>’In Stitches’ May meeting

>We had our second meeting tonight & it was fantastic. Nine people in all & we ended up with separate crochet & knitting huddles. One beginner absolutely wowed us all with her tension & lack of dropped stitches, another was knitting a black handbag, another a cardigan in a Rowan cotton, another finished a wonderful Colinette creation & I cast on for Fay two in the same Cork as Fay one.

It’s lovely to meet & chat with other like minded knitters & not to be seen as barmy, odd or weird. It’s a pity that the cafe closes at 8 p.m. as it could have easily gone on for another hour. We’re going to organise something for National Knitting week in October but I need to speak to the cafe manager before we can plan anything.
