Our Little 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!
