UWS Knitters-Happy 7th Birthday!

The UWS Knitters group (translation Upper West Side Knitters for those of you from outside of Manhattan) celebrated their 7th Birthday at their regular meeting this week. For our birthday, our list mom, Judi brings a birthday cake.

We meet in the Starbucks on West 86th Street and Columbus Avenue from 6.00 pm to 8.00 pm every Wednesday. The staff at this Starbucks is very friendly to our group. The manager even arranged for us to meet at another local Starbucks when this location was closed for renovation! We’re a very open group and welcome new knitters and visitors. Our oldest member is 91 years old (although she wasn’t with us for this party.)

For those of you who may not have met her, Mary is the author of the Snit n’ Knit blog.  She’s always knitting a shawl of pair of socks. She’s also on Ravelry as Mc Mary so check out her work!

The Upper West Side Knitters are even crocheter-friendly. (Of course, we live in hope that we will be able to convert our hooking friends to a pair of straight needles.)

We’ve been joined by out-of-towners from Holland, Germany and England! If you’re going to be in New York City on a Wednesday evening, bring your knitting and join us! You can join us online by registering with our Upper West Side Knitters Yahoo Group.

I hope that some of the UWS Knitters will add their comments and words of cheer!

  4. Several years ago I was babysitting my grandchildren and my daughter suggested I sit in on one of your sessions, which I did. I had a good time. I am Judi’s Mom!

  5. Elizabeth who is dsplaying her progress on her lace scarf emailed me that she tried leaving a comment but was having technical difficulties. She sends her best wishes as well! I think that it’s fantastic that Elizabeth’s trying her hand at lace.
