Hi Nascardudette! (love your name!!!) Welcome to the foum!
I just moved to the Houston area in The Woodlands. I joined the knitting guild (KNOT - Knitters North of Town). Everyone is really nice and welcomed me with open arms. Check out our link of all the Houston people here.
My LYS, Twisted Yarns in Old Town Spring, give you $1 off for any baby hats that you bring in. I think some other stores may do the same thing, but I'm not sure exactly what.
Nice to meet you!
