Spring Shower Skeins of Salutations to you People of the Knit
We hope that this newsletter finds you well, chilled out from a sunny(ish) Bank Holiday of knitting instead of working (though some of you don’t need an excuse and do that anyway), and recharged for some pre-summer purling action.
Spreading the ever-growing word of the knit has become a bit much for myself and Laura to handle. As you can imagine knitting up a weekly stash of knitting news, arranging meetings, inducting newbies into the way of the stitch, knitting for giant beasts, saving the world one stitch at a time, and doing it all for free, is not easy. Especially while working full time too.
So last week saw the first meeting (translate as wine and dim sum) of the new team who will lead you through the world of stitch and string.
The new S&B London Stitchettes are: Laura P “Purl Princess”, Lauren O “Deadly Knitshade”, Joelle F “Knitting Ninja”, Laura D “Lady Knitsalot”, and not forgetting Candice L “Go Go Garter Girl”.
We aim to:
We hope you will all stick and stitch with us. Wave farewell to the Skull and Cross needles. On Monday the 21st of May a brand new S&B London will arrive. Woo hoo!
On to this week’s news:
Details of the next meeting:
It’s been a long while since we’ve been back to the wonder that is Leon at Spitalfields. Now the weather is warming up a bit we thought we would return. Grab yourself a chair, show us your stitching, order something that is good for you and yet tastes like it isn’t, marvel at the fact that the menus are all pasted into old 80s annuals, and learn to love Leon. Also it is the day before Laura's birthday, bring on the cakes!
Tel: 020 7247 4369
Details of the meeting after next:WEDNESDAY 23rd May
Time: From 6 PM
Venue: The Silver Cross
Address: 33 Whitehall
But on top of that Wendy is going to walk 26 miles around London on the Moonwalk to raise money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer. And you can WIN some gorgeous yarn just by sponsoring her. Just remember to put PRIZE DRAW in the message when you donate and you can win.
You can also buy

creations to help her raise money too. So you can feel good about yourself
be in with the chance to win. Win-win situation really. :)
You possibly already love Knitty’s knitarama of pattern heaven, their easy-to-follow instructions, their penguin toy, their penchant for the unusual but lovely. In fact it is possible you have a few proudly constructed Knitty.com creations in your life already. Lucky you.
But how about getting even luckier? Not only do you get to wear them, you can also win with them too. Knitty is back for the third year with its Knitty 2008 Calendar contest! The best of them will be on the cover of the calendar for all to see, and the runners up will fill the innards. And what do you win? Well as Knitty says “get some seriously fabulous knitworthy stuff”.
What are you sitting there for?! Get knitting and snapping! The deadline is August the 17th 2007. Which may seem like aaaaaages away, but remember how long your Christmas knitting took to get just right? Yes, we thought so…better cast on now, eh?
