I'll plan on being there, JJ. I'm short with brown, going gray hair! And I'll probably be wearing a jeans skirt, too!
I have a "Knitting for Peace" bag that I won as a door prize in Green Bay ..... Look forward to meeting you and looking for more yarn (can't seem to go into a yarn store without buying something...)

Aww, Shirley, that stocking is soooo cute! I'm glad you came to knit with us, I was so happy to meet you!! Another new person to Houston, just like me! I'm glad I'm not the only one!

I'll be there again this Friday if you're coming, or if you want to get together another time, I'm up for it!

I'm planning to be there again this Friday...around 1-ish. Finished the washcloth and the little dress I was making...will bring them for you to see. Have you started the sweater yet? Loved the yarn you picked out. Off to a doctor's appointment now....see you in a few days.

Hi, JJ!!! Haven't been at Twisted Yarns for a couple of weeks. On the 17th my car was in the shop ... window wouldn't roll up and of course we were having massive amounts of rain. Duct tape and plastic kept the car from being saturated before I was able to get it in to be fixed. Last week I was out of town visiting my parents in Florida. I thought I was planning my trip around the Guild meeting. LOL! I had my weeks mixed up. Won't get to go next month either as I'll be in Boston visiting my new granddaughter. And I doubt I'll get over to Twisted Yarns this Friday.

Saw your new blog. VERY GOOD!! And the flamingo turned out beautifully. Now you need to make another one so it has a companion. What are you working on now?

I picked up some Rowan Denim at a yarn shop in Florida to make a shell. (Denim is really cool. It's made from real denim fibers and fades and softens just the way jeans do.) I've also got a couple of cross stitch things going right now.

Let me know what's going on with you!

I might be at the Yarn Harlot, but I'm not entirely sure yet. I hope I can make it!
