I am so excited! I have met a kindred spirit, yep another knitter who lives nearby. When we moved back up the coast I looked up our local area for a knitting guild or some such group but couldn't really find anything. We don't really have a decent LYS either, thank goodness for Ravelry and online yarn shops! Anyway we are going to make our own local group, and who knows maybe one day our own LYS! Well I can dream can't I? My new friend has started us off with a Ravelry group, now we just need to organise the when and where for official group meets.
