I have recently taken up knitting/crochet again after almost 25 years of not considering it as anything worthwhile. I had forgotten how wonderful it feels to make something with my hands. The skill is slowly coming back, things I learnt in primary school are still with me somewhere deep. That was one of the best new discoveries I made upon embarking on this new-old journey.
Knitting is keeping me sane in tumultuous times and the brain is refreshed with the simple mathematical pattern finding exercises. I am now committed to enthuse about this new found almost meditative experience. The first step is this blog and the adjoining club.
If you are interested in knitting, creating beautiful things with your hands, working with well produced and ethically sourced materials then this is the club for you. You don’t need to know anything, just bring along two pointed needles, a small ball of yarn (preferably non-acrylic) and a warm persevering attitude.
We meet fortnightly at the Faulkner pub in Hoole. Every 1st and 3rd Monday at 7.00 pm. Do join us.
