Ooooh the fun!
Y’all can laugh all you want… but I had fun! And that’s more than I’ve been able to say about here in a long time. Since moving here I have been LOOKING high and low for a knitting group. I started a regional group on Ravelry in hopes of finding some folks locally that I could meet with, start our own get togethers sort of thing just like I had in my old neighborhood in NC.. but I seemed to keep hitting a dead end…
Well, I had sort of ignored my Ravelry group for a bit, kinda because I get easily sucked into hours of surfing Ravelry sometimes and just don’t really have that kind of time… so I popped into my group the other day to find out that a semi-LYS for me was hosting a monthly get-together at the shop! The shop is Mountain Knits & Purls, in East Stroudsburg. The shop owner was absolutely lovely, and her shop.. wow… wonderful! Great selection, great prices, and great discounts! 20% off in your birth month on your purchases… free patterns with the purchase of yarn, and even a discount section! Fabuloso!
The teaching room was wonderful, large, well lit and the group of Ravelry ladies there were all such a pleasure to meet! I had such a fun time meeting and chatting with Felicia, who I selected to be in my group for the Cocoa Swap when I saw her address was as near to mine as anyone who might randomly sign up!
I did manage to finish the 3rd dishcloth for my sister’s birthday gift… and started the 4th and final one before making the 50 min drive home 🙂
I’m finally thinking that it might not be so bad here afterall…
I took some photos of the shop and will post them tomorrow and write up a report for Anne’s LYS blog! 🙂
