Anyone from Philadelphia PA?
I don't think any knitters from this forum live around me

We could learn a lot from crayons:some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors....
but they all exist very nicely in the same box.

Formerly Philly
I was born and raised in the suburbs of Philly (Delaware County), spent many happy summers with my godfather in Olney and lived for a couple of years in Overbrook. I now live in Northern Ireland, but at heart I'll always be a Philadelphia girl.

I live in Glenside, about 15 miles NW of Philly. I work in Center City and sometimes I shop at Rosie's Yarn Cellar and I love A Tangled Web in German Town.

Hi!
I work in Philadelphia and live in South Jersey. I've been to Rosie's a few times but there are also about 4 great yearn stores right accross the Ben Franklin in Jersey. I also take a really good class at a local High School. I've only been knitting for about four months but I love it and have completed about 5 projects already. I also sew, quilt, rubber stamp and scrapbook; I'm a bit of a craft whore !!

Hilltown, PA--transplanted from Lawndale!
Hi There!

I'm a transplant to northern Bucks County but grew up in Lawndale. Hilltown is north of Chalfont. It's beautiful out here, but I miss the convenience of living in Northeast Philly. My daughter lives in Wissinoming and my other daughter just moved from Port Richmond to Langhorne.

I love to knit, crochet, and quilt. Lately our family has had a run on new babies and I've been busy making baby blankets. Right now I'm getting ready to make a sweater for my grandson who is 3 1/2. I just bought a Krafty Knitter Loom Kit and I've been playing around with it. Michael's has them on sale for $10 so I thought...why not! It reminds me of those pot holder looms we all had when we were kids but it seems to do a whole lot more...

Well, guess I better get busy knitting. Hope to "talk" to you all again soon!

Hi,

I'm near Philly. I live in Southern New Jersey (raised and married here). I was born in West Philly.

I'm a crocheter and beginner knitter. I run my own crocheting and knitting group that meets twice a month. I'm also a scrapbooker and run my own scrapbooking group.
