I am new to this forum. I live near Denton about to move to Decatur. Kinda new to knitting. Trying to knit everything so I can be a better knitter!!! I have been using this site for the videos and such and decided to join so I posted all my questions today that I have been saving up. I don't know anyone who knits.

Hi there!

I live about 15 miles east of Denton. I've been knitting for about three years. Everyone here is very helpful.

Happy Knitting!

If any of you are ever near Celina (north of Frisco), you must visit Delightful Hands. It is a very cute yarn/scrapbooking shop in downtown Celina. The owner is so helpful, you will feel at home right away.

I'm almost as far North Texas as you can get except for the Panhandle. I'm in Wichita Falls, and I am in total agreement with the people from around Abiline. I would give my first born child for a LYS here. I have to use the internet almost exclusively. Chain stores just don't quite cut it. I will be in Lewisville in two weeks for my brother's wedding how far away is that from the yarn shops that have been mentioned? I love this site, it's wonderful to "talk" to other knitters.

The only one I can think of that's close to Lewisville is the Woolie Ewe in Plano. It would be well worth the extra time to go there.

Hi, all. I'm in Fort Worth. A lot of new N. Texas knitters out there! Definitely try to make the trip to the Woolie Ewe when you're in Lewisville -- it's not far. It's well worth the effort! Another good shop in the north Dallas area is Yarn & Stitches at Coit & Arapaho.
In the Fort Worth area I like Jennings Street Yarns, The Knitting Nook in N. Richland Hills, and Simpatico in Bedford.

I'm not a fan of the Woolie Ewe. It's a bit far from Lewisville, but the Shabby Sheep in Dallas is lovely. Oh, and Delightful Hands in downtown Celina is wonderful, as well. Celina is about 10 miles north of Frisco off of Preston Rd. And, Sherry ,the owner, has Malabrigo!

I feel for you. I was in WF in 1980, then from 1984 through 1994. The place definitely felt small even though it's spread out.
