Hi Mer!

Kate, If you decide to check out the one by ROT... she says it's in that alley way between the theatre, and maybe Starbucks (?)... trying to remember, and it may be more towards the back -- ?? Good luck...

And the Nancy Knits... she doesn't have a sign out -- says she's having trouble with City... But, it's the same center as Belden's and she is a couple of doors to the left of Walgreens. I barely found it.

I'm from Houston (Memorial area), but I'm currently living in North Texas. My in-laws live in Sugarland, though. Anyway, I've been to Yarns2Ewe and Mary Charles Yarn on Sunset. Now, where is the one in River Oaks? On West Gray? And Chimney and Braeswood... is that considered Bellaire? People look at me crazy when I say this, but I miss Houston!

I love Houston!

Chimney Rock/Braeswood, to me -- is the Meyerland area (?)... Between Westbury and Bellaire... everything is right next to each other.... Maybe it's considered Westbury?

River Oaks: Yeah, West Gray, right at Shepherd.

Mary Charles: Sunset and what? I go home through that area sometimes...

Yeah, I guess that would be Meyerland.

Mary Charles is on Sunset almost to the museums. There is a group of shops altogether. It's right next door to the furniture/home decor store Surroundings. Very cute, but kinda pricey.

I tried to go to Mary Charles over the summer, but she was on "summer hours" and was closed. I looked in the door, though, and it looks like she had some really nice stuff! She's on the second floor of one of those little converted houses on Sunset between Mandell and Ashby, on the right side if you're heading west from Mandell.

Here's a link to her website:

I'm SO going to go hunt down the one by the ROT this week. I think I might know where it it... like on the back side of the center where Hunan River is, maybe? Anyway, I'm going to wander the dark and dangerous streets of River Oaks (ha!) until I find it!

And then on to Nancy's Knits, which I think I have heard about, but thought was closed. Someone said they couldn't find it--must be the sign thing.

I had no idea there was a yarn shop in River Oaks! I'm close to there, so I'll have to try to find it. Mary Charles is ok but I wouldn't go there for anything other than yarn--the last time I was there she had a selection of about 4 needle sizes and only a couple other accessories!

I'm definitely going to try to find the River Oaks yarn shop next time I'm in town. Somewhere around Starbucks? Near Backdoor Sushi?
Oh well, I'll find it. Now, Nancy Knits, is this the one in Meyerland?

I will be curious to hear what y'all find out about the one in RO.

I told my son and husband about the Nancy Knits (yes, Meyerland), and now they want to go with me and pick out their OWN yarn for me to make them hats!! This may wind up being an expensive discovery!!

Son keeps talking about cashmere-blanket-something!! Not seeing it in his future....
