> I'm a knitting teacher in Norwalk, where the Ragg
> Shop also closed. Wasn't great for yarn, but if you
> needed a crochet hook, or a darning needle, it was
> at least close. And Knit Together in Stamford
> closed, which wasn't my favorite, but it was at
> least there. And now Knotty Girl, which is such a
> cool store.
> I've been so frustrated I decided to
> open a Knit Nook--not a full-sized store, which I
> can't manage myself. I am carrying needles and
> crochet hooks, notions, vintage buttons, some yarns
> (vintage and new, a small selection), and kits for
> smaller projects, mostly geared toward new
> knitters--as much as I can fit in a 5 by 5 space.
> All of it is inside the T-Party Antiques and Tea
> Room in Darien (662-9689), and most
> afternoons--Tuesday through Saturday, there is
> knitting going on in and around the Knit Nook.
> If you need a larger store with a huge yarn
> selection, the Knit Nook may not do much for you,
> but if you want tea and scones and a nice place to
> hang out and knit, and maybe learn something new and
> pick up a few items you need, I'd love to see you.
> And I'd love to get your ideas about what you would
> most like me to carry in the Knit Nook. There's
> also a monthly class schedule--short, as I do all
> the teaching myself--which is available by email, if
> you want to join the list.
> I'm also hoping I can gather a small knitting
> community nearby and generate some interest in
> community projects, such as chemo caps and/or
> preemie caps at the local hospitals, etc. (I've
> wished I could join in with the squares project, but
> I don't have evening time available for meetings.)
> I do like to keep up with what the group is talking
> about, and hope to hear from some of you.
