The Fabulous Story of Stitch London (formerly Stitch and Bitch London)

A new start for Stitchette Startitis

Posted by Deadly Knitshade on September 14, 2009

Stitch and Bitch London say goodbye to the lovely Jenny ‘Startitis’ Steere as she hangs up her Stitchette hat and gets back to having time to start more knitting projects.

Jenny stormed into her Stitchette status with style and socks meeting the Yarn Harlot all the way back in September 2008.



She brought more stitching skill to the Stitchette team than the rest of us had put together.

She took part in numerous knitworthy charity events, including being a cake-eating finisher at the Race for Life.

Jenny and her knitting have always been up for stitching in public from regular meetings to making knitted art in Trafalgar Square.

Jenny may not have made it to the Tashtastic Knit Crawl but nothing was going to prevent her from trying out her own version of a knitted nose neighbour.



Jenny taught scores of newbie knitters. She’s fairly good at teaching the B part of S&B London too. A very important Stitchette quality.



Jenny was part of the pioneering team who decided it was time for wine. We blame her for many dropped stitches and wonky rows.

We couldn’t have asked for a better Stitchette than Startitis. You’ve been a woolly wonder to work with and we’re sure every member of S&B London appreciates all the spare time you poured into making S&B London fabulous.

We’re starting to miss you already. All the best in whatever you start next.

Lots of love
