I hope to see some of you there!

Hi everyone,
How wonderful to find this group!
I'm Jeanie - new to Vale (between Lincolnton and Hickory), formerly of Charlotte. I truly love this country-living but am longing to meet knitters and new friends out here in beautiful west Lincoln.
I've been knitting about 3 years now, can't sit down without needles in my hands.
Looking forward to chatting with you all.

I stopped by to say hello, then went home because of the storm. (My back right tire is almost bald, so I was afraid to try driving on ice with it.)

There were 4 knitters gathered, and they wanted me to stay, but they understood my situation.

It sure is cold, isn't it?

I've been looking for Strand of Purls- didn't know the name and thought I'd have to wait for the new Hickory yellow pages to come out. I'll stop by very soon and meet Laura. Thanks!
I go to Brandi's sit&knit at Wildskeins every Tuesday night. I look forward to it each week. Just a great relaxing evening- lots of laughter and chatter. Brandi is a treasure and quite the hostess.
Are you in Hickory?

Jeanie

Hi!
So you moved to the 'big city' of Lincolnton, huh? It's a very nice town.
My husband and I bought 20 acres and an old homestead last March and are thankful every single day to be away from Charlotte. I miss my knitting friends but am meeting new ones in Hickory.
Where are all the Lincolnton knitters hiding? I talked with the Co-op Extension people and the downtown librarians to locate a group but no luck. I'm glad to find you!
Jeanie

Sorry everyone - I replied to messages but didn't connect with the thread. Obviously, I have little talent for computers .....but I can knit!
