Blog Love: The Knitter's Restaurant

Meet  Beverly Bochenek of The Knitter's Restaurant.

What does Beverly have to say about herself?
I learned how to knit in grade school - using pencils. I made a hideous looking scarf that I wore my freshman year in high school and after that I put down the knitting needles until a few years ago. Now it's amazing they are out of my hands long enough for me to write this!

I have a degree in English Literature and I love to write. Please visit my blog: for a steady update on knitting (it really is quite interesting) and other things as I see them.

StitchCraft is a knitting group I founded in 2007 and has over 100 members. The group has three components:

A social network for people who just want to get together and knit. No pressure to make things for charity or knit a sweater or anything like that. Just getting together for the love of the craft and the enjoyment of those who love it the same.

A mission component for those who are interested in knitting for a cause. We are asked to provide items for different charities and we hold an annual Sit & Knit where we get together for a morning to knit for a specific group or organization.

The Marketplace - for those who want to sell their items, we provide opportunities to participate in craft sales and shows. It is a way to get into the business side of knitting without too much of a financial impact.

If you are in the Chicago area and would like to join the group, please visit for information on our meeting schedule.
