Knitting & Crocheting Mondays @ The Old Bar 6-8pm

Some friends and I are starting a knitting and crocheting evening at The Old Bar on Monday evenings called Work in Progress. Everyone is welcome, you can bring your own knitting, or there will be some needles and wool available at the bar if you don't have your own project or can't be bothered bringing it in. There'll be people there who can help with knitting problems or if you'd like to learn new things.

It goes from 6-8pm, and it's free.

Will LiLi be knitting?

anonymous  said about 5 years ago:

should knit some stubby holders.

Block  said about 5 years ago:

I heartily endorse this product and/or event.

Ben  said about 5 years ago:

is sewing included?

megb  said about 5 years ago:

LiLi will be pouring the drinks behind the bar.. I think we could get him on board though. Surely he'd be interested in knitting a VB stubby holder? Block you'd be interested in that too wouldn't you?

Sewing is welcomed also.

Modi  said about 5 years ago:

I liked my name better.

Block  said about 5 years ago:

And what was that, Modi?

Modi  said about 5 years ago:

The crotchety knitwits.

megb  said about 5 years ago:

Yeah I liked it too.. you can call it that if you want. Maybe it could be Work in Progress brought to you by Crotchety Knitwits.

Modi  said about 5 years ago:

You don't care what we call you, as long as we call. Right?

Sorry, I'm more of a tinkery, woodworky, greasy fingery kinda guy. I used my mum's sewing machine once, and was banned forever.

megb  said about 5 years ago:

That's right modi. I have a feeling that my input to the group might be more on the chatting side than the production side - you're always welcome to join in on that.. and eminently qualified one would think!

JRB  said about 5 years ago:

Does a Knitting Nancy count?

megb  said about 5 years ago:

Sure. finger knitting is also welcome.

megb  said about 5 years ago:

I think I'm going to make a new scarf.

singa  said about 5 years ago:

good idea, getting ready for winter

megb  said about 5 years ago:

Thanks singa - you want me to knit you one?

singa  said about 5 years ago:

can i pick a colour

Ben  said about 5 years ago:

do you have sewing machines I can use?

megb  said about 5 years ago:

It's a craft night not a sweatshop ben! Yes of course you can pick a colour sing.

Ben  said about 5 years ago:

sweatshop huh?! there's an idea...

who here is good at sewing?

I bought a new lamp for you to see better.

anonymous  said about 3 years ago:

I love lamp.

megb  said about 3 years ago:

Thank you Old Bra, you're awesome.

gusseting  said about 3 years ago:

indeed. a new lamp? THE EXCITEMENT!
i may have to make myself a deadline of the 30th april for a knitted outfit of some description. way too much yarn. not enough clothing.
how about this crocheted charmer?

cro shay

not sure how comfy it'd be wearing the thing in april though. another time, perhaps. another, perhaps.

Coz  said about 3 years ago:

Yay! I have no idea how to knit but I plan on learning - I want to be able to knit my own legwarmers! So now I've got until the 30th to hone my skills.

megb  said about 3 years ago:

That is an amazing swimsuit Gusseting.

redlips  said about 3 years ago:

I've just realised I won't be at the first one on account of this - I'll be at the next one though... looking very much forward to this starting up again!

megb  said about 3 years ago:

I just bought a lovely little baby blue hand knitted v-neck jumper from the Salvos. Instead of ribbing on the cuffs it has cables. Cute!

liamsnice  said about 3 years ago:

Knitting at the Old Bar kicks off this coming Monday! Looking forward to it, Ive missed my knitting crew.

liamsnice  said about 3 years ago:



Do come along.

megb  said about 3 years ago:

There will be cake.

liamsnice  said about 3 years ago:

This is also still happening for all those with a wool fetish.

megb  said about 3 years ago:

Our annual exhibition is on the 24th of Sept for those that like to plan ahead...

Facebook event here

megb  said about 3 years ago:

And of course CK is still on every week leading up to the exhibition if you wanna come.

megb  said about 2 years ago:

The Crotchety Knitwits Exhibition is on TONIGHT! at 6pm!

megb  said about 2 years ago:

We are back in business. Serious Business. Mondays 6-8pm.

megb  said about 2 years ago:

Great start to the CK year. It's gonna be a good one. x

Block  said about 1 year ago:

Oh yeah this has started again too. Man they drink a lot of wine considering knitting takes two hands.

liamsnice  said about 1 year ago:

Block is in fact correct.

This has again started. The fire is burning. There's a bunch of new wines at the bar. Block and I watch some pretty heavy films on VHS in the front bar. And there's bands on afterwards.

megb  said about 1 year ago:

Crotchety Knitwits Exhibition 2014. Monday 29th September at 6pm at The Old Bar. Come see some crafty shit, then hang around for the bands. x
