I already belong to a knitting & crochet group in my area. We knit in public in a restaurant.
That is so cool. I still can't find or get a group together here in Los Angeles.
Have you tried Ravelry? I did a search by location and there are lots of groups there. Try cutting and pasting this link into your browser:
You're in LA; widen your search; you just have to be prepared to spend several hours on the freeways. ;-)
I recently joined a knitting club near my home. BUT, I also take my knitting everywhere, friends homes, doctor's offices.....etc.
I am fortunate to belong to several knitting groups here in Casper. Mainly women, but we still have a great time comparing notes, etc. as we work on projects.
Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
Here in No. Indiana, I can go to a group at Hegamen Library in Porter, IN, which started out with less than 5 of us, a couple of yrs. ago & is now at least 25, but I'm the only man.
Also on certain days, I go to SHEEPS CLOTHING in Valparaiso, IN., where they have classses, alot of all types of yarn & everything else of that kind of craft stuff! I'm not the only man there but I'm the most frequent male customer.
I'm just alittle new at knitting-I learned to knit to make my daughter a bag graduation. Unfortunately, I did the bag in colors I like, she didn't. I'm being forced to do her another bag, obviously not by her. It'll be another shock for christmas-maybe
