I’m always interested in “pun”nily or cutely named groups or activities. Anne, a talented potter and knitter I met through the Royal City Farmers Market, passed on some info about another group she’s a part of called Knit 1, Take 2 and of course, I was intrigued. Um, hello, awesome name much?
Knit 1, Take 2 is a New Westminster knitters’ social group starting up all about knitting. From their website:
We are a community of enthusiastic knitters of all levels who meet in New Westminster to inspire and encourage each other, develop our skills and also work on group projects to give back to our community. Each week, we start with a short tip or lesson. You are welcome to come and knit thru the lesson. Then we knit and chat, ending with a quick Show & Tell to give each other well deserved kudos. All levels of knitters welcome – even if you are a newbie and want to learn to knit. We have a special project that will get you started on this fun, yarn adventure. This group was started by people in the film industry who knitted in between takes… hence, Knit 1, Take 2. However, since we’ve all had to rip out work and redo it, ‘Take 2’ can sometimes be ‘Take 3’ or more…
Knit 1, Take 2 meets at Waves (in their meeting room at the back) at 713 Columbia Street, every Sunday starting on October 18th from 2pm to 4pm. There isn’t much in the way of dues or fees, but they do ask that you contribute to their community project by making one 9×9” square for a blanket or a hat (worsted weight, machine washable only, sample patterns available if required).
You can email the group at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
