I’m terrible at keeping New Year’s Resolutions (who isn’t?). I am still trying to consistently post show notes, but sometimes the only way to get an episode published is to just get it up there!
My recording schedule has been a bit wonky lately, and I think I’m going to have to officially change things up. While I like recording in the mornings, it’s not really working with my schedule anymore. Stay tuned!
And now…show notes!
I visited Park Avenue Yarns in League City on Sunday for a meet-up with some local knitters. Local to Houston. None of us live near this LYS, but it was so worth the trip! Park Avenue Yarns is a lovely store with everything you could want! I was like a kid in a candy store! I was mostly good, though, and only bought one treat. The other things I bought were either necessities (some stitch holders and Eucalan) or something I have been wanting to buy but have been unable to find at other yarn stores (bare yarn and dye!). If you are ever in the Houston area and want to go on a yarny adventure, I highly recommend making the trek to Park Avenue Yarns!
