Hi there. I'm in Newark. My neighbor is from Zanesville. I'm trying to convince her to knit, but she's a little scared of it.

We have a nice knit shop nearby in Granville, but nothing here in Newark. Does Zanesville have shops with good supplies?

as far as specialty shops, no...it's Walmart and JoAnn's if I want anything. Which kinda sucks because JoAnn's doesn't really have all that much --although last night I was able to find a nice Susan Bates stitch gauge/needle identifier there. they might be getting better with their selection of supplies, because it looked like they were doing a makeover of the needlearts section...keep my fingers crossed!!
I had toyed with the idea of starting my own Stitch and Bitch group here in Zville, it's just hard finding others that would want to join and then getting with them about times/places..etc. It's still a possibility...so glad you came back in to respond to me, I was thinking when I saw the date of your last post that you'd given up finding someone from this part of Ohio...lol

I'm rarely in Coshocton, but if I thought there'd be a good source of knitting stuff, I'd be willing to give it a try...

I'm not from Ohio, but I did go to undergrad in Cleveland. While I was there I used to babysit for a family, and the mom was originally from Zanesville! Also, I just HAD to post because I LOVE your avatar, miles!!

Sunflowers are quite the obsession of mine as well...I've loved them as long as I can remember. My mother-in-law loves it...she says it makes me easy to buy for (anything sunflower related!!)

Before we were married, at my husband's first apartment in the city, there was a small backyard, so we were growing some sunflowers. They were about 3 feet tall, but hadn't bloomed yet, when the MORON LANDSCAPERS picked them out because they thought they were weeds. I was devastated.

They're definitely nice to look at in this subzero weather.
