Can't help you out...I'm in St. Louis now. But I just wanted to say I used to live in Toledo up until almost 2 years ago. I went to UT and had quite a few friends from Dayton.

Good luck on finding some nearby knitters. I don't have any either..LOL.

Welcome. I live in Michigan :( If i lived closer i would like to knit with you :XX:

I go to my LYS alot. Most of them are willing to help, however, i don't see anyone hanging around knitting other than the owner and her employees.

Often wondered if they would mind if knitters would be welcome to hang out :XX:
