In case you're near Savannah -- Rebecca can help you out there. There are at least 3 stores that I remember ... with The Red Needle being tops.

That's right, Becca. And you better stop by to see ME and the Ya-Yas! You can guest spot at our meeting, too. We'd be sooo cool to have a DESIGNER at our meetings!

Rebecca Thank you! Thank you! You were so right. The Red Needle
was great. Got home an hour ago and couldn't wait to tell you.
You are so lucky to have a shop like that in your town. So many of
the new shops only carry high end fancy yarns. This store carries
moderate to high end. Wools, blends, acrylics, angoras,fancy etc etc.
There were more samples than I have ever seen in a store. Books and magazines galore. I have been to a lot of stores up and down the east coast.

IMHO this is one of the best stores on the east coast. Last summer
I had the chance to visit Webs, Wool Connection and many others in
New England. The Red Needle is like a New England store.

You were so right!!
Colleen
PS- Micky gave me her card and website-www.redneedleyarns.com.
and I told her that you sent me.

I apologize, Colleen, I've not been online much & missed your post...I'm so GLAD that you got a chance to stop by and see my Mickey & Red Needles...ROCKS, don't ya think?! I must tell her about your post, I've got to run over to the shop to get some dpns! I hope that you got a chance to meet & chat with Mickey...she's a DOLL and a WEALTH of knitting knowledge :thumbsup: !
You can find my pattern right here (http://www.knitpicks.com/Projects/Projects_Display_Yarn.aspx?itemid=50395220&yarnid=5420119) ;) . Thanks for asking :D
EDIT :doh: DUH ME...I just reread your post & see that you did get to meet Mickey...LOL, did she tell you that she loves my husband?! She always tells me that whenever I'm in the shop! She says that in all of her years of knitting biz that he is the only husband that comes in & shops for his wife, knows exactly what he's looking for & picks it up & happily buys it & is on his way. Or she will say that he is so very patient & happily walks around the store with me when we are there together. :inlove: Lonnie :inlove: just makes an impression wherever he is bc he's the best husband in the world ;)

:D Thanks a bunch! I was actually inspired by a pair of socks in Mickey's shop. I asked her if she had a pattern & they were sold out & she told me to just crochet the loops on a regular sock pattern....I have NO IDEA what to do with a crochet hook other than provisional cast on & picking up sts, at that time, I didn't even know about that...LOL, I had only been knitting socks for maybe a month or a bit more and knitting all together for about 7 months! So, I just came home & was looking in a book that I have on purses & I saw the loop st. & practiced it, then did it on the socks :D Knitting and Imagination go very well together :thumbsup:
