I've been lurking on this forum for awhile, but I haven't posted yet. I'm a little shy sometimes.
I'm 27 years old, and have been knitting for a couple of years, but only seriously for the last few months. I love knitting and I have friends who knit, and I have also gotten my sister addicted to knitting.
I live on the East Coast of Canada in a city with only 1 LYS. My other options are Walmart and Zellers. We do have a Lewiscraft, but I found out last night that they are going out of business. They are currently having a 30% sale on everything in the store. I just thought the other Canadian Knitters might like to know that, so they stock up on some of their favorite yarns. I went tonight and spent about $70 on yarn. I'm not sure what I'm going to make with it all yet, but the savings were too good to pass up.
I look forward to chatting with you all, and sharing some of my FO's, as I make more and more things. Currently, I'm making a purse-like bag that should be ready for felting by tomorrow.
