Hooray for Pandemonium finally getting play space. I know that was a real crimp in their style for a loong time, and cost them some business (to Danger Planet in Waltham, which had ample play space).
The yarn store in Porter Square, which is on the other side of the parking lot from the supermarket - that little side street behind the CVS - has knitting groups, spinning groups, and offers classes. However, last I checked they charge for their 'social' knitting groups.
Circles in JP is near the Green St. T station, and they have a weekly knit-in. You have to show up early though, as that back room gets cramped quickly.
I was wondering - is there an interest in a monthly tea and knitting group? I've been trying to organize a tea aficionado's group, and if we could get some knitters who love tea to come along, that would rock.
There are tea places in the Norwood/Attleboro area (Teas and Trinkets is still open, yes??), and also a new one in Salem, MA that I just heard about... if folks didn't want to do the whole city thing (although I've heard nice things about the tea room at the Boston Public Library).
My in-laws live in the Foxboro area so if any of you "South Shore" knitters could swing something that way this winter, I'd be onboard for that!
