Hey, thanks Lori for inviting us to contribute to the Bay Area Knitters blog. I hope this turns into a great place to find out what's going on in knitting around the bay.
South Bay knitters are invited to join Santa Clara County Knitting Meetup, http://knitting.meetup.com/48/. We meet first and third Wednesday every month in Saratoga, once at a yarn shop & once at a coffee shop. Knitters of all skill levels are welcome, even very beginners, and we even have a few crocheters who come to knittng meetup. So don't sit home & knit alone, come knit with us!
