I actually got my knitting stuff at Walmart, lol. In Scottsbluff NE though. The Micheal's I know of is in Greeley CO. Do you know of one closer to the Platte County area?

I'm just kinda cheerfully amazed there's another person in Wyoming on here.

I love my needles from knitpicks. You can order a set of tips and a set of cables for about $9 and then if you need more tips, you can order those separately for $4 to $7.
You could build your collection slowly and they're interchangeable so you won't have to buy duplicate needle sizes to get different cable sizes.

I've never been to Wyoming and after reading that there isn't a walmart or michael's near by, I'm thinking it sounds like another planet! LOL! (actually--sounds like a place I"d love--just not one I'm used to!)

Are there every flea markets, yard sales or swap meet type get togethers out there? You might browse around there--I hear of a lot of people finding needles for next to nothing at places like that.

We have 2 walmarts where I live, and Hobby Lobby and Hancock Fabrics. And a LYS, but I'm in one of the 2 largest cities. Platte County huh? At least you're next to the Interstate. Cheyenne has a couple yarn stores, one walmart and a Hobby Lobby.
