Today was one of those Mondays that I particularly like. Members of the American International Women’s Club of Cologne met for Stitch ‘n’ Bitch.

It was a smaller group this time, made up of five knitters knitting, one stitcher stitching, and a child-free mum browsing pattern books.

When we meet, we admire each other’s handiwork, drink coffee and put the world to rights while we knit, crochet and sew.

Today, members worked on a counted (!) cross-stitch sampler; a jumper, now cast on for the fourth time; a scarf that only gets knitted at Stitch ‘n’ Bitch; baby booties; a baby cardigan; and a Top Secret Project.

The Top Secret Project was supposed to turn into a Finished Object but chatty knitters and written instructions for Kitchener stitch don’t mix well.

Sadly, I can count the number of Stitch ‘n’ Bitch get-togethers I’ll still attend on the fingers of one hand. But that’s another story…
