Twittering with Mim, we have hatched a plan for a bit of a handicraft group. Time is short in most people's lives, so we were thinking maybe once a month. Having sat here knitting and singing along to the better of the Max playlist tonight, I was considering music in the background, to be turned up as required for singalongs.
So I'm thinking creativity meets Singstar meets Ladies-Please-Bring-a-Plate. (All Gentleman also welcome (with a plate!) - Eric where are you? And are you still knitting?)
Would any Sydney-siders be interested? If so, would a week day be better for you or a Sunday?
I am also considering one weekday (Friday probably) and one Sunday a month, if there was sufficient interest.
I do accept this may be just me and Mim. I'm good with that option too. :)
So if you have been considering learning a craft, or returning to one long discarded, let me know if this might work for you. Can't tell you the benefit of it when I go to my mother's shop and knit surrounded by women doing all sorts of stitchery. They've taught me useful knitting stuff, and passed on all sorts of other wisdom.
