I have "real" knitting buddies!
Well, I did it. I summoned up the courage to call two gals from our Enlisted Wives Club and asked them if they wanted to learn how to knit with me. And they said yes!

I'm on cloud nine!!! Man, I was nervous about calling, afraid I'd sound like a big dork but it went OK for the most part and I almost didn't inadvertantly say something totally stupid!

Could this become a huge knitting group? It's possible!

The gals are coming over Thursday @ 1 p.m. and I am oh SO excited!

Wish us luck...

Denise

I will! I'll have a full report ready.

Any idea what kind of snacks I can serve that won't make our fingers and knitting sticky?

Hmmm... you could have ...

Fruit chunks ... cheese pieces ... both served via toothpicks ...
Veggies and Dip is fairly neat, provided the veggies are given enough time to dry after rinsing them.
Smoothies are pretty good too b/c you could use spoons to snack instead of fingers

Just a thought ...
Good luck!

Only three of us so far, but it sure is a start!

Denise, that's great! There's nothing like sitting down with other knitters and sharing that. It's addictive. Hopefully you'll get them hooked!

Have fun!
Amy

Well congratulations! That's so great and I can't wait to hear how it goes.

Wish I knew people interested in knitting! Most people who know that I knit just nod their heads and then change the subject :(

Which is why I'm so glad for the internet and this forum!!
