Someone has gotten smart enough to start a pints and purls group near me (within walking distance) Currently meeting at a local brew pub (the beer is GOOD). My first public knit outing :). it was a good time. i was one of three guys attending but the only one knitting...one was the husband of the coordinator of the group and says he does knit, but he did not, the other was a friend of theirs just hanging about.
The group was about 30 people! Some people worked the room just seeing what others were working on, introducing themselves. had two pints, finished one beer sock and it was 2.5 hours later!
