Knit In Ann Arbor

Last night I took the plunge & went to my very first knitting meetup at Sweetwaters in A2. I was pretty nervous. You may be surprised, but those who know me well can tell you I am actually very shy & have a hard time meeting people!

Anyways, I had a total blast! There were about a doz. knitters who came in through the evening. They were all very nice & educated & funny! I was particularly excited to meet Lynne whose blog I have been reading for a while! She is great fun! I was astonished to learn she has only been knitting for a year!! WOW!

So, not only did I meet some wonderful ladies, I got to spend 3 hours knitting! I finished my increases for the french market bag & even knit about an inch on my sis' sox!

I will definitely be going back next Tuesday & am looking forward to getting to know all the ladies I met!

What fun! I always look forward to the bi-monthly knitting group at my local library. And there's no shyness among knitters!

You're so lucky you found a group! Neat!
I know what you mean about being nervous. I freak out around groups of people. Put me in a room with more than three people and I want to melt away.
That's great you made yourself go, and I'm glad you had fun. Don't you love having knittin' buddies?
