Farewell City Cafe

After a month on tour City Knitty met at the City Café, Blair Street, for the last time and awaited the final results of the vote for our new weekly home which were announced as follows:

- Chai Teahouse, 17 votes, 77.27%
- Double Dutch, 1 votes, 4.55%
- Favorit, 0 votes, 0.00%
- Standing Order, 1 votes, 4.55%
- No preference, 3 votes, 13.64%

Chai was a clear winner so in future we will be meeting there on Wednesday evenings.

Onto the knitting, there were a number of projects make welcome returns, including a wrap cardigan, turquoise-green asymmetric armband and the little bunny whose legs were now complete, work progressing onto the body. There was also a test patch for a cabled scarf, and yet another version of the Debbie Bliss hooded moss-stitch baby blanket, this time in green, a white moss stitch baby hat (also by Debbie Bliss) and bright multi-coloured socks were all making good progress as was a lacy scarf.

Crochet flowers were being attempted in one corner alongside what was described as a “pink mess” and not far away the first attempt at knitting in the round saw the start of a pair of fingerless mittens. Another new start was a dark coloured pill box hat.

In line with the move to our new home at Chai, the City Knitty website will be getting a face lift and a temporary holding page will be unveiled very shortly.
