Yeah the cold has definitely helped the skiing! The rumor mill was saying that one of the slopes was going to close if it was going to stay warm. Hopefully that wont happen.

New to Charlotte, NC and new to this blog
Hi! My name is Larissa and I am a new Carolinian. I moved to South Charlotte about six month ago and I love it! Before I came to Charlotte, I lived in Orlando for a year and a half; in Plantation, FL for two years; in New York City for quite sometime; went to school in Washington, DC for three years; and I am originally from the Dominican Republic.

I am the proud mother of a five year old boy and I also have a wonderful husband.

I taught myself how to crochet about 18 years ago and I'm currently teaching myself how to knit. I love making dolls and baby stuff. I would like to start a knitting/crochet school at the elementary school in my area but I still don't know how to go about it. I never taught anyone before. I don't even know anyone who knits or crochet or that would be willing to volunteer an hour or two per week to teach the kids with me. If anyone out there has any tip, I would really appreciate it.

I just found out about this website and I love it! The videos are so helpful.

I'm currently working on a doll and a couple of baby/preemie hats.

I would love to meet people in the area!

Good night everyone,

Larissa

Well, we missed my birthday in January, so we can do whatever you guys want. I'm not able to use a church van, because I'm not a designated driver for the church.

We might just have to meet somewhere and knit at one place, or else carpool in two cars or something if we want to go to several shops. (We have to save room for shopping bags!! )

If we do it in Charlotte, here are the shops available:
Charlotte Yarn - in Charlotte
Stitch Fine Yarns - in Charlotte
Baskets of Yarn - in Charlotte
Cottage Yarn - in Mint Hill
The Peace of Yarn - in Matthews

I'm sure my cousin at Cottage Yarn would let us sit and knit at her shop.

I've only been to one other shop on the list - The Peace of Yarn. They were nice to me twice, and rude to me twice, so I don't know how they'll treat us.

There are some other shops in Pineville, but they are kind of hard to get to, and their shop hours leave much to be desired.

What options do we have in other cities?

Thanks Laura! Not ideas about knitogethers. I've never been to one.

How long have you been knitting? I'm basically just starting, so I have a lot to learn. Have you ever taught any kids how to knit? If so, how was your experience? I want to create a knitting/crochet club at the elementary school in my area, but I'm a little scared. I'm a self taught knitter/crocheter and I have never taught anyone before. Any suggestions?

Larissa

A Charlotte girl here!

I'd love to meet up. I'll just keep checking the thread to see if what you guys come up with time and place-wise. I'm still a new driver, so if I can come will depend on where we end up.

i can't wait to meet up. i am not a designated driver for my church either, or i would bring one of our vans, even though i am in shelby. i don't mind meeting at one place and knitting and shopping, let's just make sure it is a good one with a nice supply of yarn, i am saving all my money until then! it will be my first time knitting with other people, and the first time i go to a lys since there aren't any in shelby. i can't wait!!!

edited because i can't spell
