Knot Just Knitting

The sun was shining and we had a delightful little Knit & Natter meeting this month. All of the important issues were discussed: the Conservative’s extension to right to buy, knitted dogs, the eternal love we have for First Dates and what Chloe Fox’s WI would look like…

Hey! So what crafting are you doing?

It’s a copy of someone else’s drawing of a bird for the Liberty quilt the Sewing Bee are involved in – I’m really behind schedule!

Literally just this minute you have ousted our benevolent leader Jodie from the top spot and become President of our fine and upstanding branch of the Women’s Institute! Bloody go you. So I know you have organized an absolutely killer main meeting for this month. It’s going to be in amazing new venue: where is it?

A beach in Bali

And we’ve got ourselves a new bar person: who is it?

Jamie Dornan. A naked Jamie Dornan… Yeah a naked Jamie Dornan.

Phew, well I think I need a drink and it’s your round: what are we having?!

Pina Colada! It’s the ultimate beachy drink especially when it’s delivered by Jamie Dornan

Wooaahh and this party is catered! What are we chowing down on?

I don’t do the veggie stuff so definitely having meat. Maybe a barbecue with loads of types of meat, maybe some prawns. And… erm… peppers for the veggies?

We have an amazing speaker: who is it and what are they chatting about?

Joanna Lumley on how she has become so successful without compromising herself!

Sounds like a great talk but it’s time for the dessert trolley! What’s on it?

Gooey chocolate torte, cheesecake, marshmallows, Victoria sponge, profiteroles, the whole shebang, lots of cream… served by Jamie Dornan.

For the second half of the meeting we are learning a new skill: what is it?

I’m really into Masterchef at the moment so those twits that present it will come and give us the challenge to cook for the Gurkhas!

After feeding all those gurkhas we have the raffle and OMFG you win it. What did you win?!

World peace. Is that a sh*t answer? No, I’m sticking to it.

Wow, great prize. At the end of the meeting you’ve got one piece of advice to pass on: what is it?

Be nice and life is too short to not drink alcohol.

Excellent advice! Thanks so much for sharing your meeting with us. It’s been totes emosh!

The next Knit & Natter will be held at Leon in Spitalfields Market on Tuesday 12 May at 6:30pm. Pop along!
