Knit in the Ham!!

Hi Monica! If you are out there and any other knitter or crocheter is interested in joining us this is for you too!

Knit in the Ham is a group Brook and I started after meeting each other via blogs! That's right Blogs! We found out that we were separated at birth and amazingly haven't crossed paths before! Heck our mom's are even the same age born in the same month and year!! Some of the folks in our normal circles of friends don't get our obsession of yarn, knitting, knitty gritty and all things related to it! So we started getting together once a week. Sunday has been the day of choice since most of the other LYS knitting groups meet during the week and we can't make it! I posted bulletins to my friends & Brook to her friends and friends of friends and so on via myspace and the group has grown to about 4 folks most coming when they can. We'd love for more folks to show up!! We don't stop with knitting. Brook and Robbie both crochet!!
Robbie, my old college roommate, has been crocheting for over a year comes almost every week just so she can work on her projects.
Mary, just started knitting a couple of months ago and loves it and comes when she's in town.
Ashley attended once and we'd love to have her back again, crochets & just learned how to knit.
Lori, just learned how to knit at the Wednesday night meeting after the super bowl.
And of Course Symone my daughter age 7 is the new little knitting instructor in the making.

We will help you with your projects, and can answer any questions you have.
You don't have to be at any level and we won't charge you for lessons (but buying a round would be very nice!) So I tell you what! Sunday March 4 come on out. Bring your yarn & needles and I'll show ya'll the basics to help you get started.
We are looking forward to seeing you there!!! Please come on out and have a brew and stitch a while.

Worsted Weight Yarn (Red Heart Super Saver is a good cheap one)
US Size 8 Knitting needles

Materials are available at wal-mart for a total cost of $4-5 dollars.
