I'm in Beaufort, 'bout an hour south of Charleston. I go up that way alot, particularly for crafting supplies since there's nothing here in town. :P
I don't know a single other knitter in the area! I know they must be around. Only knitters I've met around here have been at Knit and I never get to chat much since the boy gets impatient about sitting around waiting for me to yarn shop. He doesn't like Knit because they don't have "man chairs" (as he calls them) and regular magazines like some yarn stores.
I'd love to learn to spin but haven't gotten the opportunity to try anything yet.
