Stitch and Looking back at
another year of S&B London
This year has been
another great one for S&B London and it's all down to you lot,
that's you! We'd like to thank everyone that has read
enjoyed the newsletter, as well as those who supported us by coming
along to the groups and helping us teach the hundreds of newbies that
have attended in 2008.
This year we knitted
at a plethora of venues including a bowling lane, on a dimly lit boat,
in pubs, theatres, tiny tea shops, a very grand house and in the park.
Babies have been born
and conceived (not during the group!). We hosted our annual Knit Crawl
in style and made a stack of money with the Breast Cancer Care Blanket.
The knitting world
was set alight with great events as the Crochet coral reef came to
town, the Ravelympics gave us all a run for our money and Ally Pally
and I Knit Day were great successes.
The lovely people
that bring you S&B London, the Stitchettes, had a busy year with
Laura 'Purl Princess' Parkinson getting hitched and spending a
year as Knitting Magazine's Purl About Town.
Amongst all this the
Stitchettes bought you the knitting news, organised 50 meetings, taught
hoards of newbies and had a most fabulous time doing it. Lets give them
Lauren 'Deadly Knit-Shade' O'Farrell came back from
France and then
went off to India to find her inner knitter.
Stitchette Candice 'Go Go Garter Girl' Lamb left the fold to
publishing dreams and we were joined by the amazing Annisa 'Dr.
Stitchlove' Chand and Jenny 'Startitis' Steere.
And finally Joelle 'Knitting Ninja' Fink has just returned
qualified to teach foreign languages abroad, so who knows where the
wind will take her in 2009.
