Strength in Numbers

Tonight I went to my very first knitting/crocheting group. Since the group meets in a very small town (pop. 800) we didn't think that we could get away with calling the group "Stitch N Bitch" without problems. So, for lack of a better term, right now we are just the knitting/crocheting group. Anyway, the groupies range in age from 10 years old to about 50 (no need to get specific here). With the exception of myself and a friend Diane everyone else is a "just learning" or beginning knitter. One of the "just learning" knitters took off knitting like a pro and is know knitting in the front and back of a stitch! So, in conclusion, find a group to knit/crochet with, you will find strength in numbers!

Here are some groups for you to join...

Another way to find a group, go to your favorite coffee shop and ask if their shop is taken over once a week by some men/ladies with sticks, hooks, and string! Also, ask around at your place of worship, work, neighborhood, etc., if there isn't a group near you then start one! Groups like this are a great way to foster community, which we all need.

Happy Knitting,
