I'll be visiting a friend, arriving Wednesday the 7th. My friend has to work the weekend. Anybody want to get together for coffee and knitting? I PM'd a few people in specific towns in the area -- trying to figure out all the people from Texas who live near Gatesville was more than I'm up to today - since I haven't even started packing yet! Please PM me if you're interested and let's see what we can work out.
I looked up Gatesville on a map and it is definitely not what I'd call South Central texas. It is northwest of Temple and due north of Ft. Hood. I recommend you check the User List for KPers in the Temple/Waco area. Maybe even as far north as Ft. Worth. I hope you find someone available.
I suggest you PM the following:
Maretta - in Temple
Chlonestartx - in Waco
Kaitlin Blackrose - in Waco
SIML - in Waco
prsivils - in Waco
Hope this helps,
