Heh, I feel the same way. When people find out I knit, generally their response is, "Really? That's neat. What are you knitting? So anyway, then I said to *him*..."

I'd delight in some knitting fans I could chat with face to face.

However, all you digital faces are a perfect subsitute.

Oooooooooh what fun Denise! I live in a very small rural town and have often considered posting a flyer at our local grocery store looking for knitters who would like to form a group. Hmmmmmm, your story just may have given me the nudge I needed to that!
And for another easy, non-messy finger food, how about a bowl/s of yogurt covered nuts?
Have fun!

I totally agree! I recently found and met with a local knitting group. When I told my mother about it, she said, "So what did you do?"

ekgheiy: "We sat and knit."
Mother: "And that's all?"
ekgheiy: "Well, no that's not all. We began by introducing ourselves. Of course, we talked about knitting. But the conversations would inevitably spiral away from knitting."
Mother: "But basically you sat around knit."
Exasperated ekgheiy: "You just don't understand!"

My dear mother doesn't have a hobby, so I don't think that she'll ever understand. Only those who have hobbies would understand of purpose of a [ fill in the blank w/ a hobby ] Group

You're going to have a great time foldedbird. I've been going to my local StitchNBitch for a few months now. But we 'only' meet twice a month, so I come here to get my knit-social fix. There's nothing like knitting with others actually in the same room tho.
