First there was me then there was three!
We have begun. Though small in number, we had a thoroughly enjoyable dedicated knitting time away from other distractions (with the exception of chatting and a cuppa) . Wendy brought her knitting basket, overflowing with a 4 year old project almost forgotten. She dusted off the almost completed jacket for herself, worked out where she left the pattern and is re-energised to complete it. Go Wendy!
If we three are typical knitters, there must be many lounges out there with a corner devoted to a yarn stash begging to be crafted into lovely things. For Brenda, coming to iKnit meant deciding whether to dig into her stash or go shopping. She went with her stash (despite almost caving after looking through my patterns and discussing ideas) and combined two colours, a gentle lime green and cream DK, to knit a cute Peter Gregory baby jersey. Good call.
I came across an article a few weeks ago – ‘The Many Benefits of Knitting Circles’ by Lisa Akers, and think it’s worth a look.
Will remember to take a few pics next meet .
