    What if I have never stitched a day in my life?

      All you need are knitting needles and yarn. I would start with a scarf as your first project, they're easier. I learned by watching online videos of knit and purl stitch- those are the primary stitches. Let me see if I can find a video tonight and post a link. I'm on my phone now.

    I will be a little late as I am attending a class that morning that does not let out until 1. This sounds like a really fun time! I'll most likely be bringing whatever illustration project I am working on in school.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
