I am going to be in Vancouver for 9 days in May .... are there any yarn or fiber shops I shouldn't miss? We will be at the Downtown Harbour Marriott.

There is Urban Yarns, Three Bags Full and Birkeland Brothers near downtown. Three Bags Full and Birkeland are about 6 blocks away from each other and Birkeland carries fibre as well as yarn.

http://www.threebagsfull.ca/

If you have time to venture further, near the airport is Wool and Wicker.
http://www.woolandwicker.com/

Out a bit further where I live we have 88 Stitches and Knitopia. Knitopia also has fibre as well as yarn. If you have a car, just take HWY #1 east to 200th Street exit (about 1 hour out of downtown but worth the drive).


HTH,
Marilyn

Hello! I grew up in Toronto and my mom still lives there.
Meetup.com (http://www.meetup.com/) is a site where you can put in your country, postal code and interest and it will show you all groups related. I put in a Toronto postal code and "knitting" and tons of groups came up.
I know that many yarn stores have "knit nights", like Lettuce Knit on Nassau street on wednesday (I think!). Find a yarn store close by and ask them about knit night- they will at least know where you can find one.

Well, I think I'm the only one from NEWFOUNDLAND who posted to this thread yet. Seems to be all the knitters around here are pretty traditional, not the type to be on forums and stuff. One day, knitting will make a comeback and be a hip, young, urban-type hobby again. I'm 30, not young, not old. I had no interest in knitting until I started looking for unique baby shower gift ideas. And I'm not talking sweaters and hats, I'm talking stuffed toys, diaper bags, and mobiles. But after I learned how to knit, I didn't do any baby gifts, except the one for my daughter, but I did other projects instead. Now its my hobby-du-jour!

Hi everyone :muah: I am on Vancouver Island. I am a very novice knitter as although I learned the basic stitches as a child I never seemed to be able to follow a pattern. I then became friendly with a very good knitter to taught me to break it down into sections like following a recipe. It's all very slowly starting to make sense although I have a long way to go!

:waving: HI from Nanaimo! I'm still kind of "new" to knitting - used to do it years (and years and...) ago but never anything too hard lol. My gdaughter rekindled my interest in it last year (she was 12), and now I'm loving it again - mainly knitting for my old dolls. I have a couple that were mine when I was a kid. My Mom kept them in a box for me all those years when I'd forgotten they existed. Fun to see so many other Canadians here! :grphug:

I'm from Milton, Ontario.
I've been knitting for about a year. I asked for ages for a friend or my mom to teach me and I just kept getting the 'maybe later' thing, so I learned by watching videos on YouTube and reading tutorials.
If there's anyone near Milton that wants to get together and help me figure out what I'm doing and how to not lose my place constantly that would be amazing. :)
