North Carolina Knitters
Since I'm a native Carolinian, and I still live here, I guess I'm as good as anybody to start a thread for North Carolina knitters.

I was born in Charlotte, and have lived in the vicinity my whole life. I would love to get to know other knitters in the area.

I grew up in SC, but have lived in NC for over 25 years now. I live in Clemmons, just outside of Winston Salem, and have been knitting for just about a year now. I've become badly addicted!

I live in Hickory, but am originally from Virginia. I have traveled all over the state to many different yarn stores. My current favorite is Knit Picky in Winston-Salem. Lizzitude-have you been to this one yet? The owner is very nice and has a great selection of yarns.

Would love to have a knit-together and meet some of you!!!

Yes, I love Knit Picky.....it is a really friendly store, and that's where I head first. Let me know if you come to shop - maybe we could meet up there!

I didn't grow up in NC - i'm a Mid-Westerner. But I've lived on and off in NC for the past 14 years now, with a 5.5 year chunk in the middle spent living in England while working on my PhD. But i always came back to NC when coming home to the US as my entire family has moved here. Before England, i lived in Greenville for years and now I'm in Greensboro, but also spend a quite a fair amount of time in Wilmington as well.

It's funny, i don't really know any knitters because i'm self-taught. So i spend most of my time "talking" to other knitters here, not in the flesh. I haven't been to Knit Picky - i guess i should check it out!!

From Wilmington
I am a new North Carolinian. We moved to Wilmington almost a year ago now. I LOVE it here and wish we had moved here 10 years ago!!

I am a new knitter, still learning the ropes but I LOVE it already and I'm anxious to learn more and move on to more 'interesting' (read: difficult) projects. Knitting scarfs is useful for learning but it feels tedious to me. I'll have to knit a bunch to give to family and friends out of state because I don't really need a scarf anymore. LOL

I've found a great yarn store here in Wilmington and I'm very excited to start buying quality yarns (as opposed to yarn from Wal*Mart!), I look forward to building my new stash up. Although I'm sure my husband isn't going to be thrilled with the idea of me spending more money on yet ANOTHER craft.

Looking forward to getting to know y'all.

Travel down highway 17 to Ocean ISle Beach
Hi, I am in NC----but almost to the SC line (7 1/2 miles away)....I live in Ocean Ridge Plantation a neighborhood just off of highway 17 and south of Shallotte, NC.

I have to go to Wilmington, NC or the old Cherry Grove section of North Myrtle, SC beach to find a yarn store.....the one near the swing bridge going to Cherry Grove Beach is great. I am a school teacher with limited time so I buy yarn on line most often....however, I am retiring at the end of this year and look forward to knitting even more.

For you eastern NC knitters, I have been to Angel Wings in Southport, Island Knits in Pawley's Island and the one in N. Myrtle Beach that I can never remember the name of. It helps that the person who got me started lives in N. Myrtle and she has taken me yarn shopping.

I told you guys I have been to a lot of yarn stores in NC, not all but a lot. Still more to conquer!!!
