I learned to knit a little bit more than a year ago. I have a couple of friends who knit but one lives in Orange County and one lives in upstate New York and that doesn’t really make for much social knitting. So I joined the local Yahoo Stitch ‘n’ Bitch email list, which I read (well, skim) in daily digest form. Once I even went to a get-together. I had a good time and meant to go again, but sometimes leaving my house just doesn’t happen.
I went again tonight and had the best time ever. Unfortunately I was having so much fun that I forgot to get my parking validated before everything closed, which lead to the horror shown to the right.
Since that’s what I would have spent if I’d bought food and drink, I guess I can’t be too terribly upset, except that I’d already eaten and brought water with me. I guess I’ll have to settle for learning a valuable lesson, and dock my yarn allowance.
If you knit or crochet, the Stitch ‘n Bitch group is a great way to meet other yarn-obsessed folks. You can join the list here, which will give you access to a calendar showing all of the get-togethers. Thursdays at 7:00 is the Farmer’s Market group, which is where I went. There’s something happening almost every day, though. I’m thinking of going to all of them. See you there! Just don’t forget to have your parking validated.
