Yesterday I went to my first ever Stich n B*tch meeting!
The Covina Knotty Knitters have just started meeting and it was great fun!
I've wanted to go to a snb for quite some time but most of them are far-far away out in LA proper (not out here in the hinterlands). Finding this new group was a great suprise. We were a small but dedicated group and I learned all kinds of good stuff about stores around the area and classes. I really want to take a sock class and now I have a couple of leads.
The locale of our meeting was also great, Knitwitz. Super friendly staff and a good selection of yarn. I couldn't leave the store without purchasing a few things.
Another bonus, one of the requests for the evening was to bring a holiday pattern to share. I went online last night for the meeting and found a great cabled stocking pattern on the Pickin' and Throwin' blog.
Last year I looked for cool patterns and could find nothing. I'm very excited to have found this one.
The snb also gave me a couple hours of knitting time. Realizing that my ability to talk to newly met friends and count at the same time would be limited, I cast on for another baby hat.
Good progress was made.
So all and all, a very successful evening. Now I only have to wait a month for the next meeting!
