Thank you - it IS stunning!
The New Paths Shawl on Ravelry is not a free pattern. I can't find this under any other searches. Would you please share how to get the free pattern? Thank you - it's lovely!
Also look on sweaterbabecom - on the left side of the screen, scroll down and there is a linnk to locate yarn stores. Churchmouse on Bainbridge is fabulous, especially if $$ is no object!
Several stores in Seattle that are well worth the walking.
I have TWO hardcover copies of the second book in the series, KNIT TWO. I am happy to part with them. Please PM me if you are interested (US only, please). I'm sure we can work something out . . .
Perhaps because 45 was in Florida golfing on Sunday?? I've never been.
As my Dad, at best an agnostic, would say, "Duly noted."
Thinking good thoughts for your continued improvement. May I assume that this weather is not helping you at all?
Overhead. Buildings cost money, whether you own or rent. Utilities cost money. Most advertising costs money. Some yarn suppliers require VERY large minimum orders - which means more cost for the LYS before that yarn is sold. I'm sure anyone who owns a LYS can add to my list . . .
Thank you - made me and the spousal unit laugh out loud . . .
I'm pretty sure I've lived in places that had one of those linoleum patterns in the kitchen . . . the red brick-y sort of pattern.
I've heard, although I have no personal frame of reference, that a group called "Reach for Recovery" might be just what you are looking for. Check with your local Cancer society, your physician, etc. Best of luck to you.
Gotta love 'em, because if you leave them by the side of the road, they find their way home again . . .
I had to check this post out - "seriously . . .funny" is such a classic oxymoron, I had to see what was going on! Thank you for a morning smile.
In addition to all the other suggestions - check with your local churches. Also, I started "my" knitting group by putting up flyers around town; we meet at a local restaurant once a week (and yes, I did check with the restaurant first), and I knit by myself for a year before anybody else started coming. It was fine with me; I enjoyed the quiet time - your mileage may vary. We are now up to around 7, if everyone shows up. A nice size group.
join Ravelry.com - free - and do a search of their afghan patterns, checking appropriate "construction" options and "free" You should be able to come up with several options. Enjoy!
