@rallisaurus Maybe you could join one of the ravelry groups for your area. A quick search turns up at least 2:
Silver Spring Knitters
and Silver Spring/Kensington wooley Crafters though the latter group seems to be 50+, maybe not what you're looking for? But the former gets together every Tuesday night! Good luck!

Last week, I emailed my boyfriend the link to the latest Interview with a Virgin. Last night, he showed up at my house with all the fixin's for a steak and blue cheese feast. Much laughter was had by all!

On Songs About Musical Genres That Are Not Done in the Style of Said Musical Genre

Peter, Paul and Mary's "I Dig Rock & Roll Music" used to drive me crazy for exactly this reason! It probably still would, but I refuse to listen to it.

On Why Buying From Emerging Fashion Designers Costs More Money (and Why That's Okay)

Have you guys ever checked out this Hourly Rate Calculator? (Maybe I first learned of it at the Hairpin? I forget) It's designed to help freelancers determine what hourly rate they should charge in order to make their desired profit, and factors in all kinds of stuff (health insurance, yearly travel, website maintenance, rent). I think you could apply it to this discussion pretty easily, and I wonder if designers use a similar calculator when deciding how much to charge for their wares.

Sriracha-Peach Crisp

I had some for breakfast this morning, too, it's just as yummy after a night in the fridge.

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher I just bought my first batch of peaches yesterday, they were so good! I made a sriracha-peach crisp with them and it was delicious.

On Big Movie

@Smallison I stayed through the end, the schwarma bit was great. No one says a thing, they're just killing the food while looking completely exhausted.
