If you think that the moss stitch and the reverse stitch were reserved for grannies, it means that you don't yet know any knitting cafés. Completely strange and entirely trendy, these places where town-dwelling knitting ladies gather for a chinwag, for exchanging ideas, tricks and tips are flowering just about everywhere in the big cities.
Brussels hasn't escaped the trend and groups of women, needles and balls of wool in hand, can regularly be seen disembarking into certain cafés.
With knitwear making a comeback and a winter that is promising to be harder than ever, the knitting café should attract new fans.
If the knitting ladies dawdle in the Brussels cafés, they're in a hurry for only one thing when they get home: to share their experiences on the Net via amusing and interesting blogs. These information sources are ideal for learning the times and places and dates of the knitting get-togethers.
So don't hesitate any longer, take the first step. The more so as newcomers are always welcomed with open arms. Stéphanie Guillaume
