Hey I was wondering if someone could give me the lowdown on LYSes is Phoenix and surrounds. I'm moving in July and currently am an LYS employee and knitting teacher, so I'd like to know what the prospects are out there. Thanks.
Hey Guys. I'm facing the prospect of moving from Atlanta to Phoenix and am trying to figure out how to do so without going several thousand dollars into debt. Do we just fly out and buy all new stuff and a car when we get there? Do we drive our not in the best shape cars and a rented truck the 2000 miles in the middle of the summer? Are there other options I as yet know nothing about? What are reputable moving companies that you guys have dealt with that move all your stuff for you? I want this to be a DIY as possible, but a) I'm not sure how DIY that is, and b) I'm not sure how much I can convince the husband of. Also, I have a one year old, so there's that for consideration. My dream scenario is to drive out and take my husband's parents with us to share driving slash watch the baby slash see the sights over four days, but with truck rental fees and hotels, that stacks up pretty quickly. It's about 31 hours of driving as far as the mapquest flies. Anyway... that's what I've got. Thanks in advance for all your help. You guys totally do rock.
Hey Guys. What a good board you guys have here. The husband is looking at attending Ariz. State for graduate school in the fall. I was just wondering if anybody knows anything about the school, their health insurance or their graduate housing or daycare? He'll be in the English department. Where is a good place to live outside of student housing for grad school budgets? I also have a one year old, so anything about the neighborhoods around the school or the safety of the city in general would be great, too. One more thing. Somebody mentioned something about light rail. Can I get a timeline on that? Thanks so much you guys.
Hey guys. I'm looking at going back to school and one of my options is to finish my undergrad and then enroll in a master's program at the same school. This school (okay. it's Alabama) has a books arts program that seems really good. Basically it would be an excuse to make things and get an advanced degree out of it and maybe some professional options. I really know nothing about the field, but I have some expereicne as an english major and a rare bookseller. can anybody tell me what my options would be with a book arts degree? Would I be better off with a library science degree? And I need a portfolio. Would this need to be books, or just things I have made, for instance, I'm a knitter. Anything at all would help. Thanks.
Hey, the knitting meetup for this month is this coming wednesday, and for my part of town, we're meeting at Jake's in decatur on Church St at seven pm. If anybody from either of the craft groups (the new one or the old one) wants to come out we can discuss plans for the future. And there will be people available (me, at least) to do knitting lessons, too.
Hey All. I was in Alabama this weekend and went to The Knit Shop in Montgomery. It's on Carter Hill in the Mulberry Forest Ave Area, near Huntington and the Country Club. Anyway... The Knit Shop shares space with and antiques place and is beautifully furnished and they have loads of beautiful yarn. They carry Colinette, Plymouth, Berroco, K1C2. The staff was very accomodating and even stayed open late so II coul;d get my yarn fix.
Hey. I work at an LYS and we're thinking of trying something new. I want to run a knitalong through the store. And have meetings one night a week for a month, to encourage people to start that first sweater or poncho or whatever. There will be two hour sessions once a week for basic instruction and hand holding. Sort of like insurance to go along with a project. Does this sound like a good idea? And what would you say is a reasonable price for this? And conversely, what services would you like to see offered by an LYS?
Hey. We started carrying some of this stuff at the store that I work at and none of it has moved at all. I was wondering what some of you thought about this stuff? Too pricey? Not cool enough? And, conversely, what would be good stuff to carry (besides Jenny Hart patterns) for good embroidering supplies? We already go in for cross stitch and needlepoint, so we've got a lot of supplies.
So this is more than 200 patterns many of which can be found free on the web and not a few of which blow a lot. But it does have many hat patterns, many kids patterns and doll patterns too. even a pattern for finger puppets. It's a mixed bag, but for $14 if you get ten patterns out of it it's a super deal. I like it, within it's limitations and I recommend it. anyone else have any thoughts?
