25th June at Spitalfields....

Another glorious Sunday at Spitalfields Market (although being under cover, we don't see much of the sunshine!) - while England were seeing to Ecuador we had a grand time meeting some new knitters at the market stall - including Jeremy Hackett (of Hackett of Bond Street dontcha know) who has requested a pair of socks be knit for him with the genius Opal self-patterning sock yarn - Gerard has his 2.5mm double point toothpicks at the ready as I write.

But we also met some people who can knit for themselves, so thanks to all those who stopped by for a chat, especially Lyn and Astrid (new I Knit London members we hope!) who were delightful. We had the first part (tributary?) of I Knit and WaterAid's 'Knit A River' project on display today - including some new squares from the USA and New Zealand - and thanks to those who dropped by with squares at the stall today (Eleanor and Mimi). Keep them coming in. Our link on the right hand menu will keep you up to date with the campaign and we'll try to post a random square each week to offer inspiration and thanks to all those who are getting involved.

We'll be away for next Sunday's market as, sadly, we are having a break in southern Spain - but we'll be back on 9th July (unless England make the final.....), so we'll be back on 9th July and it'll be Gerard's birthday too. Come down and say hello and Happy Birthday....
