March 7, 2013 marked the inaugural Slo-femist Knitting Circle at Shaktea on Main Street in Vancouver, Canada. Scones and tea were consumed with gusto as members, stitched, knitted and ignited the slow-burning revolution. Discussion was as rich and ripe as a peat bog. Repairs were made to second-hand sweaters. Hats were adorned with rooster feathers and a lively purple sweater grew stitch by stitch.
The birthday girl was treated to scones with lashings of clotted cream and Earl Grey blueberry preserves accompanying three steepings of a rare white tea.
Ms. Shapiro brought one of nature's wonders (collected by her late mother) to inspire us to better our crafting skills.
Shapiro, Weidenhammer and Kindratsky in attendence ( Ms. and Miss Roy turned up later.)
Every revolution must have its own cartoonist and Ms. Kindratsky has got off to an excellent start . . . not with a bang, or a whimper, but a wink!
