In the dark days before the internet revolution one might have had to resign themselves to reserve their crocheting and knitting to solitary evenings by the fire, suppressing their social urges until they could get out of the house and share gossip amongst their next door neighbors and work colleagues. Now with the advent of online meetup groups these activities can be combined as they are in the group Knit PH, a self proclaimed “Stitch ‘n Bitch” that meets up erratically at Prospect Perk Cafe.
Whether you’re desperate for knitting tips or want to meet up just for the fun of sharing an esoteric interest this group is open to knitters of any gender from every walk of life who want to share their craft and socialize.
The group is also involved in the humanitarian project Afghans for Afghans which sends hand-knit and crocheted blankets and sweaters, vests, socks, hats and mittens to bring comfort and warmth to the war stricken people of Afghanistan.
