She has just changed job within the office and felt that she needed some time to just 'chill'. She is quite proficient at crochet so it was lovely seeing what she was making.

I wonder how many we will have this week.......................................................

I wonder if it was your boss that frightened people off (even if they are very nice!). Looks like you had a good group in the end though! Anne xx
