Hello jla721, I live on the other side of town but am often passing through or near Affton. In fact, I'm often shopping at the JoAnn's at MacKenzie and Gravois. Would you be interested in meeting at the Bread Co or Starbucks? How about those at Loughborough and I-55? If this sounds agreeable send me a PM so we can set up a date/time. We could discuss knitting, and show our WIPs and FOs. I don't have much to show, still learning this craft, but I'm learning something new everyday, and it be would fun to talk about it with others.

Also, anyone else in STL who's interested in meeting could also PM me.
Cynamar, I'm also often in/near Maplewood, Brentwood, Richmond Heights areas.

And since I live in North STL city right off I-70 I could easily meet with Demonica from St. Charles. Perhaps we could find a halfway point? There's a Bread Co. on St. Charles Rock Road near 270 that might be a good place to meet. Of course these are all just suggestions so if something else is better for you just speak up. Just PM me if any of this is of interest.

I've been often knitting alone in public at Shaw's Coffee shop in The Hill neighborhood. I would like it a lot if anyone wanted to join me there.

*********************

I should also mention that I do know there are knitting groups already in this area, but I haven't participated in any of them. One is at Kirkwood Knittery and they meet Thursday nights at 7pm. I've been to the store only once to buy yarn and it so happened that it was knit night when I stopped by. But I didn't join them that night.

There is another shop in the Delmar Loop called Knitty Couture. I haven't been there at all but their website says they also have a knit night on Thursdays at 5pm.

And there is yet another knitting group that meets at the St. Louis County Library Headquarters on South Lindbergh. I don't know their schedule, but you can contact the library to get more information about that. I think they meet there once a month.

And I've heard of a knitting group that meets at Kaldi's Coffee in Chesterfield. I don't have any info on that group, but it probably would be easy to find.

There also may be other groups but these are just the ones I've heard of so far.

The Greater St. Louis Knitter's Guild, lists an extensive array of knit-ins, also some in areas pretty far out from St. Louis city, like Arnold, Ellisville, High Ridge, St. Charles/St. Peters, Fairview Heights, IL., and more...
