I am a fairly new knitter. This will be my 3rd summer knitting. I live in Redlands California. This looks like a pretty nice group. I actually joined because I saw a couple of posts looking for groups to knit with. I thought I could share where I go. There a nice bunch of women who meet.
I often go knitting at Knitting Knight at the Yarn Deli in Redlands. I have received a lot of help from Sharon and Becky there. We meet every Wednesday from 6-9 pm. They do not scrutinize that you have bought all your knitting supplies from them. It is a pretty new store with a limited selection of yarns, though they have some really nice ones that are natural fibers.
It's nice to be a part of your group.
