Let's all purl together now...

  • March 22, 2013 · 6:45 PM

Now our 3rd knitting meetup! Angela wonderfully offered up her home, so we've got to purl our own weight (!) and haul in some drinks and nibbles. I again will bring extra needles and some yarn for anyone looking to learn. Open to new knitters, ongoing knitters, and even those who crochet. Once the meetup RSVP's close, I'll post Angela's address (near Northgate) and we can coordinate any carpools.

    To clarify. Park near the intersection of Ashworth Ave N and N 92nd. The walk as if continuing on N 92nd westward up the long driveway. Townhouse at the very end of driveway.

    • Mindi

      There's always room for more cheese, chocolate, and wine!!

    Thank you for the map! I was wondering if you could also supply the address? The map is so small, maybe I'm just missing what's right in front of me? Thanks, I'm looking forward to meeting you all this evening!

    Hi ladies, make sure you take a look at the map Mindi sent. My place is very easy to get to... however, its in a grouping with other town houses and the addresses are a little random. I will have some signs up, so look for them in case you get lost!

    I have a competing work event so I'll need to bail out. Yay to having a wait list.

    March 18, 2013

  • Mindi

    Hello! Since there is limited space at Angela's, I've limited this meetup to 13 people. Since we have 3 people on the waiting list, please update your RSVP if you will not be able to make it Friday so that others that are interested can come. Thanks!

    My friend's one year old son was really fascinated with watching me knit earlier tonight. He mostly wanted to hold the ball of yarn, but he was ignoring me most of the night until I started knitting. His father had told me that he had learned to knit when he was little. He still has the knitting needles I guess. Maybe knitting runs in his family. Anyway. I just thought that was funny. I guess knitting used to be a man's trade back in the day...

    I'm interested in these knitting events but Friday evenings are hard-- traffic and work. Any chance an event could be held on a Saturday afternoon over coffee? Just an idea.

    March 16, 2013

    • Treela

      Akemi and others - You have a good suggestion. Did you know that anyone can suggest and host a meetup? Other people could host knitting events in this group if we want more of them. It definitely seems like there's plenty of interest. I've been thinking about posting something myself that falls about half way between the monthly one that Mindi has been posting. although I'm not gifted with any skill, so I couldn't offer to teach anyone. I just like to get together with others while I grow my skill, and I'm hoping for more chances to do that. so...anyway...just throwing that out there.

    Looking forward to our knitting night next Friday! Please update your RSVP if your plans have changed, as I'll be sending out Angela's address and prefer to send it to only those that will be coming.

    Also, if you are learning how to knit and need me to bring needles and some spare yarn for you, please let me know. If you know that you'll love knitting, you can pick up a needles and yarn at Jo-Ann Fabrics or my favorite knitting shop, Acorn Street. The yarn will list the recommended needle size on it. For beginning projects, I recommend looking for yarn that use a 10.5, 11, or 12 needle.

    No wait list? I want to come!

    March 7, 2013

    • Mindi

      Sorry still new at this! Waitlist option now available. Plan on coming though as we probably can squeeze you in.
