jberry16- thank you so much for replying. I am so glad someone understands my situation I will do that immediately. I have been so anxious over this situation that I had trouble sleeping last night. Thanks again

Jennyloves2knit---I'm so sorry that happened. I hope that as he gets more into knitting and learning about the different fibers that he will come to understand what each is worth...monetarily as well as emotionally. But that he wants to learn at all.


VictoiseC---while I was at the Lorna's Laces site I just right clicked on the picture and then clicked on copy picture and then pasted it to my post. The yarn that I bought was 1200 yards. Enough for a pretty large shawl.

aprildavis99 UPDATE
What a difference a short amount of time makes! First, all the wonderful support made me be able to think instead of being anxious I went to Michaels and purchased him two beautiful skeins of yarn. I was amazed at how excited he was about having his own yarn.....he is realizing that knitting is an art Then, he completed his first knitted swatch with his new yarn We discussed, calmly, that WIPs could be ripped out by our cats and what would happen to the bamboo needles after the cats teeth marks. He completely understood. Further, after realizing I only have one pair of needles from size 7-11, he said we could go to our LYN and purchase my first set of circular needles I am so excited!

No, Jberry. It's crazy how things take off. It's just like real life. And on a Rio Rancho note...I hate that there are no good knitting books in Hastings. I haven't check Albuquerque yet, but ours is blah. Ugh!!
Jennyloves2knit---That's great. I'm so glad he is starting to get it. And now you'll be shopping for tons of stuff.....for 2 knit-a-holics!!!

But part of the challenge for myself is to read a number of books by authors I have never read, therefore forcing me to read other genres. I do this by picking an author for each letter of the alphabet. It sends me on a hunt through the library shelves. I'm about as addicted to those shelves as to the shelves of yarn at the shops. I've all kinds of different genres that way. Some I liked, some not so much.
I listen to lots of audio books while I knit also. Multi-tasking is great!!
One of my favorite new sites is goodreads.com It's neato browsing around and building up your own shelves, but it's even more fun when you get a few friends (or make a few friends) and see what they're reading, what they recommend, etc.

Check it out! It's given me a longer to-read list than I could get to before my eyes go bad!

Well I dont know about any in RR, but down the hill, borders and barns & noble both have some. I like borders more because they're cheaper and I think their staff is friendlier. What are you looking for? Lavendar Lamb has some.

I really want the Vogue Knitting: The Ultimate Sock Book. I checked it out at the library and loved it. So I want my very own to pet it and hug it and kiss it and love it and call it George!!!
I will check out B&N and Borders, and of course Lavender Lamb.
