Knitting buddies.

Recently (September), the Coastside Thursday night knitting group lost their spot at the Hatch Library and I volunteered to sponsor the weekly group at the Half Moon Bay Yacht Club facility.  We had just finished (mostly) a new addition, that was “well-lit” with nice tables and a lot of space.  The group fluctuates in size but usually at least a dozen knitters show up.  WOW.  Who knew?  I had no idea it would be so popular.  Of course, the footing will be trickier once it rains, but rain or shine, I get my 3 hours in.

Almost two years ago, I decided to start knitting at Peet’s Coffee in Half Moon Bay on Saturday mornings.  Marina and Anne went along with me (THANK YOU) and at least one of us has been there every week since then.  This morning, we had 2 new additions to the group, one of whom drove from South San Francisco (she found us on the Stitch ‘N Bitch site!), and the other whose sister came on Thursday evening and was “dragged along.”

I enjoy this group so much (same group, different locations).  After kids get tall and stop needing parental shuttles to playgroups, moms AND dads need new playgroups and these are mine!  I cannot imagine missing unless sickness or a high school class reunion or sail on the Bay got in the way.
