I've found a knitting buddy! One of my classmates was wearing your basic first-knitting-project-garter-stitch-scarf. You know the type - purple acrylic, but obviously hand-knit.
We talked for a little bit, then the next class, she asked me a question about knitting in the round (she's figured out DPNs, but wants to know about knitting hats on circulars.) So I gave her my phone number and told her to call me. Hopefully, she will.
Very exciting. For me, anyway, especially since I have shyness issues that mean making friends is hard. And she says her friends are not in Boise, they're her high school friends, so this'll be good for both of us.
