Hi Lisa!!

I've been knitting my little fingers off lately and I would love to get into a group to help me put together my first sweater!!n I knitted one for my almost 5 year old and it's just looking at me waiting to be put together and I'm actually afraid of it. I've never done it before and it's scaring my to death.

That would be "Twisted Yarns". It's just off of I45 and FM 2920 (on the east side of I45). It'sjust as you head into the Old Town Spring area to the left. Nice shop; but I have never gotten involved in any groups there.

I work during the day, so I only get to do "group" type activities either at night or on the weekends.

There's also the Knit At Night Guild - which does happen to have a northside meeting/chapter.

Hey all. Nice to finally see some Houston knitters here! We should definitely organize a N. Houston meet sometime, either near Twisted Yarn or Meribee I guess.

Twisted Yarns is a nice atmosphere, but I haven't been to many so I can't really say.

Hey Houston Knitters!

I'll be moving to Houston around May 30 - and it would be awesome to have a meet up! I've already met Lu, so I'm looking forward to meeting the rest of my new knitter friends!

Hey, I just noticed this thread! It looks like most of you are in North Houston, but if anyone wants to come to central Houston there's a SnB that meets every Thursday night at 7:00 at Cafe Express on West Gray. I'm there nearly every week!

There are also some other group locations you can check out here:

Mer! I was hoping you'd see this!

I'm more southeast, but Central is closer to me than North. I'll have to check out that meeting.

I'm a member of the Yahoo group, but I keep forgetting to go look at the event listing! Well, that, and things have been really hectic.

Yay Houston!
I just noticed this thread, yay! It seems as though lots of you are from North Houston-ish, and I'm from Sugar Land. Yeah 'burbs! I'm wondering if anyone knows of any yarn shops (besides Michael's and Joann's and Hancock Fabrics, which is going out of business and all their yarn is 40% off!!) near that area.

I'm still at school in New Orleans until after graduation in May, so I can't get to anyplace in the Houston area until after that. I checked out Yarntopia online, and I'm planning a trip out there once I get home.

Hope to hear from some of you awesome Houston Knitters soon!
