Hi, I live in Colorado, but also visit Madison, AL fairly often. My only complaint about Yarn Expressions is that whenever I visit they seem to be closed for the holiday and don't open again until after I am leaving. It would be great to find other knitters there who meet other than at the yarn shop so the meetings wouldn't be suspended while I am there. Also, there is a guy named Lewis in Harvest, AL who sells me buffalo fiber that I love to spin. Right now I am working on some that I blended with silk fiber to spin. It is working up really nicely. One batch was better carded and was finer silk and came out smooth and one batch was with silk noil and came out kind of tweedy. All good, though.
