To all my fellow knitters,
Just a simple hello and question;
Where are all the Texas knitters? I don't see any threads for Tx and was wondering if anyone in particular near the Austin area?

Hi, Cheryl and welcome to KH.

There are a few Texas knitters that frequent this site (self included). In fact, the following thread includes lots of Texas knitters, but I'm doubtful whether many of them are active on this forum much anymore: http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=66065

I used to live close to Austin (well, in Austin, actually), but I've since moved out of that craziness and now I'm closer to Abilene.

Have you checked Ravelry to see if there are any knitting groups that meet in or around Austin? I'm sure there must be some, what with Austin being the artsy place that it is.

If you can't find any knitting buddies nearby, you can, of course, hang out online here. Not quite as good as in person, but it's still a very helpful, friendly site.

Hi Cheryl,

I'm a Texas knitter. I haven't been around much or for very long. I'm in the Houston area, near Katy Tx.

I started a Houston, TX Knitters (http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=52994&highlight=Houston+knitters) thread years ago, it's hard to keep up, it's such a huge city!

Yep, it's turned into a megalopolous. I'm about 20 miles west of Houston, but work in the city several days a week. Knitting is an evening thing for me and my salvation from my very high stress job.

I am in Abilene, TX and I wonder if there are any active knitting/crocheting groups here. I am also active in a local prayer shawl ministry.

I'm brand new on this forum. Even tho the last post here has been a few months back, I thought I'd add that I live about 60 miles north of Abilene, TX at Lake Stamford.

I have no idea if there are any active knitting /crocheting groups left meeting there. There used to be a group of ladies who met on certain Tuesdays of the month, but it escapes me now which week it was. I was invited, but never made it to any meetings due to work.

There is a specialty yarn store called Yarnies that did have knitting group meets, but I'm not sure what days or any details. I just stumbled on the place one day & they were having a sock knitting meeting.

Would love to hear from more Texans with a 'Roll Call' of sorts. :mrgreen:
