Yarn Along: IRL


Today I made an amazing discovery.  There is a knitting group half an hour away that meets in a local library every Tuesday afternoon. It's like a yarn along in real life! 
 Everyone was really friendly and tolerant of Lucy's antics. I got a few rows done on her blue pullover, but mostly I wrangled her and got to know everyone. One woman spins, so we made plans to bring our spindles next week. I have wanted to have a group like this for so long. I really can't believe it's actually happening...

Our library across the street had a group Purls of Wisdom, which sadly just dissolved over the summer. There is another library about 3 miles away, however that has a yarn-group 2x every month! Nice to have a local group of support and inspiration!!!

How wonderful! I've been to a couple of knitting groups here but haven't found one I've "gelled" with, yet.

How fun!!! On Wednesdays, I've been going to a friend's house for a play date, and there are a few of us who bring our knitting projects.

That is so great!! I started the Front Porch Kntting club here at my house but unfortunately I am the best knitter in the club haha. It would be great to have some great knitters around for when you get stuck on something!! Tricia @ crunchycatholicmomma.blogspot
