I forgot to update you...I did go last month and met some nice ladies. It's a good mix of ages and levels of expertise. It's at a LYS only about 20 minutes from home. They meet once a month and I'll be going again this week.
I didn't have a knitting "group" to get together with...and now I do:happydance:
If you're on the North side of Fort Worth, it meets at the Knitting Nook on Watauga Rd...look up their website; they also have a group on Ravelry.
Let me know if you join up...I'm Sgt Pam there, too.
