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.
