Snuggle Up!

Calling all needle artists! Beginning in July on a Sunday afternoon, Hands On Bay Area will start a new project in conjunction with The Snuggles Project. Join us to make small blankets and bring comfort to animals who live at the Peninsula Humane Association/SPCA. Please bring supplies including machine washable yarn. For more information on how to participate, visit here.

If you're not currently a member of Hands On Bay Area (it's free!), drop me an email; the address can be found on my knit blog. This project is good for folks who want to learn more about volunteering in their communities.

Posting to craigslist activity partners seemed only likely to result in acquiring a long string of bad knitting dates. (How DOES one stare awkwardly into their cuppa while pretending to ignore the signs that, clearly, this craft-based-friendship just isn't going to GO anywhere?!) So, I thought I'd try this. I am 28, a liberal democrat, in a serious relationship, a generally happy person, and a very experienced knitter. My likes include my tattoos, my dorky glasses, and my book collection. I'm a former art student, now a teacher. I've just moved to San Francisco, and this, girls, is not an easy place to make new friends. So, I am hoping you either want to create a new knitting group, or point me to an existing one, or invite me to join yours on a trial basis. (I promise to be well-behaved.) So, I'd appreciate any emails helping me to find people to knit with.

Hi Ainsley,

I emailed you a lengthy reply with some referrals and other info. Let me know if you don't receive it (and check your spam folder too).
