Indian Trail???!!!! That's where I live!!!!!

I guess we know now that we will probably get to meet!

There are plenty of options for buying yarn in Charlotte. I haven't been to all of them, but here are the ones I have seen.

Cottage Yarn (my cousin's store located in Mint Hill)
The Peace of Yarn (now located in Matthews)
The Yarn Shop by Rainy Day Creations (located in historic Pineville, near Carolina Place Mall)

Here are some other yarn shops in Charlotte that I have yet to investigate.
Baskets of Yarn - I've heard that she doesn't have prices on the baskets, so I'm tempted to go there and yell out "How much is this one?" over and over again at each basket I come to.
Charlotte Yarn - don't know anything about that place.
Stitch Fine Yarns - ditto


Here is the Yarn Store Map for Charlotte.
(Peace of Yarn has moved to Matthews, so the map is not correct on that one.)
