I have been here for 1 month and 9 days, I have unpacked, arranged, hung up pictures, learned how to get to quite a few stores, met new family members, seen family members I haven't seen in some time, had my Mamma here, enjoyed the snow, remembered why I loved living in Virginia, remembered why I think it's good to be living in Illinois, gotten lost, found my way, gotten sick for the first time in a loooong time and knitted....a lot. But one thing I have not done since moving here to Illinois is make new friends!!!
I made friends with family members but I haven't met anyone other than family since we have been here and I need to find friends. I have joined a meet up group for knitters and crafters and they meet up twice a week, Tuesday and Thursday nights. I am really excited to go to a meeting, I can't wait to meet some new people and new people who knit :o) That's one of the hardest things about moving to a new place...you have to make new friends! I am a very outgoing person, I can talk to anyone. I just have a hard time making new friends.
Do you have some suggestions for me on how to meet people and make new friends? Do you live in the area?? That would be great, to meet some bloggy friends that live close by :o)
