For the Mountain View folks who can't make it to San Jose, and for everyone else too, Mondays at Peet's on Castro seem pretty nice!
All levels welcome—come knitters, come crocheters, or just come by and say hello. If you've never knit (or crocheted) before, just bring a set of needles (or a hook or a loom) and some yarn, we can get you started.
This venue has a parking lot next door (it's on the not-so-busy part of Castro Street). It does close at 9 but they're friendly about asking us to leave. We'll do introductions & show-and-tell around 8 o'clock, so bring along any finished objects you like and we'll ooh and aah over them.
** The meetup is free as always, but it's nice to buy a drink or snack at Peet's since they're so nice about letting us use the space. **
