I signed up for the knitters group over at http://knitting.meetup.com/
There's actually a group in my town, which, if I get enough courage, I might attend. But, I thought I'd toss out the website, considering most of us are close, but still "far" from each other too. Something might just be a little more local.
However, I'd still like to see if we can't get something once a month going.
