Hmmm, if I had a few weeks' notice, I'd be able to meet in NYC. Other than that, I don't know about driving up to Binghampton from MD. That's a lot of driving for us.

Maybe some of y'all who live in MD/VA would like to get together in Baltimore or Annapolis?

I live in CT (New Canaan--near Stamford) but I could make it to Western Mass. I am a new knitter--but would love to meet others!

This is good! Like I said before, I know the northeast is a pretty general term, but at least if we get an idea of who's interested, it'll be easier to pick a place to meet. Me, I'm willing to explore, so I'll prolly show up at all of em!
I am pondering my atlas as we speak, but so far it looks like this will definitely end up being a little more regionally specific... DC/MD/VA, New England-ish, and PA/OH (Hi Carol )... I'm going to do a little research and try to find cities that are not only central to most, but have at least two good yarn shops!!
And, this probably won't be until after the holidays - I personally usually end up being completely exhausted and sick of traveling during November and December. So as a very rough estimate, let's say the second or third week of January...
Oooh, I'm so excited... wish I had Beld's dancing banana right now...

It makes it a lot easier if you can carpool! I hate to drive too.

Yeah, and if you carpool, everyone but the driver can use the drive time to knit!! (I volunteer to drive... I just recently figured out the reason that I've been feeling carsick every time we go on a long trip is because I can't knit in the car without getting nauseous :crying: )And we can all sing knitting songs, and tell knitting stories....

I live about an hour and a half from Amy in North Hampton. I notice Ingrid and Sogrammatical are not far either. It would be a fun day trip. The only thing is I can't do it on a Saturday.

Beldeeee!!! We could meet in Buffalo! Carol and Cate could come. I know there are a couple people around St. Catharine's in Ontario. Next time you get out here, we will make a date!

I like the idea of Buffalo! I could even make my friend Chuck drive me if I promise to buy him Mighty Taco. :P
