Knattering on About Knitting

The other morning on the BBC morning news, they did a segment on the whole “Stitch n’ Bitch” phenomenon. There were even knitters “knitting live” having created a hat and fingerless gloves in the time they were at the news station. It’s all a part of the popularity of the whole knitting craze. This reminded me that, although I recently found out there was one in a nearby pub on the first Monday of every month, I couldn’t make it last week due to being in Blackpool. And now it looks like I’ll be out of town to miss the December meet. With luck we’ll be back from our trip to the U.S. for the holidays in time for me to make the January Stitch n’ Bitch.

Knitting has become a strangely serious hobby of mine in the past few years. It would be nice to meet and make knitting friends. If the coffee shop on my High street was actually open after 5pm during the week, I might be inclined to start my own, mid month or something. But I’m inherently lazy and the coffee shops close early.
