I finished a hat that was part of a class I took.
I don't have the skills to teach a beginner but I can supply encouragement!
We've been knitting at The Pub during this time for almost 5 years (predating this Meetup...)
As organizer, Meetup charges my Visa for the fees it takes to keep this group up and running. Hope others see the benefit in paying one-time only dues.
I'm definitely a beginner-- I keep switching back and forth between crochet and knitting, so I'm not moving towards mastery in either. Really enjoy looking at idea books and Ravelry, dreaming of the day when my skills match my ambitions.
