Knit and Knatter







I have made a discovery.. what with our world of social networking and virtual time passing, it fits that to get anything done you need background company!

On reflection, perhaps this is a personal character flaw, I always studied best with company and over the years at school and uni came up with many study comradery adventures – in caravans, parks, cafes, sleepovers chewing actual coffee granules.. aah moment of appreciation for all you tortured students out there.

It was bliss to attend the recent Belfast council run Revamp workshops I wrote about here and here, not least because just pottering away in a room full of people doing the same thing was so comforting, social, inspiring.

So in a bid to reclaim a childhood skill I had a glorious girls night in to ‘Knit and Knatter’.













It really was a rare privelige to have both a relaxing and gratifying friday night after a long week..  sipping cocktails from a teapot ((i was served lately in a bar in Belfast to this effect) and catching up, whilst patting oneself on back for new skill acquired and that comforting feeling that should you find yourself shivering or naked in the future, you could yarn your way out of that predicament!










The next event, a ‘Pic – knit’. If you’re interested let me know! Extreme knitting ideas welcome..

    How decadent…look up my sister in laws webpage – skein queen. A business she set up a few years ago and now has her wool in the shop in that sail hotel in Dubai! Her friends meet in libraries and she has monthly knit clubs on line and a fantastic weekly blog. She has even gone into her daughters school and set up a knitting club. Trying to get her to come to Ballygilbert Christmas fair on 30th November. Must pass on the tip about the cocktails – that would go down well. x
