My fantabulous Sunday night knit meet up disbanded and I was saddened. In my infinite wisdom I decided to start one of my own. First I posted the idea on Ravelry, then I sent a message to our local (South Park) women's mailing group. The response was really great.
I choose to "host" it at Night & Day Cafe over on Brown Street, as I have banished myself to that place on a few Sunday nights to get out of the house. There was a great turn out and it was great to have a cross-pollination of Rav and SP women. We had three women who were from my neighborhood - one bearing cookies from another neighbor who couldn't come. I'm telling you it's like living in a really cool version of Mayberry. One woman drove down from Troy, which is quite a hike. Someone had just joined Rav that morning and showed up leaving her 5 year old twins and 2 year old with the hubs. Tres cool. A Dayton fire fighter who told how she likes to bug the male fire fighters by knitting and painting her toe nails in the fire house. She is really funny. My buddy Chris and I were represented those who were members of both communities.
Initially I had planned to do it every other week but the response was so positive that it's going weekly folks, so come join us.
More entries, once I catch up on sleep I will follow about my adventures in the work force this week.
