KIPPING - where do you do it?

Us brazen Outcasters do it in public all the time - knitting that is. Kipping means 'Knitting In Public. We can be spotted kipping on trains, waiting for trains, in cafes, waiting for children to finish their dance/music/drama classes, by the pool on holiday and in pubs to name but a few. We'd like to hear where you KIP

Knitting in Mal Maison

Cocktail in one hand and knitting needles in the other

Knithappens knits poolside in Portugal

Garter stitching in Greece

knitting with cocktails

Knit night with a difference.

So we arrived at Malmaison resplendent, looking normal everyday cocktail drinkers, ordered an exotic drink and sat down in the comfy darkened lounge with other people in their frocks. Before their very eyes we whipped out our needles and clickety click the knit was on.

the newest *outcast*, Bombella, sipping something french

knitwit sipping Jimmy Hendrix whilst at the wavy edged crochet

something tropical

We are outcast, we like to chat, laugh, make things together, hang out, go to things and put everything right in our own worlds.

We love making stuff.
