I have been lurking on the site since I started knitting around the first of the year. Frankly I don't feel I have been much of a contributor, but I have decided to do my part to organize my fellow men who knit. Below is a posting that you may have also seen on ravelry. Drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining a new group.
And now to the post:
I would like to start a new men's group in New York that would meet on Sunday nights from 5-7PM. The location would be Annie & Company knitting which is at 1325 Madison Avenue (93rd street). The group will basically be a SNB with a little beer or wine thrown in.
My work schedule doesn't allow me to attend a knitting group during the week so I assumed there were probably others like me who would like to meet on a Sunday. I also thought this would be a good time for those that live near the city, but would never come into the city on a weeknight to attend. Finally, for those who would drive in from outside Manhattan there is usually ample parking in the area on Sundays and you don't have to feed the meter.
The store closes at 5 and we would pretty much have it all to ourselves. There are comfortable chairs and also a large wooden table. Marcia (knittydavis) is a staff member and she will probably stick around to close up for us when it is over.
If you are interested drop me a line with your contact info. The goal is to have the first group on August 17th.
*** I will probably be posting this several places, so I apologize if you see it on a couple of groups.
