Vegan Knitting Circle!

Here's your chance to get together with other vegan knitters and relax and chat after a busy holiday season. Rest assured you won't have to listen to anyone wax poetic about spinning their own yarn from wool or the miracles of alpaca and cashmere blends, and instead trade tips about soy silk yarn and yarn made from bamboo and corn. Ask others for ideas on the best way to veganize knitting patterns and hear about the most-vegan friendly yarn shops in the Twin Cities (anyone else ever had a sales clerk try and talk you into buying animal-fibers when you have specifically told them you're looking for something vegan?).

Bring snacks, too!  Snacks make everything better.

Note: This is not a knitting lesson, though we may do that in the future. All levels are welcome, crocheters, tatters, and the like are welcome, too, we just ask that the craft you bring be animal-free. :)

    Hi Kris,
    I don't know how to knit so should I wait for the "knitting lesson" meet up?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
