Wow...sure wish I had known that 10 years ago...I could have made it through those Organic Chem lectures a little easier.

Tallahassee actually gets COLD in the fall and winter, so you can actually use some wool!

Jacksonville area here.
The funny thing is I'm from central New York and I had never knit, but now that I live here where it's hot, hot, hot most of the year I've gone and turned addict.

Welcome to KH!

Another Floridian-knitter here!

I'm in Central Florida, about an hour from Orlando. I'm a beginner, and just finished my first project ever: a scarf for my Panda Bear!

I'm currently working on another scarf (but this one's for me!), and a square for Warm Up America. Also, I just taught myself to fingerknit and knit up a rope scarf in less than an hour! Aahhhhh...knitting is getting so addicting! :D

Nice to meet everyone!

Welcome feminine_earth!

My sister lives in Orlando, and I went to a great knitting group meeting there a few months ago.

Congrats on your first project and your first post out here!

Hi there! Have you checked out A Stitcher's Haven down near the Broward Mall?

Also, I see in your sig line that you're doing Caps to the Capital. Check out our KAL on here to be added to the counter for KH'ers who are knitting for this great cause (if you haven't already).
