I'm in Duncan. Perhaps we could meet occasionally in Nanaimo, which would be in between Port Alberni and Duncan. :-)
I've been wanting to form a knitting group in Duncan. I had hoped to have it at my place on either Wednesday or Monday evenings. The number would be limited to about 8 people (like one Nanaimo group I visited) and each person would have to bring whatever they wanted to drink, ex. juice, wine, beer.....
If anyone is in the area and is interested, yell.
On the other hand, if a group in Duncan didn't pan out, I'd be willing to travel to Nanaimo.
