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

Stitching Secret Santa the Second

Posted by Deadly Knitshade on December 17, 2009

Twas the very last Stitch and Bitch London meeting before Christmas and all through the National Theatre not a creature was knitting…except for 30 people on the first floor.

Since some of you lovely S&B Londoners missed out on Stitching Secret Santa (and one poor soul ended up with the unhandmade prize of pantsness) we decided to give Stitching Secret Santa another jingling whirl in what has come to be known, imaginatively, as Stitching Secret Santa the Second.

Witness the loveliness of what our handcrafting heroes contributed to Round Two here:

Cuuuuuute bag and row counter

A fine woolly pair

The proof was in the (tea cosy) pudding. Marion gets a fabulous present at last.

A very sweet stitched stocking

A snuggly snood

Perfect pink armwarmers (to be passed on to a friend by their slightly allergic recipient)

Charming handmade buttons and charm

Dangling decorations

Christmas tree peoples

Stitched soldiers

A selection of stockings

The ink-slinging Gary ‘Sheep Stitcher’ Northfield also wandered along to admire the woolly wonders and sign some copies of his Derek the Sheep book for our competition winners:

Derek runs from an angry bee

Derek in Wonderland

Derek joins Knit the City for a yarnstorm on the farm

All in all it was a marvellous Stitchmas way to end one of S&B London’s busiest, moustachiest, maddest years.

Thanks to everyone who stitched their second Secret Santa and everyone who ooohed and ahhed in the right places as they were opened.
