I belong to Ravelry and know about Larks; however, because I take care of my grandchildren I am not able to attend the meetings.
I've been to Four Purls and it's really a nice shop; however, it is quite a ways to go. Being on a fixed income I am trying to conserve on gas and not driving any further than I have to.
Christinechrstms1 - if you do make it down this way this winter let me know. Maybe we can get together.
