I started a knitting group here in my town as well. Just a bunch of close friends that knit or just started or want to learn.
We have our first meeting this Friday and every Friday after that. We will change houses every week.
I have been bringing my finished projects to work, and now one of my co workers brings her knitting to work for me to teach her.
All the other co workers laughed their bags off (mostly guys) that I was knitting as I tend to be a bit rough on the edges, until they see the touques I have made and now they all want one in their favorite colors....
