So I have a serious question for all you knitters out there:
Monkey and I are getting ready to go to an Air Force playgroup for the first time. Do I bring knitting, which has the potential of helping me meet other knitters or possibly start up a conversation with someone who wants to learn, or do I go knit-free, because I really really really need to make some friends and my social anxiety disorder may just cause me to bury my nose in the yarn and never make a peep?

No reason you can't talk and knit at the same time (assuming Monkey lets you). The knitting may even help break the ice.

I've found knitting to really help with my shyness. If there's not to much to do or say, it's an excellent distraction, and kind of defuses anxiety. It's also a pretty good conversation starter.

I hope you had a good time! With some playgroups it can take a while to get to know people and feel comfortable.

Personally, I like to bring my knitting like a security blanket. It's there if I need it, and I don't always need to get it out, just having it is enough sometimes.
