Anyone in Indy?

I’m in Indianapolis, and I would love to meet some knitters around here to hang out with from time to time. The only knitters I know are easily 40 years my senior (not that there’s anything wrong with that). They don’t frequent many coffee shops, so it’s hard to get a group together for an occasional knit-in.


I may be moving back to Indy in a couple of months (I’m interviewing next week). Knitting in coffee shops sounds fun! What area of Indy are you in? If I do move back, I’m looking at the westside - Brownsburg, Zionsville, maybe Plainfield.

If you moved to those areas it would be very convenient for us to get together! I live on the west side of Indy by Eagle Creek. I grew up in Brownsburg.

Let me know how the interview goes! I’m itching to have a knitting friend close to home. :happydance:

I’m trying to get started with knitting. I live in Brownsburg and saw a yarn shop in Clermont that got me interested…

I’ve been to that little yarn shop in Clermont. They aren’t open very late, so I usually go to Mass Ave. Knit Shop, which incidentally isn’t on Mass Ave. It’s on Virginia. I’d recommend checking it out. The owner is great!

Hi there! I also live in Brownsburg and am looking for new friends to knit with! I have lived in Indy for about a year and haven’t found a group to knit with.

Right now I am in a knitting slump and could use some inspiration. I was knitting winter hats, but as the snow is melting I think I am done until the fall. I have been working on the baby bolero from One Skein, and am at the finishing stages but I don’t like finishing. I need some help with my Kitchner stitch… it is looking like poo.

I would LOVE to get a knitting group together! If anyone is interested, let me know, and we can work on something.

I am totally up for a knitting group. I am pretty flexible on weeknights as my husband is going for his MBA and needs his study time! Let me know what you are thinking…

If I end up moving back, I’d be up for getting a group together. I’ll keep you posted. Interview’s on Monday! :help:

FYI… there is a knitting group that meets at the Bburg library every first wednesday of the month from 630 to 8. I have never been able to make it… something always seems to come up. I intend on going sometime soon.

Vendie… hope you had a good interview!

I think the interviews went well, just need to work on timing now. Nothing’s set though, so I still don’t know if I’ll be moving back to Indy :help:

I DID make a quick trip to Mass Ave while I was there. Wow! They’ve been moving stuff around! I’m glad they moved the Malabrigo to a more visible location. And I’m even more glad that they’ve been expanding their selection of sock yarn. Very important factor in any decision to move back :teehee:

I’m glad the interviews went well, Vendie! Keep us posted. :cheering:

I am sending you happy thoughts about the interviews!

So, I am ready to start knitting… something anything. My dry spell is up and I am going to start on some washcloths. They are always a quick knit and always gets me ready for something bigger.

Although it is hard to knit when it is 80 and perfect out.

Does anyone want to plan a meeting/knit together?

I’d love to get something set up! If anyone else would like to be involved, please PM me with days that work for you, and I’ll see if I can figure something out.


My brother lives in Carmel and we visit on occasion. When we do, I’ll be glad to see the suggested yarn stores.

If anyone is up the interstate NW of Fort Wayne or SE of Elkhart/Goshen, give me a jingle.

I’m moving back to Indy :happydance:

Congrats on the new job! When is your ETA?

On a knitting note… I just finished a baby bolero from One skein. I did it with the Blue sky alpacas organic cotton and have decided I love BSA! :slight_smile:

Sometime in May is what we’re shooting for. It all, obviously, depends on how quickly we find a place to live :teehee:

Congrats on the job. Hope you find a place.

Here is an event in Western Indiana that everyone might be interested in. It is a fiber fair at the Putnam County fairgrounds on Friday April 13th from 1-7 and Saturday April 14th from 9-5.

Here is the website if you want to know more. This will be my first time going and I even live in Putnam Co.

Happy Knitting Every One!!!
