What would you guys think about meeting up for a weekly chat (or two)? I could create a quick n' dirty Yahoo! group (it comes with a chat room) so there isn't any difficult programming required.

If you're game, re: with a what a good day and time for everyone is to this thread.

We could pick some topics to loosley chat about...or not, if yall don't want to.

Let me know!

I post all the time anyway, so I'm up for it. Yahoo works great for me too as it's the only IM that I use. Later in the evening works for me. If it's during the day, it just depends. Weekends are a whole different matter.

As for topics, I could make it quick n' dirty

Yay! I'm up for it...

I've had trouble before with Yahoo but I'll try it again! ... If we all have AOL or AOL mesanger we can chat there easy too.

Tuesday are out for me! Gilmore Girls is on. :wink:

I'll mark Tuesdays as a no-no for you, Nun.

Just a heads up, we won't be using Yahoo! IM for the chat. Once I create the group, I'll send everyone an invite to the group, and once you've joined you'll just go to the groups URL and click on the 'Chat' link on the left-hand side.

I should have the group created by today, so anyone and everyone interested in chatting PM me your e-mail address.

Here's the URL for the group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/khchat/

If you're too impatient to wait for the invite via e-mail, you can go to the link above, and click the link Join This Group! on the right hand side. It will tell you that your membership has to be approved, and I will approve it.

Any Europeans wanna chat?!

Egeria~

I generally see you posting in the late mornings. I bet you could chat with us stay-at-home people, if there's enough of us. That is unless you're at work right now and posting. Then I guess it wouldn't work out so well.

I just signed up. It's not a chat room, right? It's just a list-serve like this. Or will we pick a time and use some IM to have a knitalong or SnB party 8) ?

I've just approved everyone I have received notices for.

The group is "all-inclusive". There IS a live chat room, a message board, a place to post pictures (Photos), files, a database, etc. The main use will most likely be for chat, but everyone is welcome to use everything else as you wish.

There is a test run going at 6pm Pacific time tonight (Tuesday). That's 7 Mountain, 8 Central, and 9 Eastern. We'll be there until the last man (and woman) is standing (typing).

Yes, you can drop in any ole time you wish...but I hope to figure out a time for a weekly chat if everyone will tell me what time zone you are in and what a good time for all of you is.

See ya in chat!

Bring your knitting, knitting questions and ideas...favorite patterns, and of course something to b*tch about.

Forgot one thing...I'll be on all of these IM ID's throughout the evening if you have any questions about getting into the chat or need to be approved to get in.

MSN: denisehunley@msn.com AND denisespeckman@hotmail.com
AOL: beadedbrat
YAHOO: babied0ll@yahoo.com (that's a zero) AND neiceyyy@yahoo.com

I'll also be checking my e-mail regurlarly for those of you without an IM program.

Beldaraan, well I usually post before I go to work, which is around 7.00-7.30am my time.

I also post when I get home from work and on weekends so I'm sure one of these days I can meet up with you guys in the chat room.

Would be very cool!

Yes, I had a lot of fun getting to know some of the people that hang out around here. The friend list on my Yahoo IM got a lot bigger last night too. I think the rule is that we have to talk about something knitted related at least once in every hour. Sadly though, I didn't actuallly get a lot of knitting done last night and Valentine's isn't getting any farther away.

I'd need to change the settings on my pc @ work to drop by & chat during the day, but I don't want to change these settings ;) .

But I'm sure my home PC will let me chat just fine. So I'm on Eastern Standard Time (or are we at Eastern Daylight Time ... I forget ...) Anyhoo... I'm in USA MD! ;) Mondays nights would be absolutely great ... I can knit, chat with you guys and ... um ... well ... watch wrestling too (Yay WWE!!) :oops: *giggle* .... as you can see, I try to multi task with my hobbies ;) Sundays and Fridays are good too, but Tu, W, Th are "iffy".

Nope, we haven't picked a day yet. Still waiting for you guys to tell me what day/times are good for you.

If I don't hear sumthin' soon, I'm gonna pick 2 days a week based on time zones...hehehe. Like, one that coincides with the time zone of Antartica...and the other..hmm. Pluto!

So drag your knitting to the computer, most of us knit and chat at the same time. I know I will be...I'm determined to finish this needle case if it kills me!
