Thank you...actually, my husband LOVES that I've found knitting! We moved to Mt. Airy 3 1/2 years ago after never moving out of town before and our family is still in Dunn, so I get so homesick sometimes and knitting has helped me cope since there haven't been any local government jobs (my field) around here and now, we also have a 15 month old grandson who has stolen my heart. We will move back toward their direction in a few years, so I'm looking forward to taking my "habit" back "home"! We also drive down (almost 3 hours) every other weekend, so he really likes that I'm knitting rather than nagging about his driving!!
Sara, I have a good friend who is from Hickory and he's now the Town Manager in Blowing Rock...small world!
