Hey there fellas
I've just moved (back) to Ann Arbor Michigan to go to school.
Anyone in Ann Arbor out there? Know any knitting fellows here?

Wouldn't you knit kilt stockings for this man? I surely would. maybe a matching hat as well.

When you buy yarn in skeins or on spools, do you ever wind into balls by hand?

I wouldn't deign to buying yarn in a skein or on a spool. Just call me "Swift Hank."

Where's your favorite place to knit?

I'd love to hear about your favorite place to knit. For me, there's nothing more better than sitting on our front porch swing knitting and listening to the world go by.
