I think I'll try the starbucks in the borders near my work next time. They have lots of comfy couches... looks like the perfect spot to set up my knitting and laptop :o)
i used to belong to a knitting group (whiners r' us) that met at the nearest barnes and noble... so long as everyone had something from the starbucks cafe (since that's where we all sat) none of the other customers or employees could say anything because we were just knitting while consuming our items (there were less than half a dozen people that showed up).
The knitting group i belong to now is at the local library, much more relaxed and 2 of the members are librarians who are still on the clock, but the knitting group is one of their ways to draw people in. I get to take my kids (who pick out their books for the week and sit quietly reading, leaving us alone to knit... the librarian gave them each the metal harry potter bookmarks because she likes how well behaved and respectful they are LOL) unless dh is home for whatever reason or MIL has taken them to go play with their cousins (whom she babysits, they're too much for her since they're 5 and 6 year old highly active boys, having my 2 older kids there makes it easier for her she says because the older 2 can keep up with the younger two) then I go by myself.
