Hi Joan! Thanks for the friend request! Just curious - have you ever tried entrelac?

Dot's Shop in Granbury has been closed for quite some time now. She lost her lease and just decided to close and we miss it very much. Granbury knitters are still alive and well though. We just had a knitters retreat and had over 35 local women attend, and it was lots of fun to see new and old faces. I've heard the big yarn shop in Plano is the best. Havent't been there yet myself, but hear only good things.

I purchase my sock yarn from Knitpicks and JoAnns and Hobby Lobby. I think KP yarns are wonderful and very reasonably priced. I am only on my third pair of sox!! Do I have yarn?? Ohhhhhhh you betcha!!!!! I use the magic loop method. It was a bugger learning to cast on but now I have it. My friend showed me two sox on two needles to begin with.

If it's a mystery, I will likely read it. I don't particularly like dark stories...I try to keep it light and upbeat, even funny at times. Good luck in your retirement. Oh, I recently moved to Fort Worth, but I still spend a lot of time in Arlington because that's where I shop and see my physicians.

I only go to that shop if I am desperate. You must have caught her on a good day. I have a friend that just spent over $400 with her. A couple days later she went back to ask for help with a stitch problem with sox. She was told she could sign up for a class. I am surprised the woman is still in business.
I was fortunate that a quilting friend taught me how to knit sox. I am very new at it but am willing to help if I can.

Joan: Thanks for making me your friend. I was a writer, too. It was my last job before I retired. I did freelance work for the same magazine for a year after I quit, but I'm too busy now. We have a 5th wheel and love to travel with it. Happy knitting! --P

Hi! The very best store in my area is Hill Country Weavers on South Congress in Austin. I LOVE that store! It's kind of a trek from Round Rock, but soooo worth it. I see that you are getting ready to retire and travel...I'm so jealous. We're still working towards that time.
