from our bright and shiny info page:

This group is now defunct, but there are a lot of active knitting, crocheting, and spinning groups in Seattle. Check out Capitol Hill Knitters (which, last I checked, meets every week at different places around the Hill) & Sheepless in Seattle (which has a running list of Puget Sound groups, most of which have a Ravelry presence or a Yahoo group or both).

Ravelry is still in beta, so put your email address in for a free invite. Wait time, last I heard, was about a week. It is totally worth it.

The Shawl That I Thought Would Never End [31 Aug 2007|12:42am]

hullabaloo
[ mood | accomplished ]

I finally finished the shawl!  The one I've been working on since I started coming to Stitch & Bitch! Actually I started it before SnB, but I did the majority of the work on it at those meetings and the Stitch & Pitch.  I worked on it some more on our recent camping trip and finished it off late last night/ early this morning!

Again with the posty goodness... [21 Aug 2007|05:48pm]

eckstacie
Okay, days of the week are even across the board except for Saturay. There's also an overwhelming response for once a month at rotating locations.

Considering it's unusually hard for everyone to make it to a weekly meeting (as we've seen in the past), I thought it'd be nice to combine the two options:

How about we do once a month, early afternoon on a Saturday? Roughly 4pm until people scatter for Saturday night events??

I know that *everyone* didn't vote for Saturday, but hopefully we can work something out.

Please discuss.

[Clean-up update] [16 Aug 2007|12:09pm]

marginalia
[ mood | mod-hatty ]

as promised, we cleaned up the membership today. we kept you if we know you, if you responded to the poll, or if you responded to the community purge entry. we felt this was not an unreasonable move, since less than 25% of members bothered to respond.

i am sure there are folks who were just not around to comment, so if you are still interested in this community, you are more than welcome to request membership again. we just ask that you take the poll either before or after rejoining.

thanks!

Membership purge! [13 Aug 2007|09:40pm]

shinyredtype
While we were figuring out a new meeting time and place, it seemed only appropriate to do a membership purge. Lots of people who joined the community a while ago have never actually attended, and if we're going to be doing potlucks at people's houses, we'd prefer not to be posting our addresses to 50 people we don't know.

So...if you want to stay in the community, please to be commenting here by Wednesday morning!

Kthxbye! :)

Caffe Vita meetups [06 Aug 2007|02:54pm]

Are these still happening? I went with a friend last night and we found only one other clueless person. We had a nice night regardless, but we were all three mystified. Has it moved?

sock assistance [12 Jul 2007|09:59pm]

jennnk
I'm doing a sock swap and my giftee has said that she has high arches. Somehow, the fact that she mentions this leads me to believe that it's important when knitting socks, but I can't find anything about it in any of my books or magazines. I'll continue looking online, but can anyone shed light on the issue for me? Oh, and I'd ask her what she usually does, but she's never knit socks before!

Stitch & Bitch Tonight [17 Jun 2007|01:55pm]

hullabaloo
[ mood | exhausted ]

Ladies,  I am exhausted (festival is finally done),  and I just wanted to let you know that if SnB is happening tonight, I won't be there.  I believe I would pose a danger to other drivers on the road - well, more so than normal ;)

I hope it is on for next Sunday, 'cause I'm going to be housesitting in the Mt. Baker neighborhood!

hi folks! sorry about the spam last night -- i don't have a home computer right now. i deleted & reported it, and set the community on moderated membership & members-only posting. moderating basically means "i look to see that you are a real person and then add you". i'll be updating the userinfo while i am at it. peace out :)

[ mood | busy ]

i don't know if anyone else was planning on coming tonight -- a few of you are out of town, i think -- but i think i need to just stay home tonight and Get Things Done. oddly, when you have plans for 20 movies in 25 days, plus, you know, work & a smattering of a social life, things like cooking & laundry get slightly neglected. i was starting to forget what my apartment looked like.

(if i am wrong and there is going to be some great number of you attending, plz to let me know. it'd be at vita again.)
