I just had to pop in here and say hi, even though I don't live in NC anymore. I was born and raised in Greenville, then spent 6 years in Durham. (In fact, I think I probably went to the same high school that someone - Shavon? - went to.)

After hopping all over the south, I'm in Atlanta now, but miss NC and would love to end up there for good someday!

I think I found another yarn store...this time in Valdese. I saw the sign on my way to Hickory and will fill you all in when I know more. They have a website though, www.hollybeeyarns.com .

That appears to be a yarn manufacturing company. They sell their own yarns in the retail shop. I don't think they carry other brands, though. But, they might have some good stuff - you never know until you try!

I'm in NC
Hello all, I am in State Road NC. Just north of Elkin. I've only been knitting for about a year, self taught, with a little help from this web site the ladies in a yarn store in Elkin. A Circle of Yarn is the store. Very nice and helpful. They laughed when I birthed my first hat. I started knitting funfur scarfs and wanted to make hats to match. so I did. More recently I've made several baby hats but am having a hard time grasping the concept of gaging stitches. With the baby hats I just went by sight on the size. I'm pretty close but would like to learn how to properly gague.

Anyway, I am about an hour north of Charlotte and would love to go on the YS crawl. Mostly for the chance to meet other knitters and learn some more tricks of the trade.

Shandeh, I know its been a while since your post that you were sick. I hope you are better now.

Hi vikynet!

I'm feeling much better. Thanks for asking!

My knee is still bothering me, but that's the story of my life lately. I would love to get something set up for us all to meet soon. Do any of you have a van we could use? I'm sure we could all chip in to pay for the gas during our yarn store crawl.

Hi I just wanted to introduce myself! I am a newbie knitter. I'm from a little town just north of Greensboro and at the moment I'm a student at Appalachian State in Boone! I've just been knitting for about 1 1/2 years and I haven't ventured out from scarves, hats and headbands. Hopefully I can find enough time to make a sweater, thats my goal for 2007!
