just back from the big london new year stitch and bitch at the south bank (and eating some chili noodles to warm up).
it was my first time and i made a special effort as it was their big new year welcome night and i had a good night...
...but i can definitely see how other knitclubbers could find it a bit cliquey...
i know it was really really really really busy, taking up about a quarter of the royal festival hall foyer, so i didn't really expect a personal warm welcome. yet when one of the organiser girlies came over to our table to say hello to a fello knitter who had attended previously, i said hi and that it was my first time and how amazingly busy it was. organiser girlie pretty much blanked me.
weird - especially as it was an advertised newbie night.
(not surprised tho after what i'd heard from others)
but hey ho.
i made a few new friends that are lovely and i hope to cross paths with again another time.
maybe even there again - tonight coulda just been an anomaly as it was sooo busy?
all the other stitch and bitches i've been to have been so great so will definitely give london another chance!
