I posted these all over my building today. I had to come up w/ something besides "Stitch n Bitch" because of the whole office thing.

I think it's really cute! I love the title- "knit & nosh"!

Thanks! I don't know why it was important to have alliteration in the title, or have it rhyme, but it had to be one or the other. In this place, I wasn't risking "Stitch & Bitch"! So I just sat in the car at lunch and tried to think of any eating-related word that went with knit, stitch, etc.  I was so afraid I'd forget before I got back to my desk! I scanned some of my own knitting for the background. Or rather, had already scanned it and thought it would work.

I've been waiting for the woman who had it last time around (when I learned to knit) to start it up again -- didn't want to step on toes -- but we talked today and she was happy to have me organize it. The 2 gatherings are very different. The last one was kind of invitation-only, not out of snobbishness, but more a word-of-mouth, plus she was offering to teach anyone that showed up. I posted these flyers in every kitchen in the building. The last one was in a conference room, which means someone had to book it, and we occasionally got bumped. I figured we could just meet in the building's common area. But the concept is the same.

I think I'm going to take a spare pair of needles and a little bag of yarn scraps (the little leftover balls) in case people drop by and want to learn. It's how I learned (except I had to go get yarn & needles first).

that's sweet.
i'd love to set one up at my uni, but i don't think too many people would show *pout* and my knitting buddy has deferred this semester.

I think a couple people will show. My old teacher, probably, since she requested the day, and I received an email from someone hoping this wasn't an old flyer (I should have dated it). I don't have a lot of knitting buddies, and recent events have made me realize that I need to make more friends, so I thought I'd give this a try.

I looked online first for an official/established SnB group (regardless of what it's called), but haven't been successful. A few of the stores have things, but they either charge a fee just to come and knit (and require that you use their yarn) or are too far away.
