I lived in Southington, and my husband was from Durham. I heard there hasn't been any snow up there yet.

Hi -- Redding here!

Where do you buy your yarn? I know there is (was?) a yarn store in Southbury in Heritage Village but I have never made it there.

I mostly go to A Stitch in Time in Bethel and sometimes to Nancy O's in Ridgefield and even more rarely to Knitting Central in Westport.

I am planning field trips to Stamford and Greenwich and maybe over into Westchester. We really live in a yarn rich state!

I've been to the knitting store in Mystic but the yarn bug hadn't really hit me yet so I don't think I bought much :doh:

Wasn't the snow fun the other day? My kids and I played hooky the next day even though there wasn't much on the ground. They were outside with the dogs until past 8 pm on Thursday night playing in what little snow there was!

Nice to see other Nutmeggers here! :muah:

i think there is still a yarn shop in southbury,but i hear they aren't friendly there. there is one in naugatuck that some one had bought opening feb 15th. she is going to be carrying lions brand. i find that the yarn shops are very expensive, so i go to walmart or ac moores, unless there is something i really need then i go to the yarn shops.
i couldnt believe the snow. i loved when we had the warm weather. i could live in that forever. well nice chatting with you. keep in touch. it is nice to have some one in ct that knits maggie

Hello all,

I live in Southington, and am a fairly novice knitter. I usually go to Creative Fibers in South Windsor, although I've been to the Wool Connection, Mystic Yarns, the place in Southbury, and several others around the state.

For a nice day trip (drive up for lunch and shopping), hubby and I drive up to Webs in Northampton, MA.

ACMoore is close by too, but their selection is mostly acrylic, or wool-acrylic blends. I do tend to be attracted to more expensive yarns, such as Colinette.
