This week Ariel and MJ are joined by Mia of the Stitches ‘n YOs podcast to talk about knitting groups. Ariel and Mia met years ago at a knitting group in Oregon, and they share their experiences there and with other knitting groups.

Knitting Groups

All of us have been in various knitting groups over our knitting careers. We talk about where to find one, and what we like and don’t like.

How do I find a knitting group?
  • Search ravelry for groups in your area
  • Ask at your LYS
The Good
  • Meeting other people interested in knitting
  • Getting social time
  • Seeing what patterns are new and exciting, and what other people are knitting
The Not-So-Good
  • Knitting group drama
  • Being judged based on what you are knitting
  • Getting distracted while working on more complex projects
  • Boring food choices / being tempted by half-price baked goods

Do you have a knitting group? Tell us about it!
