No kidding! I LOVE to knit, and I make lovely "Texas appropriate" sweaters and other stuff, too!

There's a knitting group in Sugar Land, but I don't get to it often. It's on Sunday afternoons, which I like to keep for family time and on Thursday afternoons when I'm usually working. Oh well.

Question
Since I'm new to the N Houston area, I learned about the guild meeting Thursday night in Spring and am thinking of going. Anyone else going? Are there any other groups meeting this week? If so are new people welcome?

Shirley

Hi Shirley -

I'm new to the Houston area as well and I have already mets lots of great knitters. I joined the guild and our meetings are the last Thursday of the month. Besides that, I usually try to go and knit at the shop called Twisted Yarns on Fridays. I'm the "newbie" but they welcomed me in and I would love it if you could join us! There are also several lace groups that meet on the 1st, 3rd, and 4th Saturdays. I will probably join them eventually, but for not so do the knitting on Fridays at Twisted Yarns and the Guild meetings. We could always get together and start our own thing. I was actually thinking of going over to Barnes and Noble tomorrow afternoon to sit and knit for awhile. You are welcome to come! I'll be at the one by the Woodlands Mall, knitting by the cafe thingy, probably around 2 pm.

So to answer your question, newbies are always welcome! PM me if you want more info, I feel like I've been rambling enough!

I usually go on Fridays around 1 or 1:30pm. It's nothing formal, so you can come and go as you please. You can bring your mom to B&N, too! I guess I'll just have to knit alone. . .

Thanks, JJ. I'm slow in responding, obviously didn't make it to the Woodlands B&N. That's a pretty long haul for me! Would love to meet you Friday at Twisted Yarns if you'll be there ... I think you said in another message you're there between 1 and 1:30, correct? Let me know!

Hey Shirley - I would love to knit with you at Twisted Yarns on Friday! I have a dr's appt that day so I will a little late, probably around 1:30 and 2:00 pm. I have shortish, reddish/brown hair, and will probably be wearing a jean skirt and flip-flops (because that's what I always wear!) and my knitting bag is pink with flip-flops on it. Hope to see you there!

I just started The Yarn Harlot last night and I couldn't put it down for almost 50 pages........I was snickering in bed with my nightlight. DH kept asking me what I was snickering about (while he was trying to fall asleep)........then stated "only silent books allowed in bed".
I then tried to disguise my laughs as coughs.

The tale of the green afghan had me.........in stitches.........as did the weddings sweaters......

I wish I could go see her on 9/18! Y'all let me know how it went ok???????????????
