I was walking past the campus cafeteria at work last week and noticed a group of women sitting knitting. Despite all senses telling me to do so, I decided not to be socially awkward and just bowl over to them with a big "Hey, can I join in?!" but as soon as I got a chance I headed down to the Student Services noticeboard to see if it was an organised group or just some friends having some lunch and a knit.
Turns out is is a weekly knitting group, right under my department! They have about 10 members that come and go through a two hour session that runs over lunch breaks.
I went along the following week and I'm not really sure how this even happened, but within 2mins had been signed up to knit a blanket square for a charity group they are working with. It's mindless knitting, 44sts of garter stitch for roughly 88 rows. They did provide the wool at least...
Such a quick and easy pattern to knit up, I am definitely considering another soon.
