Uh yeah.... I'm IN Laguna Hills!

I meet at the Yarn Lady every Friday at about 5pm. Technically social knitting is from 6-8, but some of us get there early. I don't know if you know yet, but the store was moved last July and has a new owner. Here's the website and address. I will definitely be there tomorrow (11/6). My name is Jan Lewis.

If this doesn't work for you PM me and maybe we can arrange another time to meet. I'm leaving next Tuesday for a week to visit my daughter in Wash DC, but normally I'm home a lot and would love to meet you.

I'm not in O.C. but I'm not far from there. I'm in Alta Loma -- just moved home 3 months ago after being gone from southern CA for 13 years.

You need to fix your profile then! Alta Loma is really pretty far from me, I'm in south Orange County. There's probably an LYS near you and maybe they have a social knitting group!

New to knitting and in So. OC if you ever meet up
Hi, Just started to learn 2 days ago and was shown the english way but like the look of the videos here, for the continental way. Easier said than done and wondering if that way is just hard for right handed people or not. I'm in L. Niguel and see there might be a few of us in this area. PM if you'd like to get together.
?? Does the Yarn Lady charge to join the social knitting stuff? The only time I've been there since it opened was when I was crocheting a project. While a very nice store it's not really set up for crocheters in terms of books or patterns but the yarn was devine!
So anyway, if this is still a looked at thread, let me know.
Thx, Nicole

No, no charge at all for social knitting! I'm there every Friday!! Last Friday we had a big crowd..maybe 12 or more people. It's from 6-8 (sometimes 9 although the store closes and door locked at 8) I'm usually there at about 5:30 or so.

There's both beginners and experienced knitters there and we can help with simple problems. If it's more than a simple question I suggest you take a class though. Those do cost money, but are so worth it!

As for technique... you'll hear people say continental is better and faster, but it's not. It's just different and while it's useful for things like fair isle it's not something you must know. The technique you should use is the one that works for you. I can knit both ways, but 99% of the time I use the english method, too.

Oh and while the majority are knitters there are crocheters at social knitting and the store owner, Ginger and a few of the other employees crochet a lot. They sometimes have crochet project classes, too. Check the website and you can see the basic classes.
