Hi, I am knitting in Lafayette. Do you guys have some good yarn shops in Baton Rouge? :knitting:

It's a really nice store! I've also heard good things about Quarter Stitch on Magazine Street, but I just don't have much desire to drive to New Orleans.

I am also in Baton Rouge, I'm brand new to knitting. I tried to teach myself a few years ago and didn't succeed, I just found this website and I am currently doing better. I can't wait to do a real project, right now i'm just learning the steps.

Luling here, just outside New Orleans. I've been searching for other knitters near me for awhile, but most are a long drive away. I taught myself to knit a year ago, using this website. I knit in combination style, it's just easier for me. Knitting scarves weren't enough for me, so I ventured into sweaters, and very much enjoying it. Although, finish work just kills me!!! Can't stand doing it HAHA! I have many projects that need only finish work. My husband tells me "FINISH A PROJECT!" He just doesn't get it !! HAHA

I'm on the Northshore. Taught myself to knit on the internet. Both my daughters knit and we have a great little shop here called 'Knitwits' where we by our supplies. They teach classes too.

Hi Paula! What are you working on?? I'm keeping it simple. Scarfs. Basically, knitting simple is like therapy for me. It's been a rough four months for us. My son has been ill, so this has been a good stress reliever.

I'm in Shreveport. Anyone else?

I live just outside of New Orleans. I haven't been able to find many knitters near me since I seem to live in the middle of no where. I've heard a lot about many of the stores around here but haven't ventured to any of them yet.

batregre - Where at outside of New Orleans?

I'm in Slidell. I'd love to meet other local knitters!
