Anybody else in the Colorado Springs area?

I'm new to this site. I learned to crochet years ago, but haven't in a long time. Started knitting a few years ago, but quit after maybe a year because of hand problems. Picked it up again last fall, and now seem to be addicted. Not looking for a cure. Mostly knitting socks, lately.

Hi, Thomas - I'm the Joe

Hi, Thomas - I'm the Joe mentioned by Q. I also encourage you to attend the retreat if you can. It's a great way to meet other men who knit and people from the Front Range. I hope you enjoy yourself here at MWK.

Hi Thomas. I'm not in

Hi Thomas. I'm not in Colorado Springs, but Arvada, in the Northwest part of Denver metro. We'll have to do a Front Range get together some time for all us Colorado boys. There are a few others on this board.

Meanwhile, the knitting retreat is a great suggestion. I went two years ago and had a blast; made some great friends.

Joe and I are up north here in Casper Wyoing and I know there are guys in the Denver area. Ravelry is a great way to hunt up guys in your neck of the woods. If you can are interested in the retreat and can make it there Joe and I would see you there. You can find more on that at:
