10th of July already! Zooming today without any issues at my end thankfully. May was frozen for a while but defrosted without missing too much. Judith sent us a photo of her latest FO - a beautiful baby cardi for Sarah: Krysia M showed us a tapestry she's in the middle of - a Kaffe … Continue reading Virtual Friday 17
Today's meeting, 3rd July, was not without issues. I was prepared and ready, having 'practised' some screen sharing to make sure I did it right, when my internet connection suddenly dropped, just 10 minutes prior to the start of the meeting. OK. Run downstairs to check the router and reboot it just in case. Back … Continue reading Virtual Friday 16
I came across this the other day and liked it. I hope you like it too. It's a knitting podcast by a young woman called Melanie in the Netherlands, although from her accent I think she might be British. I really like what she says in this particular podcast, which she has called 'This is … Continue reading Braid and Tinker podcast
Another week, another Zoom....... Quite a few of us again on the 26th of June. Luckily no-one seems to be finding meeting like this boring - or if they do, they're not saying 🙂 Linda's knitted another stunning shawl. She's so clever! I might try breaking into her house one of these days to steal … Continue reading Virtual Friday 15
I loved seeing these fab women and their colourful chunky yarns on the BBC. Really cheered me up 🙂
We decided to find out more about the knitters involved. We asked Sicgmone Kludje and Vea Koranteng from Black Girl Knit Club to tell us more.
How did you end up in the BBC ident?
The BBC researchers and producers got in contact with us after seeing our online presence such as our social media accounts and website. At the time we were sharing content on how we were staying creative to induce wellness during the lockdown as well as organise online zoom sessions for our attendees. They then updated us about the Oneness ident project and its focus on showing people getting creative during UK lockdown and we were excited to get involved.

It was the 19th of June, the start of summer and a wet and grey day. Oh well, can't have it sunny all the time, eh? At least we were spared getting wet and Zoomed in the comfort of our own homes. We had an enjoyable chat - no games, no quizes for a change … Continue reading Virtual Friday 14
It was the 12th of June but the 13th time of meeting. Would you believe it? A whole quarter of a year has been spent in virtual meetings! We met on Zoom and admired Judith's latest FO's, all for Sarah's baby. Lovely, aren't they? Liz has also been busy making things for a friend's baby. … Continue reading Virtual Friday 13
I've been busy and feeling a bit lazy this last week and today (the 12th) still hadn't written up our meeting of the 5th. I thought I'd do a combined post covering weeks 12 and 13 but the meeting we had this morning was quite full of info etc that the resulting post would be … Continue reading Virtual Friday 12

We spent quite a long time just chatting and showing various bits and pieces of knitting then we had 'Corona … Continue reading Virtual Friday 11
22nd May and some bad news to report. Photo posted on FB by Heatons & Reddish GMP This damage was done to the pavilion some time during last week-end. Kids climb onto the roof every so often and this time instead of being satisfied with that achievement, they've gone one step further and decided to … Continue reading Virtual Friday 10
