Men Who Knit in Los Angeles?

(insert the sound of a pin dropping here)

Come on, I know I'm not the only one. Any of you fellow Angelenos (as opposed to Angelenas) interested in meeting up for some social knitting?

I'm in Echo Park, but I wouldn't be opposed to driving, say, 15 miles to get in some all-male knitting action once a month. Anyone? Anyone?

Um, they's all sick. My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw all the male knitters in LA pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

Every person I encounter teaches me more about myself. Without whom not.

Wish you lived closer, I can't find any other male knitters in my area either. I did find one group, but I'll be the only guy there.

I do believe there are some guys from Los Angeles, but check Ravelry Men Knitting Retreats group and the Men who Knit group as well .

Thanks Andy, I will! MKR is definitely on my list of things to do "one of these days", but until then it would be nice to meet some of my local brothers.

I don't get a lot of free time and hardly ever go to la I live in long beach. I was going to a group here in long beach but I was the only guy so I stop. I go to the LYS that is by my work and now I'm teaching their made a good group of girl friend but still no men have really taken me up on meeting out here in the long beach are. I have a group of my friend that I've been teaching but we still haven't made time for all of us to get together and knit and crochet

The drive to LBC isn't so bad. I'd drive down there if we could find one or two others to join us!

well let keep on posting maybe we can get it to happen. I know Alamitos yarn bay company has a meeting on some Fridays but it's hard for me to get there from work on Fridays that's usually my late day at work. Let see if we can get this to work I will let my friend know to see if I can get them to come too.

Ed- If you ever get to Phoenix there's a group of about a dozen guys that meet on Wednesday evenings at CopperStar on 7th Ave. You're always welcome there?
