Northern California LYS?
Hi everyone. I could use some help.
I'm in the Fremont (Newark) area and I can't seem to find any LYS. Does anyone know of one in the area or at least somewhat close? I am willing to travel a bit. My only options right now are Michael's and well Walmart lol. I think having a LYS right dwn the street from my last residence spoiled me a bit
Well any help would really be appreciated. Thanks!
Happy knitting :XX:

Hi!

I'm in Fremont also! I order most of my yarn online, but I've been told there is a great yarn shop in Pleasanton. I've not been there yet (been meaning to go), so I'm not sure exactly where it is located.

I did a google search though and found this address:

MAIN STREET KNITS
205-A MAIN ST.
PLEASANTON, CA 94566
925-399-5899

If you go, let me know how it is!

Thank you so much for responding Amber. I appreciate it!

I don't know when I will be able to make it out to Pleasanton myself, but I am definitely writing down that address and will be sure to check it out (hopefully soon lol)

Whereabouts in Fremont are you? (If you don't mind my asking) I am in Newark and I really don't know much of the area.

I'm in the Irvington district (south Fremont). How do you like California so far? I've only lived here about a year myself, but I love it. Pretty much *everything* is close by -- from mountains to ocean, big cities to quaint little towns. And, the weather is hard to beat!

The only thing missing is a yarn shop in Fremont! LOL.

Amber - I love it out here. Very much enjoying the weather especially since I just moved from Hot Arizona lol. I think it is just beautiful! I don't know my way around all that well as yet, but I sure am enjoying it. I think I know where the Irvington District is.. not that far! Did you move from within CA or from elsewhere?


Jodi - WOW! that is quite a list lol. Thank you very much! I think some of those might be a bit far for me, but they are very much appreciated! I have bookmarked all of them and going to keep addresses handy.

Thank you both for all of your help!

Yes, thank you Jodi!! I've heard of Community -- it sounds like an awesome place. I'll definitely have to check it out sometime.

Aello -- We moved here from Dallas, Texas. I'm not originally from Texas, but my dh had a job there. I also lived in southern New Mexico for 5 years, so I know what you mean about the heat!

You know, there is a knitting/crochet group that meets every week (Thursdays, I think) in Fremont. I have a couple of friends that go to that and say it is nice. I haven't gone yet b/c I have a 7 mo baby and it's hard to get away in the evenings. But, when he is older, I plan on attending. Anyway, if you're interested, pm me and I'll get more info. for you about where and what time they meet.

Try these ones:

http://www.theknittingbasket.com/
(Just off Highway 13 - if you're traveling westbound from 580, take the HWY 13 connection)

In Alameda:
YARN!
2311 Santa Clara Ave, Alameda, CA 94501
(Haven't been here, yet, but I've driven by and it looks like they have a great selection of yarn)

I currently live in San Leandro, so these are some I found not too far from you.

Thank you Leapinfrog! Added to the list! I have just been spoiled I guess lol. There was one literally right down the block where I lived before and anytime I needed something it was just a quick drop in lol.

I really appreciate all of your help... Now to convince DH to go with so he can help me carry the loot lol. yeah right, I don't think I could go that crazy with him just standing there lol.

Amber, congrats on the bundle of joy! And my, my, you do know what the heat is like lol. That is why I am enjoying the weather out here so much! What about that group that meets? Would you happen to have any more info on that by any chance

Well thank all of you wonderful people for all of your help!
Take care and Happy knitting :XX:
