Hey all,
I know there are lots of knitting groups in the area--anyone attended any regularly? I know there's the Woolcott (in Harvard Sq) one that meets at the Redline bar. I only went once, but it was well-attended and it was so fun to see new projects!

I know there's another one at the Brookline Booksmith and at the Somerville Public Library (the branch near Davis Sq). Anyone been to those? How are they?

I sort of coordinate a small group of knitters (and the occasional crocheter, seamster, etc). that gets together about once every couple weeks. Though, the summer's just way way way too hot for such activities. But hopefully we'll get started back up soon. (anyone interested is welcome to join, too--just email me!).

--Simone

There is a yahoo group for many knitting stitch-n-bitch groups that meet around Boston/Cambridge called stitchnbitch-boston.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/stitchnbitch-boston/

I have not attended any of the groups regularly, actually I have only been to one of them, and only one time.  However, this yahoo group is used for schedule changes and stuff like that, it's pretty low-volume as far as emails go.

My friends and I were doing okay with our own little group for a few weeks, then it fell apart faster than it started... we keep talking about, but we haven't met for almost a month... *sigh*
I just signed up to the yahoo stitch 'n' bitch message group and thinking about attending this Tuesday's meeting at Peet's (Harv. Sq.)... othan than that, all I can say is GOOD LUCK!!!

It's great to hear about these groups, but I wonder if there are any in Jamaica Plain.  My friends and I get together at each other's apartments, but it would be great to find a more formal group for the times my friends aren't available.  I think there is a new yarn shop on amory street.  does anyone know if they do a group?

Ok, I'm answering my own question.  There is a new yarn shop in JP called Circles and they have knitting groups there.  It's located right by the Green Street T station at 555 Amory Street.  The woman who owns it is really nice and the space is new, clean, and not that crowded.  They even have tea to drink and couches to sit and knit on.  I really need to start hanging out there.

Allison at Circles may just as well be my hero.  I probably drive her nuts, but I love to just hang out there and knit away.  There's a group that meets on Saturday nights that meets at Circles and then moves on to knitting at Doyle's, I haven't made it yet, but I hope to this weekend.  Knitting and drinking is one of my favorite things.
