Knitting by my Lonesome
I am a lonely knitter. I really had a great time meeting new people in Santa Cruz through the good old craftiness and figured I could do the same in the Lone Star State. Alas, the schedule of a miserable grad student is far more flexible than that of a content corporate shill. I love my new job to pieces, but I get tired by the end of the day. When I get up and hit the road at 6AM, I don't have enough steam left to find and enjoy a 6pm knitting group. All of the ones I have found so far in Houston are on weeknights. Perhaps when I get more settled I could start my own weekend group, but for now, I knit alone. This current project is a blanket with a very simple lace pattern that I can chip away at for an hour or so a night.
