Any Knitter's in Alabama?
Hi I live in the Tuscaloosa Area, are there any knitter's that live near me or any that live in the State?:knitting:

aawww, I wish we lived closer. I am in Huntsville. At least I we can be knitting forum buddies :yay:
Take care.

My husbands neice and a high school classmate of mine live in Huntsville, but I have never been there. Have you ever been to Tuscaloosa? I just took some baby caps to a local yarn shop called Serendipity's . They are having a challenge with another shop in La. for the Alabama/LSU game. They will be donated to the local hospital.
Happy Knitting

Hi, I visit my daughter in Huntsville (actually Madison) all the time.
(I live in Wisconsin.) Have you ever been to Yarn Expressions in Huntsville?

Hi Kathleen and Delores
I have one child that goes to school in Madison :p Yarn expressions is a really nice store, just not close to where I live(opposite ends of town). It is easier for me to get there from work since I am in the medical district. I do go there when they have their once a year sale with all the yarn 40% off :woohoo:

I have been to Tuscaloosa many years ago for a football game, but haven't had a reason to go back.

Oh, Rhonda,
Was that you I accidently bumped into at the Yarn Expression sale?
I got some beautiful yarn that day, how about you?

nursepurl 10-29-2007 06:03 PM

Kathleen I probably did see you there...I'm 5'9" with short light red hair:shrug: lol---like that couldn't be just about anyone, right! I did get some koigu, enought to keep me busy for a while. Come to think of it I don't think I bought anything else but the koigu :aww:


KathleenG 10-29-2007 08:54 PM

Hi, Rhonda,
Is the koigu the yarn that is kind of rough and comes from Japan and changes color?

The one I like is soft merino, it's kind of a variegated look. I know which one you are talking about and that stuff would scratch my skin off. Here is a link for you

NOW I know what you mean! I bought some of that, too! In the periwinkle kind of colors, to make socks. It's sitting in a bag somewhere. . .lol.
