Starting Over

Hello Men!
Well, it been almost a year since I have posted here and many changes in my life. I recently moved from Arkansas to Longmont Colorado finding myself in a bit of culture shock leaving the isolation of the woods now in a huge apartment complex. I just finished my first scarf of the season; a simple seed sticth just to get back in the grove again and allow for meditation on my new situation. Its good to be here again!

Hi there. Hope this recent snowstorm isn't being too rough on you. I like your scarf - and the quilt you used for the background. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Welcome to CO and I hope you find it rewarding. Are you enjoying the snow today?

I too like the scarf (and that yarn!)...AND the quilt!

Hi Lars,
An oversight on my part, however, I do wish I had been that whitty. Looks like we will have warmer weather melting this beautiful blanket of snow this weekend. I plan to be outdoors as much as possible and hopefully stumble over some lucious yarn I will not be able to resist.

Don't know about Longmont, but Woollen Treasures in Loveland is a very good LYS. I've bought several items the couple of times I've been there and the staff is personable, friendly and most welcoming. (As is their store cat.) There's also a great new/used bookstore right up the street. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
