When I wrote this spring about grownup friend-making in a new city, more than one person vouched for using sites like ravelry and meetup to make online friends who become in-person friends. I trust you guys, so I gave it a try.
This morning a ravelry neighbor and I met at the local Starbucks. It was like a blind date for a knitting friend hahaha. We both have small dogs with questionable taste in food, both moved to the area within the last year, and both spent time in Kenya (her for two years with Peace Corps and me for two weeks with a geography professor, so…I’m sure you can guess which one of us knows Swahili). But yeah, it was a lot of fun!
I learned where the best local Thai restaurants are, why sockyarn might be a better choice than laceweight for the Featherweight Cardigan, where to order dye-able yarn in bulk, and was inspired to finally give this stretchy interlock bindoff method a try.
