I Knit Around

Tuesday, May 30, 2006

Nashua Area Knit Groups, May 31 - June 11

The Group Report

I missed out on Thursday Night Knitting Around for the first time last week, due to a mild bronchitis. I'm much better now, though.

Sunday at Borders, the SnB-NH knitters decided would happen outdoors at Greeley Park instead. Sort of a dress rehearsal for our upcoming World Wide Knit in Public Day on June 10th. So they gathered up near the picnic area around 11 a.m., and knit as long as they could stand it. Word is that everyone had a good time!

Seasonal Changes

And that, friends, is why SnB-NH Borders meetings should be verified via e-mail to the group whether anyone will be attending - or where and when they will actually be happening!

For the weeks that the group meets at Panera, I have offered to serve as the "anchor" - the one person who will be there as unfailingly as possible, so no one ever has to wonder if anyone will be around or not. If anyone is able to make the same commitment to the Borders weekends, that could remove any doubt for those planning to come knit there.

To keep informed about any changes, please visit both the EKL or SnB-NH groups on the web, or remember to look at this blog every Tuesday for these calendar listings.

Upcoming Special Event -

World Wide Knit In Public Day, Saturday, June 10th - The SnB-NH group is planning a potluck picnic for the afternoon, 2 - 5 p.m., in Greeley Park in Nashua. This is open to the public, and it's not necessary to participate in the picnic itself to attend - just bring your knitting and something to sit on!

Please visit the SnB group for more information. To sign up to bring a dish to the picnic, please select "Database" on the side menu at the SnB home page to find the sign-up list.

Add Your Meeting

If you have any knit gatherings planned in the Southern New Hampshire area that are open to the public, and you'd like to see them listed here, just drop me a line at crafty.kitty@yahoo.com with the details. Be sure to include Date, Time, Location, and Contact Info, as well as whether it's a one-time event or repeats on a regular schedule.

Knitting Groups for Wed., May 31 to Sunday, June 11

Remember, you can also view these events (and more) at the SnB-NH calendar at Yahoo! Groups.

Please note: where phone numbers are given for "Info", that is the contact phone for the location, not the knitters organizing the gathering. Since none of these events are officially coordinated by the host sites (except as noted), if you reach someone by phone and ask them about the knitting group, they might not have any clue what you're talking about.

Folkcat's Plans?

I expect to be at all the events at Panera Bread. As for Borders Sundays, Gryphon and I have started feeling the flea market bug this spring, and instead of driving down to Borders we will probably be spending those afternoons at the Hollis Flea Market. (At least the ones where it doesn't pour down rain!)

Happy Knitting!
