Sorry I've been MIA from the group. I started a new job which
requires a ton of travel (I have had some good knitting time on
airplanes though). I'm attaching a notice for an event that takes
place tomorrow in Union Square. I went last year. It's a little
chaotic but fun to see so many people enthusiastic about knitting.
I'm hoping to see you all soon.
