woolthamstow

Being a recent arrival to Walthamstow, I quickly set about getting involved in various things, including kicking off a new knitting group.  We have a group on Ravelry, as well as a group on Meetup, and we have a really good mixture of knitters and crocheters, so there’s no discrimination here!

We meet on the first and third Monday of each month at the recently refurbished The Bell.

It’s a good local pub, with polished wood floors, rickety second-hand furniture, and comfy couches that are just right for sitting and knitting.  We tend to snaffle the couches by the window, so we get the best light and we can do some knitting promotion with the passers-by.

One of the walls even features William Morris-esque floral wallpaper, in a nod to the William Morris Gallery down the road:

The food always goes down a treat:

If you’re local to E17, please do come along and join in.

And just a little snippet of news:  Woolthamstow is about to get even woollier…

exciting!

  1. I didn’t know you’d moved to the Stow! I must try and make it to a knit night at the Bell as I only live in the next road. 😉

    • Hi Alice. Yep, we definitely still meet! First and third Monday of the month. Unfortunately I won’t be there on the next one (Mon Sept 21) as I’m on holidays, but I’ll be there next time. If you pop by on Monday, you’ll definitely meet some lovely knitters!
