Penguins, Pom Poms & Partings

Tuesday 24 November was the end of an era, our final Shoreditch Sisters meeting at Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club and the last meeting before Christmas.

What better way to say adieu to our temporary home than with a Christmas Crafts extravaganza. Pom poms, penguins and printing was the order of the day. Turns out making wool Pom poms is slightly trickier than it looks, also if you forget to tie the cut strands together before removing the circles what you essentially end up with is a very long winded way of cutting wool into very short strands!

The penguin and gingerbread lady station proved popular, with people reluctant to leave without finishing their creations. There was some beautiful decorated paper at the other table too. Excellent work ladies.

There was almost a scuffle at the raffle table for Pride and Preju-knits… Rightly so, who wouldn’t want to knit their own Darcy? A lot of books at this months raffle, with a few Jaffa cakes thrown in at the last minute.

It was a great meeting to get everyone in the Christmas mood… If we don’t see you at the subgroups, we’ll see you in January. In our new home…The Book Club. On a new day… The second Tuesday of every month (don’t worry Knit & Natter will switch to the fourth Tuesday in its place).
