    I had so much fun! As always, thanks for organizing it, Anne-Marie. I love the mix of newbies and veteran knitters, the freely shared advice, and recommendations for good books, stitches, stores and yarn.

    Good, except I just don't like Central Park. It's too far.

    My first time meeting up with the group and I really really enjoyed the time. If only the weather had been a little bit warmer . . .

    Flying pee, and a little nippy breeze and I still had a GREAT time. AM really goes out of her way at organizing wonderful events. I've loved everyone I've attended.

    The actual event was excellent! Anne-Marie always does an excellent job organizing the events and I always meet lots of new friends. The only disappointment was the after event "Party", since we walked all the way across the Park and several blocks uptown lugging our chairs, etc., to the knitting shop who was responsible for hosting the party only to discover the knitting shop had not arranged a party and to top it off hurriedly pushed us out of the shop continually announcing the store was going to close and that they had a life of their own to go home to etc. The way they treated us really didn't give me an incentive to spend any money there.

    Thanks for a lovely afternoon, Anne-Marie! I'm really looking forward to the next Meet Up!
