But as this is ONE'S OWN blog one gets to bang on about Bowral as much as one wants.
Some important lessons were learnt.
Like:Don't believe women in bright checkered jumpers who say they are not really knitters.
And:It is true what the teacher says about the size of tea pots and being able to finish a cosy.
Even:Everyone loves a teddy bear, even grown up women. Especially grown up women.
Happily:Some women just keep coming back for more. Three of you didn't get enough last October.
Mostly:That knitting tea cosies, and knitting tea cosies together make us VERY HAPPY.
