WI ROCKS.

Last Tuesday I had the pleasure of talking to the East End WI about how I ended up dedicating my life to knitting. The East End WI meet at the Chisenhale Gallery in E3, and I have to say it was the most enjoyable talk I have ever given. The WI can boast a diverse mixture of unique women. They ask brilliant questions, laugh in all the right places, collect old bras for the third world, raise money for good causes, knit skillfully and of course make fantastic cakes.

Yes, and collecting old bras is really important. If they can't use the whole bra, they can use parts of the bra to form new bras.
