Sorry it took me so long to reply; I haven't been on lately. I'm down in Southwestern area of the county. I also belong to the knitting circle at the Grateful Thread in Pottsville ( the Saturday sessions). I've only been knitting about a year and a half and can't say I know a whole lot of knitters, though I've been trying to get some converts when I KIP and people ask me about it. I'd be more than happy to talk to you. I'll make sure to check back for a reply.
