So how was the Yarn Harlot? Was it as good as you thought it would be? Did you learn anything new? I saw her on Knitty Gritty last week.

Hi. I have been lurking around for about a week and thought I would introduce myself. I'm Britney, a beginner knitter, and I live about 40 miles north of Houston. I have so far completed a scarf and am currently working on a 9x9 square for charity. Hopefully I will get that finished this week and start broadening my horizons and moving on from plain old garter stitch! I am desperate to see a real live person knit so if y'all know of any local knitting groups/ classes please let me know!

Britney

Hi TXMama! I guess the nearest store to you would be the nearest to me.....it's Twisted Yarns......just E. of I-45, on FM 2920. Go S. on 45 and L. on 2920. It's about a couple of miles down on the left. You can't miss it, just past the donut place.


I haven't actually been able to GO there to knit, but they are nice. I've been there a couple of times just to browse. And DH went in at Christmastime to ask if they sold yarn LOL!

So people actually go to Twisted Yarn to sit and knit? Hmmm... I went to Hancock Fabric in Conroe and got some cheapo needles and yarn on sale. Nothing too exciting there, but that's probably a good thing since I need to practice before I start messing up some expensive yarn! Thanks for the warm welcome ladies!

Hobby Lobby in Conroe has great yarn selection! And look out for their 50% off (last week they had I think) all their needles, etc. on sale. I often go there instead of the closer one in Woodlands (to me). Plus, Dollar Tree next door often carries novelty yarn, so don't forget to check them out!

If you are a member of a church you might think of starting a group there.........I bet there are many others in the same boat wondering where they can find other knitters with whom to get together.

I did buy some novelty yarn at Dollar Tree (for a non-knitting project) but wasn't sure if they had it on a regular basis. Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately I am not a member of a church... I have a friend who wants to learn also, so maybe that will lead to a knitting group, who knows!
