Mosaic Monday


Mosaic Monday is hosted each week by the lovely Mary.
Each mosaic is different. Each a different story to tell.

I hope you are in the mood for a visit to another yarn shop.
All those wonderful colors -- just like a new box of crayons!

It's off to Nancy's Knits we go!


Mosaic of Nancy's Knits


Nancy's Knits is one of the oldest yarn shops in Houston with the largest selection of novelty yarns. It's a great place to sit, knit and share with friends. The first time I was ever in the shop, the ladies were just finishing their meal from the Mexican restaurant just down the way and were ready to hit the needles! Mexican food and knitting...hard to beat!!!!!!!

Mosaic of Nancy's Knits


From Nancy's Ravelry site:
"Nancy's Knits used to be called Turrentine's, but 2 years after my human pet, Nancy adopted me, I was renamed Nancy's Knits. I now live at 5300 N. Braeswood, #30. I used to be on Beechnut. I have LOTS of yarn that is looking to be adopted. These yarns need a good home!"
(I try to help whenever I can.)

Wishing everyone a wonderful week.

Joy to You!

Oh, I love that thought...Just like a new box of crayons. I love these yarns, my sister, Susan knits so beautifully. She taught me about the different kinds of yarn. So lovely that you can knit. This shop looks wonderful.

I am always impressed by people who can knit. I can crochet but the knitting just doesn't go my way. My mother was fabulous at it but I guess I skipped that gene.

I wish I could knit! I can keep going if someone starts off for me but then I never know what to do when I have finished. How talented you are!

Love that jacket and that hat. Makes for a lovely MM> Thanks for stopping by my neck of the woods. The only time I ever get to Houston is a layover on the way to Austin. Our son lives in Austin.

Makes me wish for cold weather so I can wrap myself in something soft and warm. (Well, actually, almost everything makes me wish for cold weather these days.)
