Snow Day post knitting

No Stitch & Bitch this week due to the city experiencing post snow commuting trauma. Rather sad as I was looking forward to swapping survival stories. To make up here are some photos from last week’s S&B at The Make Lounge in Islington.

S&B at Make Lounge

Tucked away in Islington is a gorgeous little craft haven. The Make Lounge runs craft workshops, parties and all type of other crafty goodness. I was rather excited to see that they do hire out studio space, handy for projects that will need a sewing machine or a cutting table, yay!

In other news, I finally sewed buttons on my Tilted Duster from last year. The buttons ended up costing more than the actual yarn, but rather pleased with the overall result. My sewing up was rubbish, but the alpaca was very warm and the fit was perfect to my surprise. It can probably do with a second blocking, but maybe next time.

Bit of ribbing

Snippets from last night’s Stitch N Bitch at the National Theatre.

On seeing a group of knitters in the Long Bar..

Man: “Are you a mother’s circle?”
SNB: “No, we are knitting circle”.
Man: rather perplexed. “Are you a mother’s group?”

Seemed like he was expecting an affirmative regardless what the answer was. In which case, I for one would like to apologise for our inability as knitters (regardless of gender) to simultaneously fall pregnant while holding knitting needles because everyone knows that anyone who knits in public in large groups must surely be making baby booties for their bun in the oven.
