Here is just a quick post in celebration of the Wool Monkey knit and chatterers.
(I call them chatterers as they always have plenty to say and being quiet is definitely not one of their strong points).
The groups started when I originally opened the Wool Monkey shop. They started small in number but have grown in strength since. New members join from time to time, which keeps the group growing and keeps adding fresh ideas and new impetus. We have had many, many giggles, some cracking outings and some great gatherings.
These were from last years Xmas knit and chat, in the pub. The ladies are such great sports considering that I made them all knit with toilet paper, followed by a knit behind your back competition.
There are two knit and chat groups these days, Saturday evening and Tuesday mornings, both of which have continued long after the Wool Monkey shop has closed. They really are a great bunch of ladies. A somewhat eclectic mixture without a doubt, but very caring and very supportive of each other.
They go on outings together, (almost always involving some kind of woolly event of course), they’ve helped me yarn bomb on the odd occasion, they teach and inspire each other and they looked after me when I had to close my shop.
Oh, and they’re always up for showing off their knitting!
So, thank you ladies for being such a fab group, let’s keep it going. I am looking forward to seeing what sort of stuff we can get up to next year!
If you are interested in joining our knit and chat groups, do get in touch so we can let you know where we are meeting, newcomers are always very welcome.
You don’t need to know how to knit or crochet to join, we will teach you…
