chat room?
I love it that I, theoretically,can connect with other knitters.
I live in the middle of nowhere and knitting is my big thing ( I do other things, not to worry ), so coming into a chat room for knitters would be wonderful. I have tried a number of times to connect with others in the chatroom but there is never anyone there when I try. Are there specific times? or days?
I would love to know, thank you.

I don't go into the chat room very often but what I've seen others do is post a thread basically setting up a time. They'll say who wants to chat on Thursday at 5:00 eastern or something like that. You might try doing that and see if you get any takers.

Yes, I used to check in most evenings, but it's like the Wide Open Empty these days.

I'm with you, I dearly love to connect with fellow knitters! Spent New Year's Eve with some really great folks in the Chat room - really made me feel good. Nice people, knitting, chatting - what more could anyonw want? Oh yes - one of Dottie's Toddies. ;-)

Yes, those Dottie's Toddies were tasty as I recall!

Where do you live? I'm in a smaller city in NC, and I was astounded to find a quite active group in my area that meets at least twice a week with 20-40 participants. I found them through Ravelry in groups by location.

I'm going to their meeting this week, I think.

I'm in Southern Maryland, at the tip of the Chesapeake Bay, sorta.

But I went to college in High Point NC for a couple of years. Nice and friendly place, as I recall.

Where in NC are you?

Woody, the best thing to do is grab your knitting, open up the chatroom and knit while you wait for someone to join you. I do that sometimes if no one is in the room. There are those that would rather not do that and just don't bother if no one is there.

If I knew there was a specific time for a chat and I was around, I'd be happy to join you. I wonder if we could set up some regularly scheduled chat times like they do on some message boards...

Yeah, I would too -- I've been in there a couple of times, no joy. I suppose people could just post a thread asking if anyone's up for a chat!
