I Knit London

Last Thursday I joined the I Knit London group who were meeting outside at the National Theatre to take in some Freddie-Mercury-tribute juggling (don’t ask; it was kind of funny though). I Knit London is a nomadic knitting group who meet twice monthly at venues all across London. This time there wasn’t a huge turn out, but I am reliably informed that this was due to the fact it wasn’t in a pub; the people there however were lovely. I went with Louise and we both took the opportunity to knit our blue squares for the Knit a River Campaign, which was started by Gerard Allt, (also the founder of I Knit London).

This was, for me anyway, a really nice way to meet people and knit. I liked the fact that knitting was just something that brought us together to convene in a particular location, and, although we did talk about knitting a lot, it wasn’t the be-all-and-end-all of our existences! I definitely plan to go again.
