Field Report from Cocoa Beach

If you are a yarn junkie and need a fix, you need to get to ALL STRUNG OUT in Cocoa Beach immediately! (Beaders will also find a lot to get worked up about!) The owners are super nice and the selection is drool-worthy. I have not seen that much Colinette yarn in one place since my trip to Boston! Seriously, I don't think any store in FL has this much Colinette, and all of Colinette's pattern books in print! I scored some good deals on bamboo yarn from Southwest and beautiful ribbon yarn from Trendsetter. It was their 1 year anniversary sale! It's worth the trip if you are anywhere near Brevard County. A highly recommended trip. Thank god my mom lives close enough I can go up there again soon!

FL knitters, send some warmth to the Windy City!

Sometimes we FL knitters want to knit thick wooly warm things, but we really don't use such things for long, if at all. Well, maybe not you guys in the Panhandle. I think it's COLD up there! :) Anyway, if you have a hankering for making some warm snuggly things, I have two new places in Chicago that have come to my attention that need your knittin'. You can really make a difference! If any of y'all have been in Chicago in the winter time, you know how miserable it could be with no hat, no gloves, no scarf to keep out that bitter cold. I'm going to try to get them both some wooly hats before the end of the month.
