I'm listening from Austin, TX. (Thanks for teaching me about the great public radio streams that I didn't even know I had in iTunes!)
Regarding the cost of knitting... it's really an economical hobby. Non-knitters might be horrified to spend $20 on a pair of socks, but that $20 represents 6 or more hours of entertainment for the average knitter who's not a speed demon, and at the end of it you've added to your wardrobe or created a gift for someone else. That's a better value than going to the movies. You can spend less by buying economical yarn from online stores like KnitPicks, or you can splurge on a $25 skein of hand-dyed or handspun yarn and do a lot less damage to your credit card than splurging on a purchase at your local mall.
