Leftover-Easter-Egg-Chocolate-Cornflake Cake Flavoured Greetings to You People of the Knit
We hope that this newsletter finds you very well, and that you are feeling summery enough to start knitting some kind of ‘just something I knitted up to ward off the evening chill while sipping wine on the terrace’ shawl, wrap or poncho.
This week’s meeting in the tourist-drench middle of Covent Garden was a musical affair with several of us accompanying the show-tunes singing busker (some nice Joseph chorus singing there), small homemade treats being wolfed thanks to our newest newbie, and pipe-dream plans of a S&BL weekend away being batted around.
This weekend is the London marathon. Hats off to all the people who run it. But hats off even more to Susie Hewer who is running it knittingin aid of The Alzheimer's Research Trust! Yes, you heard us right. She is running and knitting! The lady is a marvel.
We are teaming up with Cast Off knitting group to support her by meeting up and waving our needles at her as she passes by.
It would be great if you could make it along to cheer her on, meet some other knitters and witness a London tradition if you haven’t before.SUNDAY 22nd April

That is all the news we have for you this week. Sorry about that. Normally there are links to click, pics to look at, and fascinating knitting bits get your needles into, but we have no time at all in this week. So we promise a better one next week. For old newsletters (which were much more informative and humourous) click here .
Hope to see you all Sunday at the marathon, or if not then at QEH. Welcome knitting newbies (and special welcome to FridayCities knitters who seem to have joined in force this week).
Happy knitting and remember to stretchStitch and Bítch London
