I live and work in Sunnyvale. anyone around here?

Purlescence (http://www.purlescenceyarns.com) just opened here in Sunnyvale. check it out if you haven't already.

*edit: not affiliated with the store, just excited and happy that I have a decent one so close by now.

I live in SSF - don't know why my profile says "junior member" - I must have messed up when I registered! I'm definitely NOT junior - turned 50 this year -

I usually get my yarn at JoAnn's or Michael's - I'm a beginning knitter, and most of the stuff I make needs to be machine wash & dry (hats, prayer shawls, etc.). There is a nice yarn store here in SSF - Cottage Yarns - but the really nice stuff is $$$, and I don't have a lot to spend.

Am also into doing a little felting - have made a few bowls, slippers, and (believe it or not) pirate hats! Yup - pirate hats. I'm also working with felted wool sweaters - cutting them up to make tote bags, etc.

:waving: hi Roberta! :waving: I think the word "Junior" refers to the amount of posts you have in these forums. your felted sweaters made into bags sound pretty cool! I'd :heart: to see pics! I've heard of Cottage Yarns, I think they go to Stitches West.
