Any knitters in Langley, B.C.?
I know there are other knitters that live or frequent the Langley area. I can't be the only one buying yarn and such at Michaels and Wal-Mart. I awesome as that would be I don't think those two stores would have their yarn department just for me. Even if I do work at Michaels.

If you're in Langley or area. Let me know. It would be nice to possible arrange a Stitch 'n' Bitch but I'd be happy to know I'm not the only Langleyite on here.

Side note: If you're from the Langley area do you know of any yarn stores in Langley? I know of Langley Yarns, north of Aldergrove. And my mom said she saw a sign for a new wool shop in Walnut Grove but I haven't been able to get over that way yet.

Knitting In Langley
There's a new shop in Langley for all of us Fraser Valley Knitters. It's called Knitopia, and it's on Salt Lane.

My mom drove me over there yesterday. On the way she said "Not sure I should be taking you." I told her I'd be good. She replied "Will you give me your debit card?" I said "Not that good."

I didn't get anything but it definitely gave me some ideas.

Hi, I visit this site often but have just joined the forums. I live in Chilliwack. However, to buy wool I usually drive to Michaels in Langley or Abbotsford. How great to work in Michaels. What kind of projects do you knit?

Hi SmilerMo! Welcome to Knitting Help.

I knit just about everything. Scarves, toques, sweaters, socks, dishcloths etc. I just recently started my first pair of gloves. The only thing I tend not to knit is lace. I'm working on a lace wrap right now and it's going very slowly. I don't pick it up very often and when I do I only knit a couple rows at a time.

Yes it is great to work at Michaels. I'm the knitting instructor at the Langley store. It's fun but can get frustrating when I advertise for classes and no one signs up. But I love the staff discount.

Maureen10 and I are trying to put together a Stitch 'N Bitch in downtown Langley. I know it's a little ways to come but you're more then welcome to attend once we get it going.

You should try this site, http://www.woolworks.org/stores/bc.html, it has a list of yarn stores in different towns. It's not completely up to date but it shows 4 stores in Chilliwack that you might want to check out. Aunt Debbie's is suppose to be really good.

Surrey Knitter
for some reason I am having a problem replying to this message but was happy to see the langley knitter as it is so good to know that there are still some knitters around. I am from surrey, bc and knew to this site but was happy to find it. I have had a hard time finding knitting stores and have been to the Knitopia and it was nice There is also one in N. Westminster called Shan's Needlework and I like that one now that I have found it. I also go to Walmart and Zellers but they are really cutting back on their supply. Michaels is good too I think that I am addicted to knitting and it is nice to know there are other ones that are the same way and I would be interested in hearing from you and joining in the "knit n' bitch" sessions.

Hi Heanorgirl123,

Good to see another Langley knitter. If you're interested in hanging out with a bunch of knitters let me know. I'm on the opposite side of Langley from you, Fort Langley area, but know a few people that live closer to you that try to get together once a week or so.
