Southwestern Ontario??
 
Anyone near Windsor? I'd love to start a group here!

Wow, weird coincidence! My first time checking out this part of the forum and sure enough, I am indeed from Windsor!


Hello! :hug:

hey!
 
Very cool! how long have you been knitting? I've been for about 3 years but really got hooked this year. I swear, I have dreams of yarn! my husband thinks I'm nuts. I guess he could be right when I say I want to figure out how to knit and drive! so much wasted time!

Krystal 11-06-2006 06:25 PM

haha, I have been knitting only since September (i think that's when I started) learned everything from Amy's videos and I am beyond hooked. I have dreams of knitting all the time, so many times I wake up half asleep doing the motions of knitting and then I search the bed for my yarn till my boyfriend tells me to go back to sleep.

If we are nuts, I really don't mind.

Hello!

Laura, I also live in London, Ontario. I learned to knit when I still lived in Vancouver, BC. I go to London Yarns in Hyde park for most of my yarn and I have also taken several classes there. Last week I attended a class on Blocking which was *excellent* and well worth the money!

Krystal and Furley - what are the yarn shops like in Windsor? I will be travelling through there in another month or so. Is there a a store well worth dropping in at?

Thanks!

Evelynne

Hi All,

Nice to see other Ontario knitters here! I live in Meaford Ontario, which is in between Collingwood and Owen Sound right on the Georgian Bay. I have been knitting for what seems like forever and love it!

We are lucky to have a great knitting store in our town, and a nice new one has opened up in Owen Sound as well. Well not so lucky for my budget!

Nice to meet you all!!

Patricia
