Southwest/Central Arkansas, Anyone?

Does anyone else live in the BFE of the ArkLaTex?

Why yes I live further south than you, BR, La. I am new to knitting and tring to not give up. Got anything motivational Please share!

Nothing other than the traditional cliches. But whenever I think about giving up, I just look at some of the patterns that you either have to buy the finished product at near $1000.00 (Yes, I put the decimal in the right place.) or learn to knit in order to have.
