i acctually didn't know about the meetup. I am a busy busy student, so i doubt i'd be able to make it very often, but i'd love details.

Hi dreadfull,

Go to meetup.com and find Vancouver Knitting Meetup .... there is a message board although it's not a real busy one like this though it's kind of nice to see people in your own area posting ... you might have to join (no fee) in order to see the calendar .... they have meetups during the week, some of them may be in your area, then every second Sunday at 2 pm they have one at Bojangles Cafe on Marinaside Dr. ... they all congregate on the leather sofas by the window, it's great informal atmosphere and a lovely cafe and I think 2-3 of the gals are students .... they have one upcoming on Broadway at Calhoun's Bakery and they have a yarn swap at Bean Around The World .... it's really enjoyable and you get to meet some new knitters .... I started attending a Knitting Night at Knitopia in White Rock as I am closer to there than Vancouver .... I'm a real new knitter so any help I can get is most welcome!

Toby

i see you have to pay to join.
I'm a poor poor art student, so i guess this just isn't for me.
too bad. I'll continue to just stich and bitch with my roomates
there's also a gathering at a LYS near my place that i might start going to.

You don't HAVE to pay to attend the meetups, only if you want the benefits ... I don't think everyone pays ... hope you can go sometime.
