NYC Knitting Meetup March 2018

It's baa-aaack! The second Sunday of each month seemed to work for y'all, so I'm cutting to the chase and posting it again. All fiber arts, all skill sets, and all projects (so long as they are portable) are welcome. We try to take over a spot on the balcony-type seating-area thing.

Revenge of the Taters

We may not have defeated the Geek Bowl, but to be fair, we couldn't really hear anything where we were sitting. This week we return to Phoenix Landing, where the sound system and the beer are better, for Geeks Who Drink trivia. The Taters land Wednesday at 7pm.

Hello Portland!

My journey has gotten me finally to the Pacific Northwest and I am slowly making my way up the coast. I should be in Portland on the 17th and I’m staying for a record breaking 2 weeks! I have long wanted to visit this hotbed of Metafilter, can we all get together for drinks or food or, I don’t know, it’s your city, you tell me where and when!
