On the afternoon of the 5th of July my hubby is picking up our rental car and we will leave in the am of the 6th to head up to the Chesapeake Va. area to help our daughter-in-law with the grandson(his daycare is closed and she has classes all day)and to also see our youngest son's ship The U.S.S Enterprise dock after the cruise they have finished.
I would like to know if there are any yarn shops in that area I might like to visit. If there are, please list the name of the shop and the address of the shop.

Here are links to two so you can also check the hours:
KnitWits (http://www.knitwitsyarn.com/)and the Knitting Corner (http://www.theknittingcorner.com/). Hope you can fit visits into a very full schedule!

I will be going to both shops when we are there so I appreciate the links. I printed the address of both shops since it seems to be close to the are where they live. I was up there in 2009 for Christmas and I remember the name of one road that we traveled on when we would go shopping.

On the first day I was here we went shopping and we went to The Knitting Corner where I purchased 5 skeins of Sugar Rush , a Queensland Collection yarn. It is 100% sugar cane viscose. The regular price was 7.99 a skein but had been marked down to 5.59 a skein. The color is a silvery gray and I intend to use it to knit something for ME!
I also got a chance to talk with Sue Von Ohlsen, Master Knitter. She asked how long I had been knitting and I told her that I taught my self to knit when I was in high school. I also told her that the next time we are up in Va. I will go back to her shop for a longer visit.

Yesterday afternoon my youngest son took me to the KnitWits store where I purchased some baby alpaca yarn . I bought 5 skeins of it along with 2 skeins of Bernat Handecrafter Twists in the Denim colorway.
Thank you so much for the links to those shops. I really enjoyed visiting them during my stay here in Chesapeake,Va.
We leave Aug 2. to go home.
