Any knitters in Calgary, AB?
I have a few knitter friends and would love to be able to organize a knitting group (possibly at knit one, chat too). Pls reply and we can figure out where everyone is in the city ( i am in cranston, but can use transit easily to get around), and go from there!

Thanks!

Hey Katy.

I'd still like to get together sometime. I have been uber busy with work and am now, probably, going into training for Calgary Transit but me and my friends have found Make one yarn store and we love it. Its the best store in Calgary so far (that I've been to). Maybe a bunch of us could get together for one of their knit and bitch sessions?

They have movie nights once in awhile too and I plan on rounding up a few friends to go there and knit and watch a movie. I'll let you know when they finally plan another and maybe you'd like to come?

That be great except that to get to make one yarns from where i live would be a hard haul (about 1.5 hours one way), and I can't really justify that. If you have any other ideas that would be worth looking into!

I think the first thing to do is to find out where everyone is so that we can figure out a central meeting spot. i am in the SE in Cranston, near the bridlewood train station
I am more that willing to travel tho to another spot that is more central. What about everyone else?

Also, how wften can everyone meet? I would love to shoot for a once a week get together on the weekend, but it would depend on how everyone esle thinks it would work. If we think that most of us could make it on a weekly basis, then i say go for it!

Ideas?

Hello
Im in Acadia, SE Calgary...right by the Heritage train station...so Im close to Cranston and I too could travel. Meeting once a week sounds great maybe on a Sunday afternoon (that's my day off) or whenever works for the majority.
I think once a week sounds nice...although once finals come around, once every two weeeks may be more realistic.
I look forward to swapping ideas and techniques!

Hi everyone!
I live on the west side of town, near COP. Hopefully we can find some more knitters. I can pretty much go anywhere. And could pick someone up if needed.
Chow for now.... :xxx:

Well, from the two people I have heard from, it seems like somewhere in the chinook area works for us? Maybe we should just set something up for a week from this weekend, and see how many of us show? We could maybe put up an announcement on the general board....and if you have posted here and still want to come, feel free! The more the merrier!

Now I need to know are you two into that? And where on earth are we going to meet? I am thinking a funky coffee house where someone is willing to go in and talk to the owners and see if that would be a possibility of hosting there? I am thinking a date of Sunday the 14th (but come on, how many of us besides me are able to make such short notice!! lol) or more appropriately, the 21st? Maybe from 130 to 3ish in the afternoon?

Please post back and let me know what y'all thinking, k?

Maybe a post on the general to see if there are more interested would be a good idea! There might be others in Calgary. You up to doing that Kat?
Let me know.....
