people to knit with!

Yesterday was the second Friday Knitting Night at Lanaiolo, and I just love this. It's so much quieter than Starbuck's, and cheaper, if you don't buy the yarn, which of course I will as soon as I reach a decision - so, probably not until next year. But, you know, it's not an English-speaking group, though some of the members can. German is the default setting, and I don't really trust my German, even though Actual Germans keep telling me I speak it perfectly (I wish these people would share their hallucinogens with me...), so I kept saying things in English. I felt like a total dork. Memo to self: get clue.

being still the happily solitary knitter I don't really know how I'd fare at a knitting group - but my knitting language is English, and my tongue gets all kinds of knots in it when I try to explain something apart from just plain stockinetee stitch to anyone in German, so I can kind of relate to your problem - but only in a very abstract way.
But meeting for a knit together (however you might call it, I guess) is mostly about the company, not the knitting per se, eh? :) Have fun!

Oh, your German's perfect. Don't worry about it. I mean, I kept switching back and forth between the two languages. I tend to speak more German there because there were new people (Tom & Ina) there and I didn't want to alienate them by speaking English.

I just abuse you for practicing my English, that's the only reason I speak English with you, not because your German is so bad. :D
