We've been trying to get something going on UD's Newark campus too... for those of us who don't have cars (or driver's licenses).
yeah, but that is limited to UD students, right?  Most UD events require you to be a student or only allow 1 or 2 guests per current student.

It doesn't have to be an official UD event. Lots of people come to campus and use places like the library to meet. There are study rooms with doors in the library itself and a common area with tables where people often gather to just hang out and talk. I've always been partial to the patio outside the library, except when the weather's cold and the smokers are out in earnest. I imagine if you just use the public areas it should be fine.

UD is so big that no one notices or cares whether or not you're affiliated (unless you try to use some of the services that are reserved only for students, staff, and faculty). No one's going to kick you off campus for not being a student, etc. Promise!

I just taught myself how to knit and would love other people to knit with! Smiley  I go to UD too, but I have a car on campus.  I also have an lj, that doesn't get updated much but I keep up with checking the communities and things.  <3

I've never even HEARD of that guest policy.  In my life.  And I'm from a UD-alum-and-employee family (and am an employee myself).

Anyone can join student groups; we have plenty of random non-students in the theatre group I'm on the board for.  If there was a policy like that, I'd just forego it and have the get-together at the Newark Free Library or Brew Ha Ha or something.

There was a post about getting a group going on the U)of_D LJ community a few weeks back.  Maybe we should try to get a meet-up going again.

I knit, too, thanks to metamurph there. Cheesy I'm in slower lower, though, so those meetings would be too far to drive to on Tuesday nights for me. I wish there were more knitters down here. Sad

Hi All!

It's nice to see a few Delaware based Craftster folks.  I live in North Carolina, but will be moving to Delaware in February since I'm taking a job at UD.  I learned how to knit last year and am trying to expand my skills so that I can produce more than "variations on a rectangle."   Smiley  I'd be interested in joining a group or taking a class.  Do any yarn stores there offer them?

If anybody has some advice on housing, I'd love for you to PM me.  I'm leaning toward renting a house or townhouse for a year so we can get a feel for the area and know where we want to live permanently.  Right now we are trying to decide if we should live in Newark or Wilmington.  Or is there someplace else we should consider?  The BF has a travel job and will need to commute to the Philadelphia airport quite a bit.  Would that be easier from Wilmington or would doing that make my commute to Newark really unpleasant?

I work at UD too and commute daily from N. Wilmington. It's about a half-hour to campus, and I generally leave about 6:45 in the morning (I drop my niece off at the bus stop, and tend to get to work REALLY early). I've found that the later it gets, the worse the traffic. I guess that goes without saying.

I've always considered N. Wilm. the halfway point between Newark and the airport. It's about the same either way, give or take a few miles. I'd love to move down to Newark sometime this year, though. I don't need to go to the airport much.

Anyways, welcome to UD! I'm in the ILL office in Morris Library, so look me up when you get in. That goes for the rest of y'all too - always a pleasure to meet crafty folk.  Grin

Hi everyone! I've been knitting about 6 years ago, but just moved to DE last year. I've been doing the rounds (Stitches with Style, Yarn Garden, Wool Gatherring, Vulcan's Rest).

I have this crazy feeling that I'm going to spend all year trying to come up with crazy cosplay knit stuff for Otakon.

So then, yay for knit crafts in Delaware!

I am a self taught knitter but not very advanced - just taking it slow and figuring things out as i go.  working on a handbag for my sister at the moment - it should be cute when finished!  yeah!

I know no one has posted here for a while, but I just came across this topic.  I am a grad student at UD, and one of the other girls in my office (craftster name: tjive) and I are just starting to work our way through the book Stitch and Bitch.  We started knitting at the same time, and have pretty much given a scarf to every single person we know! 

It would be fun to have a DE knitalong, and everyone post pics of what we are doing!
