I'm up for a Western Mass trip! I live in Central Mass and have been dying to get out that way! Plus meeting some new knitter-buds would be cool too

I'm so glad to see everyone getting enthused about this...
Vic - - you're a brave woman, volunteering your house! I probably would, too- but only if I could kick DH and kids out for the day.... and that won't happen :rollseyes:
Well, this is great, I've definitely gotten some good ideas - I personally don't mind a longer drive, but I know for a lot of people it's just not doable...
HeatherFeather - I drive through Catonsville every time I go to DC/Virginia I know it's not too far from here, maybe two hours...
Good start, keep 'em coming!

A meet up would be fun! I'm in Western Massachusetts, pretty close to Amy actually. I can even ride my bike down to Webs!

Unfortunately, I've got a pretty small travelling radius due to not having a car. If there's one within a short bus ride from me, I'd love to attend!

Also, Cate! Do you live in NY and go to school in Annapolis or the other way around?

I'd rather head over to Mass. than down through the city. My concern with Binghamton area is driving for 3 hours and having to turn around and come home. I'm open to discussion, though. Bovina would be good for me, too.

Bovina Center is 3 and a half hours from me. This looks more complicated than an Illinois gathering. Perhaps I should recuse myself from making arrangements since I'm not convenient to anyone. I'll just show up if I can when you decide to get together.

Same for me. A lot of your suggestions just wouldn't work for me. Good luck, though! :D

I would love to get together- I hate to drive, but depending on where it is, I could do it. Rebecca, depending on what direction we need to go in, maybe we could team up and go together? I guess it just depends on what area would be the most central to the most people who are interested, and where we would be able to gather. My house is more that open to anyone who'd like to come, but since I'm in the Philadelphia area, I'm not sure how local that is to all you NY people. This is, assuming we are talking day trip- if you want to stay the night, you'd have to sleep on the floor with the kitties!!

I'm in New Jersey, Central -- So I would LOVE to get together....if it wasn't too far away....I could do NYC or Jersey area.

I'll be checking in to see what we can all do!

Thanks for the suggestions!
When you aren't knitting you can always
be cooking, or cooking up a new knitting

OMG, OMG, OMG!!! If I can ever get down to southern Ontario to see my family, I would sooooooo much go to NY as a side trip. I would do a 3+ hour drive no problem!
