Our Little Knitting Group

Knitting Group Knitting Group
It's been a long time since I've been a knitter.  Actually, once I found crochet, I sort of just abandoned knitting altogether.  It's a shame, really.  They are both lovely crafts in their own right.  I've been feeling like it was time to get back in the game lately, so I decided to start hosting a knitting night at my place.  I've been to other knitting groups in the past, but everyone worked on their own separate projects and chatted, which is great, but I had a hard time staying on track.  A) I didn't really know what I was doing, and B) I'm often too social when there isn't a lot of structure.  Let's just say I'm quite the Chatty Cathy (or Katie... whatever).  I wanted this group to be different.  Socializing and bonding was still very important to me, but the learning/crafting aspect was the main goal.  I met an incredibly talented lady named Lauren at a local craft show last year and she agreed to be our sweet, patient teacher.  Here's a peek at our very first knitting night:

We even Skyped in my friend, Jess!  So fun.
I seriously adore this new group we have.  There are new people every week and everyone's just so happy to have a reason to carve time out of busy schedules just to gather.  I would highly suggest a group like this to anyone.  Good vibes and laughter filling our house is all a gal could ask for.

**If you're a Springfield, MO local and would like to come over for a knitting night, shoot me an email and I can get you all of the details!

Happy Friday, friends!

  2. Knitting groups are the best! I have a tendency to move frequently and everytime I move to a new city I look for or start knitting/crafting groups that meet at breweries - if you like to craft and drink craft, we can be friends :D

  3. This is such a cute idea! I wish I lived closer! I'd love to come. I'll have to start something like this in Phoenix.
