I'm in northest ohio in Wooster, we have a small yarn-material store in town, but I found a wonderful one in Avon, Ohio. In a historic barn that was moed in. I'm still trying to learn how to purl stitch because I want to learn how to do socks and mittens. At least those are safe for now. I can crochet just about anything. Knitting that's another story. Have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
