Last night, fortuitously coinciding with International Women’s Day, saw the first gathering of the Streatham Stitch’n’Bitch group (we plan to come up with a better name… Any suggestions?)
I was a little nervous: I’ve never been to a SnB before, and these were a load of ladies I’d never met before. In fact, in my 2 and half years living in London, this is the first time I’ve been to a social gathering at which I knew NO ONE.
But I needn’t have been nervous – the handful of ladies that at attended were lovely and incredibly cool.
We were of mixed abilities, but that was of no consequence – we sat round, had a drink, knitted and chatted. Amongst a group of relative strangers, we were very relaxed: knitting (and Streatham!) put us on level ground.
There were a variety of projects on the go – a scarf, a sock, a vintage cardigan, and even a knitted tie!!
I’m still working on that bloody jumper…
The Streatham knitters will meet every fortnight – the next meeting will be at Perfect Blend, at 7:30pm on the 22nd of March. If you want more info, please feel free to get in touch with Zoe at SWCraftClub. She has a Blog, Twitter, and a Facebook page.
