Seattle Queer Stitchers

Last night I went to a Seattle Queer Stitchers knitting group met up. I had been conflicted about going because I love my Renton Knitters group that also meets on Wednesday nights.

However, my friend Donna from back in Texas, told me I needed to be around "my people" as she likes to call them. She is very supportive (and I think I'm the first really out lesbian she has ever know). She has also encouraged me to and was thrilled that I had found some people to met up with at Hot Flash Dance Party this past Saturday night.

And I'm glad I went the knitting group. The meeting was at Caffe Vita, a cute coffee shop in Capitol Hill. It was great fun to sit around knitting and talking about ex-girlfriends and such. Well, I didn't talk much about mine except to say that we recently broke up after 12 years. They were all appropriately sympathetic but not overly, which was just right.

Seattle Queer Stitchers meet twice a month, on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month. So I think I'll be splitting my Wednesdays between them and my Renton group. Yipee!

Yay for Queer Stitchers! Glad you were able to make it, the more queer stitchers we can get the better. :)

hi! you joined my Ravelry group & was excited to read your profile as I am also from Texas! Of course, I'm on the other coast from you, but I'm also glad to be able to wear wool for longer than two weeks.

I'd love to link to your blog from mine, but I'm afraid I still don't know how, lol. My "real" blog is on LJ & I can't seem to move around on Blogger quite as easily as on LJ.


I'm glad you signed up for Guilty Pleasures -- I look forward to chatting :)
