Same question; Two COASTS

I'm going to be living in La Jolla / San Diego for most of the winter -
and then will be living in New York for most 2012.

Am interested in finding knitting groups - and your favourite yarn and supply stores on both coasts:

SoCAL and NoHo

Let me know where you go to sit and knit; where you go to sit and knit and meet and yack; and where you are; and where you love to snoop and shop!

Survey on Ravelry

I just found a survey about "Gender and Knitting" over at the "Needlework News and Events" forum on Ravelry. It's only aimed at American Ravelry users and the person conducting the research would really like input from men. I found it pretty easy to take and got it finished in less time than estimated by the surveyers. If you have a Ravelry account, I urge you to go over and complete it.

Square Shawl

While in Mexico, I made a shawl for my niece and just now blocked it when I returned to Canada. I used Marianne Kinzel's pattern - "English Crystal", 350 gm of Shetland wool from Jamieson and Smith in Scotland, and 4.5 mm needles. I knitted on a sideways border of 8 stitches (knit 4, yo, k2tog - every row). I blocked it out on a king size bed to about 66 inches square and scalloped the edges.

The Coytown Panda

I live in the most interesting neighborhood of Orlando. Coytown, just north of downtown is a vibrant, young, energetic, and artistic few blocks of old concrete ranch style homes from the 70's. But, the coolest thing about Coytown is its Asian population. The community of Vietnamese, Thai, and Chinese is so vibrant and strong that even Publix has signs out front written in Vietnamese.
