    Dear Knitwits!
    I am looking for an experienced knitter to make a small waistcoat a la Kaffe Fassett.

    I have enough wool I think, doesn’t have to conform to pattern (some licence is great). Size about 8 or 10 I think.

    Delighted to pay any mad fool who volunteers.

    Hello, most of these comments are bit older – do you still meet at the Fortescue? Looking for a group to join but must be evenings – I work 9-5. Thanks

  14. Tina says:

    as above quesion. I work all day but would love a group to join in the evening. Is the Mutley group still functioning? Thanks to anyone who replies x

  15. Mrs Joan Wills says:

    Would love to join a group as I have two or three items of knitting started but now having problems with shaping. Would like to have some expert advice on finishing these garments. Thanks

  16. Kasia says:

    Hi All,
    I do crochet and would love join the group 🙂 if the group isn’t there anymore Im quite happy to meet with girls that do crochet too 🙂 so we can share our hobby 🙂

  17. Deborah says:

    Well a glance at the facebook page suggests they are still active, though presumably not popping onto this site much any more 😛

  18. Beryl Stoyle says:

    I am a lady who lives in a mobile home at Glenholt and would love to join a group of
    ladies or gents who are interested in knitting crochet cross stitch etc
    The last bus from here is 6 pm from park and ride which again is a 20min walk to it and back
    All community buses finish at 4 but are active from 9am
    So I can on a weekly trip go to and fro on this bus between 9am to 3.30
    If anyone living near me would like to come to my home I would be ok with that as I could easily cope with around 10
    I also have a car space and probably two cars could park there if need be
    Welcome any feed back

  19. Maggie says:

    hi beryl. Just found this site. Are you still knitting. If so where are you and everyone else hanging out please. I’d love to join in and if anyone can help me learn a few more crochet stitches I’d be grateful. Ta. Maggie

  20. Zoe says:

    Hi there,
    I am a complete beginner but am getting quite addicted to knitting 🙂
    I’d love to come along to the group if it’s still running. Could you let me know?

  21. tess says:

  22. Ashleigh says:

    Hi, I wonder if you can help me? I’m a nurse up at derriford on an acute medical ward. We regularly have patients admitted that suffer with dementia – I wonder if anyone would be able to volunteer to knit some ‘twiddlemuffs’ – they are a tube of knitting with lots of buttons, balls and textures attached to keep the patients hands occupied. I am happy o provide all of the wool and decoration – I just can’t knit myself. Any help at all would be really appreciated.

  23. Cari says:

    Hi there,

    I am moving down to the area shortly and don’t know a soul!

    Thank you in advance

    Hi Maggie. I know your message was posted ages ago, but I wonder if you had a response. I have recently returned to Plymouth and am looking for a knitting group or buddy. Love knitting and chatting. If you had no luck perhaps we could get together. I don’t expect a reply too soon at this busy time, but would really like to hear from you. Regards Gilly.

  29. Maxine Dorey says:

    Hi there,

    I cannot knit but have been desperate to learn how for a very long time. I love on the moors so I’m close to Plymouth and Tavistock and surrounding areas. Is this group still on, or is there another group somewhere else? I would love to get involved and learn.

  30. Beryl Stoyle says:

    I and my friend would like to know if the group is still going
    I can crochet and knit but willing to show others any of my knowledge
    My friend Heather I am in the midst of teaching crochet and our incentive is
    to make baby items for the premature baby unit
    Would be pleased if you would kindly reply

  31. Beryl Stoyle says:

    To Maggie B
    Sorry I’ve been so long in answering your message written quite a long time ago
    as I’ve only just come across it
    At the time I was looking to start a group but don’t think I would get permission as
    I live in a mobile home paying ground rent which may be the problem although I
    do crochet with two of my neighbours
    We don’t have a bus service and I would have to walk to park/drive to catch a bus
    which would be no problem if I joined a group from 11am to 3pm in order to catch a bus
    back Evenings would be ok if the bus service did not end at 6pm so would have to depend
    on a lift I hope you do find a group as craft work is so interesting
