Any beginning knitters in Dallas?
Hi,

Just curious if there are any beginning knitters in the Dallas area that might meet for coffee and knitting (or something along those lines.) I'm attempting to teach myself to knit...I should just take a class but I guess I like the punishment of trying to teach myself.

Thanks,

Kayakgirl

Yeah, a Dallas knitter!!!! I've been looking for a good knitting group, but havn't found one yet. I live in the Lewisville area near Vista Ridge Mall. Where are you? As there is usually a Starbucks around every corner I'm sure we could meet in the middle and knit! I've been knitting almost a year. I'm no pro, but we could learn from each other! PM me and we'll talk more!

I'm in Dallas and have been knitting for about a month. I've joined the yahoo email list for the Dallas Stitch n Bitch, but I haven't made it to a meeting yet. I'd be interested in a meetup. I live in Dallas, off Mockingbird.

We should plan a meetup sometime. . . PM me your email addresses (if you don't mind. . .) and we'll try to find a central location and time! I'm excited! Knitters!!!!

Dovey, have you been to the yarn shop there in Keller? I don't live in the Dallas area, but I do have relatives living in Keller, and saw on the yarn shop map that there is a yarn store there. I was wondering if it's a good one?

Well, phooey. Now I'm really embarrassed. I'm quite certain I did read somewhere online once that Keller had a yarn shop, but I just did a search, and looked at the map muse of yarn shops throughout the US, and couldn't find one listed for there.

Sorry to get your hopes up for nothing.
