Happy Holidays!

It's been a while since I've posted here, actually any where. I've been a little occupied with moving, Christmas knitting etc. Anyway, if you do happen to stop in here and are interested in contributing to this blog, are local to London (and area) please comment and let me know. Knit-London has many voices and I am sure there are some that have no interest in setting up a personal blog, but could be interested in a few posts here.

I've created a few little flyers/hand outs that I will bring to the forth coming Knit London meeting. As always, please feel free to spread word of our meeting on the 1st Monday of the Month at Coffee Culture on Dundas. Everyone is welcome; knitters of all levels, crocheters or crafter of any sort. The meeting can be for any one that would just like a night out with like minded peeps.

There were several attempts at meeting outside of the standard one last month. I'm sorry to say that we didn't wind up connecting, however I would still very happily post anything for anyone trying to get another meeting night arranged. I would very much like to do this more than once a month. I know that there are people that can't make Mondays - or downtown. Suggest away!

Hope you've all have a great Holiday and I hope to see you soon!

Hutton House

If you haven't started your Christmas shopping yet or if you just want to stop in and get something for yourself, this craft sale is not to be missed. The pottery is lovely and the weaving is to be gushed over.

I've honestly never been to this sale, but I've seen the products . .and I'll be there. So if you go and see me comin' watch out. I've got some pointy elbows.

BTW, the money goes to a great cause!

November Meet up

Not sure if anyone actually reads this or not. The next meet up will be tomorrow, Monday Nov 3. At Coffee Culture on Dundas. I'm sure that there will be a knitter/crafter or 2 starting at around 6.

Please join us. You can't miss us. And if you would like to learn, please feel free to come! We are a rather boisterous group so you may have to speak up . . but if we know you need help, we're there for you!

BTW, if you care to bring a non-perishable food item for the London Food Bank, I will be dropping off contributions made at the gathering.

September Meet up - new venue!

I haven't had much time to be on-line lately so I copied this from Kata's Ravelry post. If you have never joined us before, we are an informal group and openly welcome knitters or crafters of all levels and genders (yes, we's gots some boyz!). Please feel free to join us or check us out on Ravelry, under Knit London.



For the next Monday meetup (Monday September 1st) we are TEST DRIVING a new location… We’re going to meet up at COFFEE CULTURE on Dundas, at the corner of Dundas and Wellington… it is beside the Scot’s Corner, and across from the library entrance of the Galleria.

Parking is free after 6pm down the street (on Dundas, between Wellington and Waterloo… in front of the storefronts there). The meters are free after 6pm on weekdays and Saturday (free all day Sunday).

They are expecting us, and apparently can accomodate up to 60 people (their words).

See you all there!

Forest City Knit Club

Just an FYI that the Forest City Knit Club will be meeting tomorrow night (3rd Tuesday of the month, March 18th)! If you would like to join us for an evening as a guest, you are welcome to join us at:

Robinson Memorial United Church
1061 Richmond Street,
London, ON
Meeting starts at 7pm sharp and parking is limited!!

If you need directions, please click on the link above. They have a map on their web site.

The Forest City Knit Club has been meeting on the 3rd Tuesday of the month for years (possibly over 24) at various locations, but has called Robinson Memorial home for some time now. What originally was a smaller group of less than 15 has magically grown, thanks to word of mouth and Ravelry to a group of around 20+. We welcome guests to and new members (with a small annual fee) to come and join us.

Wortley Meet up - March 3/08

Behold! Photographic evidence that knitters will congregate in drinking establishments to . . . well, knit. LOL

I think we surprise the staff when we turn up. I got the impression that they thought we would either not turn up, or we would be a bunch of tea toddlers. We've proved them wrong on both accounts and we are growing!
Look at all those people! There were several new faces this month and by all means, if you know someone interested feel free to join us.

Meet up is: the 1st Monday of each month
Wortley Road House, Wortley Village, London, Ontario.
We meet at 7 pm, but some show up earlier.

Forest City Knit Club - Feb08 Meeting

The FCKC had their monthly meeting Tuesday February 19th. It was one of the largest gatherings that we have had due to the influx of members thanks to Ravelry. Even with the amount of people that we have taken into the fold it still remains a great group of knitters and always a blast.

Ok, so I only caught half the group via camera, but really how could one blame me? They was far too much laughter and mirth going on where I was sitting. Nadine on one side and this . . . .
. . . on the other. Dudes, we were both so freaking tired and had the giggles. We were accused of sneaking something into the refreshments we were served. Really, it was just the giggles, fueled by over tiredness and close proximity.

Giggles, knitting, conversation. It was a great evening!

First meet-up of 2008

Sadly I didn't take any pictures. But the turn out was excellent! Many Ravelry peeps and many non-Ravelry. I'd say the head counts was close to 20, far better than the 8 we had at the first meeting. Of course that was because of the snow storm.

It was great seeing and meeting everyone in person! If you happen to have any pics that you would like posted, please let me know!!
