What sort of places are you looking for? Park, restaurant, coffee house?

I generally knit whenever and wherever. If I can find a comfy place to sit, I'll knit for a while.

I believe the Culver's in Monticello has a monthly or biweekly knitting club. That's more sub-suburbs than Cities though.
If the south metro would be better, I can ask my granma - she's in a quilting group that meets up at a coffee shop, and I know she's got friends that are into knitting.

Rudy's Coffee House in St. Paul, there is always one or several people knitting / crocheting.  Conversation on projects is inevitable.  Also, Groundswell in St.Paul Midway has knitters in most of the time, as it is connected to Borealis Yarn.  Crafty Planet also has a stitch n' bitch on a regular basis.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone! I live in St. Paul, but frequent eastern suburbs and also the Minneapolis area. Just looking for knitting friendly coffee, cafe or wherevers. I used to live just down the street from Borealis, and would pick up a skein or two from there back in the day, but I don't remember Groundswells - I'll have to check that out. Briemarie - where is Crafty Planet?

I also found out that Merlin's Pub has a drunken knitting night and Anodyne Coffeehouse has a community scarf that you can add onto in Minneapolis. Have yet to do the drunken knitting but added on a bit to the community scarf - cool idea!

Crafty planet is at 2833 Johnson Street NE in Minneapolis and they also have a little online store.  I'm moving from the suburbs to Dinky Town in September and I'm sure I'm going to need a place to get some quiet time from my 4 roommates.  Anyone know of good places biking/bus distance from University & 8th (near the 35 ramp) ?

The Coffee Grounds in St Paul, near Como, is very craft-friendly. We've had meet-ups there before, and Dave, aka One Daddio, who is in there a lot and on their art board, is a Craftster member.
