"Slower-lower" Sussex County here! I just joined today, though I haven't even learned yet to cast on. Where are you?

I'm in Dover. Does anywhere know of a knitting or spinning group close to Dover? I really don't want to drive long distances, especially at night.

I'm in Dover too. There is one group that meets but they advertise as machine knitters. Are you from the base?

No, not from the base. Just a citizen. :)

I have been trying to think of a place for a knitting group to meet in Delaware and then maybe starting a "meet-up" group on http://meetup.com

But I have no idea where would be a good place to meet. Any ideas?

Maybe the library? I would be interested. I have checked meetup but never actually tried to start one up.
If you want to email me, its weidaeclipse@hotmail.com

Hi! I'm sorry I haven't posted back here sooner. I was planning to look for a place for knitters to meet last week, but then life happened and my didn't. :roll:

Anyway. I'll try again this week.

I looked on the library website and, if I read correctly, to use a conference room, you have to pay a fee. I don't know if there is a lounge type seating area in the library or not. It's been a while since I've been inside and don't remember a place like that. Let me know if you find place. :)

Just wanted let all the Delaware knitters know about the Sit 'n Knit planned for this Saturday (Nov. 10) in Smyrna. Here's the information I got from lindalu on Ravelry:



The first meeting of the 'Smyrna Sit 'n Knit' (name by Jackie, owner of the Gathering Place) will be on Saturday, Nov. 10 from 1 pm - 3 pm.

I'm so excited!

Hope the date/time suits your schedule.

There are 2 or 3 people I may contact about joining us, and Jackie is going to put a sign in the store window.

The address for The Gathering Place is 34 South Main St in Smyrna, the phone number for the store is 659-5123, and there generally is plenty of parking on the street.

I'm planning to bring danish (baked locally and delicious). Do you have any other suggestions or ideas?
