Stitch N Bitch

I discovered a local yarn store this weekend, and they have a weekly stitch n bitch on wednesday nights. A Stitch N Bitch is basically a get together for women who want to knit or crochet, and you can talk/bitch about whatever you want. Anyhoo, I LOVED the SNB! I was a little apprehensive about going since I can be painfully shy sometimes and I've never been the coolest person to hang with. Those ladies are so much fun!  They're funny and non-judgmental. One of the girls has BOTB just like me and also knits and cross-stitches. Another girl is engaged to a Native American (and is white like me too), so I think we'll be able to joke about the issues of being in an interracial relationship based on some of the comments she made tonight. I think I may be on my way to making some IRL friends. As a girl with few friends throughout life (but the ones I have are great!), I'd like to have a few more.

I wish the SNB was held every other night instead of once per week. I can hardly wait until next Wednesday. One of the girls goes to another SNB on Saturdays-I might go to that one too! I usually go to my mom's house on the weekends though, so I'm going to have to figure out what to do lol. Haha-I feel like such an adult! I can go out on my own without my shyness taking over! (they say its the little victories...)

I am so jealous, they don't have a SNB in my area. But glad you had a good time.

You could both start one...find some people on ravelry who are in your area, and say you're thinking of starting a SNB. I'd bet people would show up!
