See pirates, it IS a knitting club!
If you search on Ravelry you'll probably find one reasonably locally, Wilkie, they are really back in fashion again.
TP, I'll go and look for you
There's one shop in town that sells nice wool, the local market sells bazaar type wools, and the co-op seems to be reducing what they stock. I make my hubby drive me 25 miles to a market town which has a wool shop and a quilt shop on the same street...heaven!
Beebs, I looked at your LYS website...it's lovely.
Wilkie, how dare they!! You'll have to be Wilkieie

Beebs- I still have my needlepoint frames stacked up in the living room, but I don't do it as often as I used to.Whatever happened to your Captain Jack pattern?
In the unfinished pile moomoo along with a few others
Its 4 weeks until Charlotte's birthday, perhaps I should get him out and finish him, only 5 years after I started
Can I join this thread. I don't knit that often, but I do a lot of cross-stitch
And I am looking for someone with a knitting machine who may be able to knock me up a scarf. Any takers? Pleeeeeeease.
Can't help you there Schmunkee, I'm strictly a needles knitter.
I've done a few cross-stitch and a couple of tapetries but I'm not at all talented at either.
Not got a knitting machine either, sorry.
My walls are full of cross stitches, and lots of people have had cross stitched cards from me in the past. The threads are stacked in boxes in a big cupboard in my lounge. Just don't ask where all my quilting supplies are.
Kwilts, this place that you go to for quilting supplies and wool, it wouldn't happen to be close to Dartmoor would it?
I was sorry to hear you didn't get your granny's knitting things mouse.
My nan died last year and my mum collected up all her knitting stuff and gave it to me. There wasn't much, just odds and ends of wool and some squares she had knitted. I've sewn them all together to make a blanket for our cat. There were a couple of nice pattern books too. One was from the 60's and I like to think that possibly she'd knitted me something from it when I was a baby.
I'm not knitting anything at the moment but I can feel the lure of the wool now....
That's lovely small. I inherited my grandma's knitting needles, and she also had her sister's in her bag. Sadly I've ditched most of them now and a lot weren't useable. My auntie gave me a huge pile of baby patterns with all the names in of the people she'd knitted them for, including mine and my cousins.
The market town is indeed on the edge of Dartmoor, with a nice selection of coffee shops as well. I'm turning into a yarn snob as they've got lots of hand dyed and hand spun stuff there <drool>
Is it Serendipity and Spin a Yarn, Kwilts?
This is a pirate...
Sometimes seen on these...
Lol, no I'm in BT!
My Nan knitted all the clothes for my Tiny Tears so I never got rid of her. She's still in the loft with all her lovely outfits, including hats, gloves and bootees.
