Today at our knitting meeting at the library we had a mother and daughter come to learn to knit. While they were there and learning they mentioned that they were moving to Vermont from FL and were picking up cold weather stuff along the way. I said I knew someone who had some flannel sheets to get rid of. The mother said she also had a tortoise that she had to leave here. Another woman said she had a friend who had tortoises. She called her and low and behold she had given away her tortoises but she missed them so much she wanted to acquire the one available at the knitting group. So in addition to learning to knit with wooden needles that were donated this morning, they were able to farm out their tortoise and acquire flannel sheets. We've learned what movies to see and not see but you never know what is going to happen at a knitting meeting. Have you had unusual experiences at a knitting meeting?
We had one about three weeks ago when a man walked in asked if he could use the toilets then when he came out wanted to show an injury to his leg then he asked if he could get changed as an op shop had given him some clothes that were in a bag outside he came in to get changed and then we here police sirens going in all directions he took ages getting dressed then when quiet he came out then asked for money and food which we didn't give him and he left we still don't know if he was hiding from police or not but he did seem really shifty when he heard sirens
I think you Are the winner of unusual happenings. Good story.
I've never been to a knitting meeting. It sounds like fun...
We knit at each other's homes, so no excitement like mentioned above!
Today at our knitting meeting at the library we ha... (
Sounds like most meetups I know of. You never know what will happen.
I guess we have a quiet day of knitting. We meet at our church. It is a wonderful time to knit and crochet with friends.

Always. One never knows what topic might come up.
I'm still chuckling over the man changing clothes and quietly leaving. Following which, a group of women with their knitting were marched off to jail for "aiding and abetting a criminal"!! I, also, think y'all were very, very kind.
We meet at our local library. It’s a 2 hour meeting and anything goes. We knit, crochet, quilt, embroidery, counted cross stitch and more. We share supplies, knowledge and so much more. I’ve made some wonderful friends I wouldn’t have otherwise. It’s definitely a highlight in my week.
Our Nifty Needles group meets weekly at a local church. I look forward to seeing this amazing collection of talented ladies. We knit, crocbet, quilt, and a variety of other things. We share our lives as we talk about everything under the sun! Best of all, we help and encourage each other.
