They came over one day and when one of them found out she couldn't knit a blanket with novelty yarn (on her first day of knitting), she gave up and never came back. So that didn't work out.

I wouldn't mind starting a group with strangers, but I'm having a hard time coming up with a good public spot to host in. I was reading in the SnB that it should be a non-crowded cafe-type that doesn't mind if you take up chairs and nurse a drink all night. The only "cafes" we have in town are Barnes & Noble which is ALWAYS PACKED and Panera Bread which is ALSO always packed.
HEy there-
Where in Illinois are you? Im in Davenpotr, Iowa..and have found two for 30 somethings ( which i went to for awhile but its more of a gossip fest, and the other is at the bettendorf library and is an very older croud.) i debated on starting my own group as well..let me know where you are and maybe we can meet up sometime!
