Monday night

We had a full house at Hart's Pub on Monday night. Here are just a few of the FO's (finished objects), UFO's (unfinished objects), WIP's (works in progress), and BIP's (beers in progress) from the group:

Manly meeting

Forgot to post this for some reason, but the first Manly meeting last week was a lot of fun. We had a small, but keen group meeting up for the first time sitting next to a rather cosy, fake fireplace.

For any potential newcomers, just ask for the Lounge Bar, which is slightly hidden away from the rest of the Manly Wharf Hotel. It's hidden behind some bamboo panneling, and has a retro orange theme.

See you next week on the 25th!

Harts knitting is on tonight

See everyone at the Harts Pub, Corner Essex and Gloucester Streets in the Rocks, from 6pm or so, down in the little lounge room at the front (or upstairs if there are bozo's taking over the lounge!). If you're there on time and noone's shown up - hang in there, people might just be running late!

Knit in 2006

In case you're free on the 28th of July between 6.30 and 11am in the morning 702 ABC Sydney is gearing up for its fourth annual Knit In.

"It's now time to pick up your needles and get knitting; and also time to hunt out any spare wool you may have lying around your home.

Last year's Knit In was a huge success with a record number of squares and wraps created. It was all part of the "Wrap with Love" cause, a non-profit organisation who knitted squares into wraps for communities around the world to ensure no-one suffers from the cold.

Over 42,000 squares, totalling over 1,500 completed wraps, were knitted during last year's campaign. So, can we do better than that this year?"

OK - the calendar on the Stitch website needsd some SERIOUS fixing and people are getting their poor heads in a muddle. The next session for the Harts Pub group at the Rocks is 17 July 2006. The Manly sessions are back up and running and the first one of those will be 11 July 2006. Keep posted for any changes, and send us a comment/email if you find us lacking further in our admin!

Knitters unite!

This is the first posting for the Sydney Stitch n Bitch knitting group blog! Through this blog we will endeavour to keep all you knitters out there in touch with Stitch session times and dates, and events happening in knitting-land in and around Sydney, and also keep you up to date with the latest finished (and unfinished) objects that people are knitting in the group.

Have a look at the times and see when you can make a session at either the Rocks or Manly venue - we'd love to meet you. Keep in mind that we are also other-craft friendly, so if it's cross-stitch or origami that you're into, feel free to pop along and meet other crafty-minded folk.

Also, feel free to send any ideas, suggestions, or upcoming knitterly dates to us for posting via our email:

Looking forward to meeting new members,
Sydney Stitch
