I’ve been pretty much obsessed with knitting for several years now. I go through spurts where I get more done than other times, but I nearly always have a project in progress. It’s great for keeping your hands busy on those LONG, boring plane flights.
When I moved to Shenyang, I was excited to meet a few other ladies who enjoyed knitting and crocheting, but none who got as excited about it as me.
What’s a girl to do?
Create more knitters and instill the obsession, of course.
So that’s what I did.
I waited until it got nice and cold outside and then invited my friends over for a nice little stitch&bitch. Fortunately, two were expecting new babies (who now join us for knitting, by the way.) so they were easy to convince. Most didn’t know how to knit when we started.
But let me tell you. They learned fast and are now nearly as obsessed as I am.
And now I have friends who enjoy shopping for yarn, and talking about new stitches, cast-ons, and the difference between wool and cotton.
If you’re interested in joining us, we meet on Thursday mornings around 9:30ish at Riverside Garden. Drop me an email for more details. We’re always looking for more people to brainwash with the joys of knitting.
