bump....

I don't live in Atlanta, but I do travel up there. Where do you like to go? I've been to Knitch shortly after it opened. It was a very nice store but hard to find a place to park.

I'm in Augusta, but that doesn't really help does it?

I'm in Atlanta! I go to Nease's (very nice people, not the greatest selection) and Needle Nook (better selection, but not my vibe as much). I keep meaning to go to Knitch, and recently met a woman who teaches there who was really nice.

I just wish I could find a knitting group who met in my part of town sometime after my kids go to bed. The groups that meet after 7:30 or so all seem too far away...

Hey Ladies--I live in Stockbridge which is about 20-25 miles south of Atlanta and I have a SNB that meets in Morrow on Mt. Zion Rd. at the Caribou Coffee on Monday nights from about 6:30 until we get ready to leave or they kick us out. Some don't trickle in until closer to 7:00ish...it's small but we make do. We used to meet in McDonough at a large coffee shop but some of us had difficulties w/ the owner being rude.

I don't know if any of you are close enough to join us but we'd love to have you if so. My favorite LYS, btw, by far is Knitch. I used to go to why knot knit but don't care for a couple of their policies, etc. I've been to Needlenook--they're helpful and friendly enough--I'm just not in the area too much. I've been to Strings and Strands and it was okay (Sandy Springs area) and I've been to Nease's once but it's been a while ago.

If any of you are in the area and interested in coming to our SNB--we'd love to have you--PM me and let me know your coming. Oh--we also have a yahoo group that we post on: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/southsideSNB

If you are near or travel to Marietta try The Purly Gates right near the Marietta Square. It is located in Historic Marietta Square! 1.5 miles west of the Big Chicken across from Courthouse Building C. 170 Roswell Street, Marietta, GA 30060. Phone number is: (770) 419-4424. Dana and Ginger, the owners are the nicest people and my mentors for my store. They stay open late on Thursdays for Knit Night. I miss that group now that I have my own Knit Night in Jacksonville, AL that night. The Purly Gates is stocked to the gills :envy: and have lots of classes all through the week. www.thepurlygates.com is their website.

In Stone Mountain
Hi all GA knitters! I'm in Stone Mountain. I have a crazy schedule that requires a lot of travel but thought I would chime in. I'm still very new to knitting - just doing my first (easy) sweater now so mainly I drive out to the Michael's in Snellville for supplies but I am going to put the places you have mentioned in my memory and try to get around to them.

Waving around wildly
I'm over here in Douglasville/Dallas/Hiram area and would love to find a group or class that's a bit closer to home. Anyone know of any yarn shops around these parts? I have some of the ones in Marietta/Acworth/Kennesaw on my list when I want to take a Saturday drive but it would be nice to have a local shop.

Anyways, howdy!
