So FINALLY got the go ahead for my vacation!! :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: and i'm going to Dubai to visit my father who works there with my brother and sister. I know there is a KH member that lives there.

Is there any knitting stores there? The last time i was there I saw fabric stores (which were fabulous but i couldn't find any knitting stores) but i kept getting lost with all the construction. my brother and sister are willing to go because they both love the sweaters that i made them.

Hi, I was was lucky enough to go to Dubai when i was pregnant with my son . Anbout 7 years ago. It is a wonder place that is clean and hospitable. We stayed at the Jeremaiah beach hotel which was just dreamy. The room were bigger than my whole apartment lol.
I am not sure if there are any yarn shops there as i was not knitting in those days but there was lots of beautiful material and gold jewellery.
I am sure you will have a lovely time. It is very hot there so take plenty of sun lotion.:)

if i don't find any knitting stores at least i can pick up some beautiful fabrics.

My father lives by the dubai harbor area.

My sister is there on business right now. She works for MD Andersen in Houston. She is staying at the Grand Hyatt (:inlove: ) where a room goes for about $450 a night. Good thing she doesn't have to pick up the tab! So far, she hasn't located any yarn. I doubt they would have much wool considering how hot it is there. Lots of good fabric though...
