5:22 pm - Anyone Wanna Take Over

Hey guys. Your friendly neighborhood group creator here.

Well, not really neighborhood anymore. I moved to Jacksonville becuase there really were no jobs in my field in Orlando.

So I figured it would be only appropriate to offer moderatorship of the community to someone who is in the city.

Hope everyone's doing good. How's the weather there? I do miss the city and will probably be visiting everyonce in a while.

8:49 pm - Meetup Website

Hey, I found this website. There is a group meeting at the Florida Mall this Sunday, if anyone is interested.

If you want to find groups in your area, just type in your city.

Hi! My name is Laura, I'm 29, and a grad student at UCF. I mostly crochet, but do a little knitting too. So I'm glad to see that there is a community like this. Last year I tried to organize a club at UCF, Knitting Knights, but there wasn't enough interest, so it never got off the ground.

Look forward to being a part of this community. :)

12:01 pm - Hello

Hello world!

This is a little community I am starting for knitters/other crafters in Central Florida.

Part of the reason I've started this is, well, there wasn't a community for Central Florida knitters on lj. [EDIT: There is a community called beachknitters]. And I know there are knitters around. In fact, when my roommate and I picked up knitting, we found out that a lot of people we knew or had classes with knit. But there is no Stitch n' Bitch Orlando (let alone for Melbourne, Titusville, Sarasota, or Bithlo). In fact, I had trouble finding any knitting groups in Orlando at all.

And don't get me started on trying to find a LYS. Through some quirk of fate I found one, about an hour away from where I now live, but almost on the way to my family's house.

So I thought this might be a good place to discuss knitting circles, LYS, warm weather knitting, crafts in general, chocolate, whatever. And maybe eventually start up a semi-regular knitting circle.
