1  Texas / Texas: Central / Re: Yarn shops in Waco on: December 26, 2010 03:27:14 PM
Hey all . . . I just moved to Waco this summer. I haven't crocheted or knitted in some 20 years, but my daughter wants to pick it up now. I can't seem to find any yarn shops nearby. I thought a yarn shop might be more able/willing to give us some beginner's tips. Are Hobby Lobby and Michaels our only options?

Hi, welcome to Waco! I am a knitter/crocheter type person and I have yet to find any cool yarn shops. I mostly shop at Joan Fabrics and Hobby Lobby. Sorry, Waco is kind of lame that way. For a beginner I would suggest a mid weight yarn/bulky yarn. Nothing tiny for sure! Get a size K or bigger crochet hook or comparable knitting needles. A simple scarf pattern might be easier. Just cast on/chain stitch enough stitches to create a 7-9 inch scarf, depending on your yarn size. Then just do the same stitch on each row until it's long enough! You can search online for beginning patterns and you will find many many blogs all about various people yarn obsession. There are all kinds of helpful hints and beginning projects that you may like. Have fun!
