May meeting :: knitting!

Hi Canberra owls!
May is nearly over, which means it is time for our next get together!!

The cooler weather, and maybe the yarn fumes from the Old Bus Depot Market Celebration of Wool day yesterday, has us obsessed with all things wooly - so this month we'll be offering a learn to knit workshop!

If you'd like to join in all you need to do is let us know in the comments, and bring along your own knitting needles and wool. For beginners about size 4mm needles, and a nice smooth (not fuzzy) 8ply (sometimes called DK) in a colour other than black is best - but if you have something else at home already that will be fine too. If you don't have any supplies but want to try it out just let us know and we'll try to arrange for extras.

Of course, if knitting isn't your thing that's ok too! Just bring along whatever you happen to be working on and join us for a chat and a cup of tea!

We will be meeting on Saturday May 25, 2pm at the Downer Community Centre 

Please also remember to bring $5 for room hire, and something to share for arvo tea if you would like!

It would be wonderful if you could RSVP in the comments below so that we know how many owls to expect - dont forget to tell us if you'd like us to bring spare needles/wool!

Please let us know if you have any questions!


  1. Sounds lovely. Count me in. Not too sure about the knitting thing, but I'll have a think about it!

  2. It is completely OUTRAGEOUS that yet again I cannot make it. Damn it. I'll click along in spirit. xx

  3. I am pretty sure at this stage that I can make it, not sure about knitting either but I will bring something along!

  4. Hi girls,

    would love to come but have a big painting push on with the rennos so will hope to see you next month. Kylee xo

  5. Hello,

    My friend Mandy & I would like to join you, it sounds like fun. Looking forward to stitching with you.
