Ok . . . I'm sitting here in St. Louis, Missouri and I'm jealous! I read messages about groups getting together in SF and NY and I wonder how I might get something going here. There are a number of 'stitch 'n bitch' groups that meet in various parts of the city, but they're all women. I'd love to get a group going for men. I know there are men who knit here--I've seen them in yarn shops! If anyone has any ideas of how I might go about getting something started, I'd be grateful for your thoughts.
