You're not going to believe what I just got back from! My first knit nite! It was most excellent! It turns out that meeting new knitters is way less scary than meeting other people, because there's no searching around for some common ground to discuss. There's knitting! And that provides a wealth of topics. There was some discussion of socks, intarsia, what would you be "scared" to knit, the Flying Spaghetti Monster (ok, not all knitting related). There were almost 20 women there, and all of them were lovely (well, all the ones I talked to were - but I'm sure everyone else was too). I even found out about other knitting events going on that I could participate in! Sorry about all the exclamation points, but as you can tell, I had a good time.
Gotta get up incredibly early tomorrow, so I've got to go do some dishes and get to bed.
