Sip and Stitch

We are a group of friendly knitters at all skill levels who like to visit and knit together over a beer or other cuppa something yummy. Come join us! We don't just knit. Some folks crochet, do beadwork. etc. If you do other handcrafts, feel free to join us. And if you want to learn how to knit, let me know ahead of time and I can get you started. The Pub is just that--a pub, a comfortable place with plenty of drink choices (non-alcoholic too!), so it will be easy to find something to enjoy while we're there, and please do plan to purchase something while we're there - we want them to keep welcoming us back! We've been sitting in the comfy chairs around the fireplace when they're open - if they're not we just find a place big enough for all of us. The pub isn't that big, and they know us there, so if somehow you don't see us right away, just ask at the counter and they'll direct you. Finally, please only sign up if you're reasonably certain that you'll be able to make it. I'm keeping the group small, and I don't want anyone to miss out. Thanks! See you there!

    I'm a beginner who has never really knitted and am interested in learning! What supplies should I be bringing?

      Hi, Alison, and welcome to the group. To clarify, this group is mainly social (many of the local knitting shops have classes for beginners). You may find someone willing to teach you the evening you are with us, but that's not a certainty. Light-colored yarn (so you can see your mistakes) and a size 8 or 9 set of needles is enough to start. Single-ply yarn is best when starting out.

      Hi Alison. I'll be happy to teach you if you come on a night when I'm there (almost every time, but I won't be there on the 28th). Rhonda was right - simple light colored yarn, needles big enough to handle easily (size 8 or 9 are good), and we'll get you started. We'll see you soon! Diana

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
