Also, there's a Yahoo group called Houston Knit Chicks. I am a member there, but I have never gone to any get-togethers. Or it's a good way to find out what's around town.

My Yahoo username is Ladyborglu, that's my name in the group

Cool! I had a major knitting breakthrough last night. I did my first swatch playing around with knitting and purling and I realized, "Hey this is actually not that hard!" I guess I had it in my head that it would take me months of practice to make something that looks half decent, so I am really relieved that I will be seeing positive results right away!

Alright! See, knitting isn't so hard!
Keep at it.

What do you have OTN? (On the needles?)

I just have a little swatch right now that I am experimenting with. This weekend I plan to start on a dishcloth. What kind of yarn is best for a dishcloth?

I'm new to dishcloths, but I believe it's the 100% cotton you can get at Walmart a pound cone for $6.

Also if you're into those, there is a group you can join:

That group sounds fun. And for $6 for a pound, that sounds like a great way to do homemade christmas presents!

Hey, all! I'm in Houston too, but oh dear, am I the only one inside the Loop? I go to Yarns2Ewe normally, but there is another yarn shop in town that I haven't seen listed on this topic. It's called Nimblefingers and it's out Memorial and Benignus (near Dairy Ashford). It's mostly needlepoint, but they have a small but really great yarn boutique in the back. Plus they're not as expensive as Yarns2Ewe! DH and I have friends in the Woodlands, Spring, Humble, and Katy, so we get out there a lot, but he'll never let me stop and check out the other yarn shops! I'm going to have to save some extra gas money and just make the trip out there on my own! :D Anyway, just wanted to check in as a fellow Houston knitter!

Hi! Looks like you may be the only one inside the loop... but I am not far... I work off Shepherd (San Felipe), and have been to Yarns2Ewe a couple of times -- it's convenient from my office... Just found a place closer to my home called Nancy's Knits (Braeswood and Chimney Rock)... and was pleased with the selection (not that I am any expert or anything), and the prices I saw (for brands I recognized) were comparable to on-line.... I can't stand I-10 right now with all the construction, one hasn't any idea what detour they will make you take! Or how long you will sit there!

A lady here in my building says there is a yarn store not far from here by the River Oaks Theater -- haven't checked though. Parking for that strip center is ridiculous!

Lisa

Hmmm... Braeswood and Chimney Rock isn't too far from my parents' house... I'll have to go check that out! I live off Shepherd and West Alabama (woot! Montrose!), so I'm right near the River Oaks theater and go down there a lot, but I haven't seen a yarn shop there yet. I'll have to go do some recon on my way home this week! =)

Hi! I haven't been around the forum much lately, but I just wanted to say that I'm in Montrose too!
