I started a knitting group in my area, and let me be the first to tell you I was VERY nervous! I soon realize that I had nothing to be nervous about. When knitters get together, there is no judgement. No one cares what you drive, how much $$$ you have, or about your clothes, how big your rear end might be...or any of that. It's the knitting we all care about and want to hear about.
One of my members is a best-selling author, one is a pharmacutical (sp?) consultant, and there are 2 military wives who barely have a pot to pee in. There's no way to tell them apart...we all have one obsession: YARN!
Btw...I'm the one with the enormous arse!
