HI!
I just now came across this thread. I live in Waynesville, NC (aka Waynesvegas ). There is only one place in Waynesville that carries yarn. But, in Asheville, (about 30 mins from me) there are a few good yarn stores. The Yarn Nook, Yarn Paradise, and Earth Guild. All three are great stores for anyone who is ever up this way. If there ever is a NC Knitter get together, please let me know! I would definately come!

Here is the Yarn Store Map for North Carolina. Hopefully, you can find something there!

You're welcome, Bel! I don't know why I didn't post it earlier. I'm just a KNIT wit.

I am also in NC. Originally from S. Texas, though I learned to knit from a great friend when I was living near Albany, NY. I am back in Raleigh now. I am really loving this area and have found a knitting group that meets bimonthly in Wake Forest. I am still a novice knitter. I am trying to adapt to continental style from my makeshift style that I devised. While my way works just fine with straight needles, I'd never be able to use circulars. (I've been balancing the left in my lap and throwing the yarn.) Ah well, no one ever said change was easy.

Hickory Yarn Shops
Has anyone been to the yarn shops in Hickory? I've got some time this weekend and I thought I'd venture over.

Sorry Bel. I've never been to the shops in Hickory. I've never ventured further than Charlotte since I started knitting 4 years ago.

I'm still hoping that we can have a get-together for North Carolina knitters. I'm very sick right now, so I can't do any planning. Just post your ideas here and we'll see what we can work out. We could have it in Charlotte, or another city, depending on the number of KH knitters we have in the different cities. It would be great if one of you has a large van or SUV that holds 10 or more. That way, we could meet, then ride together to tour the yarn shops in the city where we congregate.

I was originally wanting to meet for my birthday, but I can't see that happening now that I have whooping cough. (My birthday is January 7th.)
