Alabama Knitters
I am down in Troy, a small town with NO knitting shop. I have been to the one in Cahaba Heights in B'ham, but it is quite a drive (3hrs).

I would also like to know what you like to knit during the 10 months of summer we have here, LOL. Now that it is cooling off (80 is the high today) I am getting back in the groove.

Hi Laura!! I'm in the Montgomery area.. well I work in Montgomery but live just north of here closer to Prattville. There's a knit shop in Montgomery on Carter Hill Road that I keep meaning to go and visit and several big craft stores in Montgomery with a ton of stuff. Email me or something and lets talk sometime

I'm not from Alabama, but I visit there many times a year for Sacred Harp singings... so do I get to be an honorary Alabamian?

(Mostly I'm up on Sand Mountain when I'm down there... but sometimes B'ham too, and other places like Huntsville or Cullman or Collinsville...)

I am always in the blogs!!

I didn't think it was that obvious, Karen...

Is anyone in N Alabama or maybe southern Middle Tennessee?


ETA: Laura, during our 10 months of summer, I knit with wool and pretend I'll be able to wear it someday. You know, that one really cold day we get once every 5 years? I'm knitting for THAT day!

I don't know the exact dates yet, and 1 1/2 hours is no big deal to drive-- company rentals always have unlimited mileage and they pay for gas!! When I was in Denver, I drove over 1000 miles in two weeks going to all the amazing yarn stores and national parks. It's going to be around the 28th and for two weeks after. I should find out in the next couple days. At the least, I'll have the weekend of Dec 2/3 and I'll be bored out of my mind! Mind some company for an afternoon?

I don't mind company at all!! The 2nd is perfect--it's a Saturday, and both LYSs will be open (well, hopefully--my favorite was closed yesterday and I've no idea why. I'll email the owner to make sure she'll be open the 2nd.) The 2nd is also ideal because it's just before finals, so I'll have no work related crap getting in the way of a good yarn crawl and knit-together!
