Knit Club.....

Fridays are my most  absolute favourite day ...knitting club x

Heres where the magic happens....

Follow the knitted bunting....
To the handcrafted open sign and step inside, into another world.

I am not a knitter but teaching myself to crochet, a very slow and painful process, and I have always crafted alone.....suddenly I was in a room full of inspirational and talented people.
As well as helpful advice, and guidance there is a table full of wonderful handmade treasures that anyone can use to sell things.... 

 I drool over the bits every week and wish I had far more pennies to spend than i do.

The hosts welcome everyone with open arms and strive very hard to make it a wonderful experience every week.......

 I of course love all the vintage china tea cups.....

and the homemade cakes........

As well as the clatter of needles, and the laughter and the chatter and the swapping of ideas and the show and tells and the oohs and ahhs as people show off  patterns and wools and finished items....its wonderful and I am so glad I found Knit Club x x

The Travelling Woolberries Knit Cafe  meets at the Untarian old meeting church Sidmouth , every Friday 10am- 12 mid-day, just pop along and poke your head around the door and find a very warm welcome.

Ive recentlyvtaken up knitting again after over 30years! Its got me by the throat! Could I pop in? Also, how would I make an offer on the knitting encyclopedia? I love vintage! Super blog.
