Last night was the first Knittaz with Attitude (KWA) session at Claremont Park Community Centre, Claremont Rd, Blackpool. 22 knitwits came along to knit one, purl one and maybe drop one!
It was lovely to meet new people and see new faces, as well as learn new skills from our more experienced members (yes Pat, that’s you!). We also shared info on where to get the best deals on woolly goodness as well as inspiration for new projects.
All of this was, of course accompanied by the mother of all buffets…good times!
Thanks to all who turned up and to Caz and Mel for the yummy food, you will now be known as Buffet the Banquet Slayers.
KWA will continue to meet on the 1st Monday of every month, 6pm to 8:30pm at Claremont Park. All newcomers welcome. For more details visit the KWA Facebook page

We’ve decided to offer beadcraft and kite-making, its all included in the general entry price and whatever you make you can take home… WIN!
Just had a fab evening trying out some craft activities for future workshops. We’ve been making bracelets and earrings out of lovely beads, definitely a winner.
We’re looking for venues in the Blackpool & Fylde area to host some ‘pop-up’ craft workshops. These venues could be cafes, libraries, empty shops. If you know of anywhere, do leave a comment or join the discussion at www.facebook.com/loveauntysocial You can always tweet us @_AuntySocial_ too.
We’re looking to put the first workshop on in April and keep it simple with homemade bunting. We’re then looking at screen printing t-shirts, badgemaking and cuddly monster-making. There will be plenty of tea and cake, (naturally!) and hopefully some DJ sets or live acoustic music.
