North East Ohio Knitters?
Hi there...just wondering if there are any knitters in the North Eastern Ohio area. I'm about 60 minutes East of Cleveland...in a quaint little town, too far away from the yarn store!

Yikes, you must be really clobbered over there in the snow belt! I'm over near Oberlin and we thought we had it bad with 5 inches! I have to tell you, sometimes living near yarn shops can be dangerous......I get most of my yarn in Columbus or Mt. Vernon. Sometimes in Oberlin itself. I mainly knit socks and the local stores don't seem to carry much in the way of interesting sock yarn. I know I can order online but I like to squeeze and fondle my yarn-you know.................kathie aka bunkielovesocks

Hi Bunkie!!! I live in Columbus but my favorite yarn store is Yarn Market... they sell mostly on line but you can go in and look thru the warehouse and purchase yarn too!!! (in Pickerington about 15 minutes from home)

The yarns are all in bins, bins, and more bins... but if you look up online and write down what you want to see, tis awesome. There are a few yarnstores in town and all very nice, but no one has more types then the Yarn Market... Fun to visit too...

Well good luck knitting wonderful things.

I am new at knitting so I can not say their prices are the best but selection is nice and their on line catalog is pretty informative...

I'm in northest ohio in Wooster, we have a small yarn-material store in town, but I found a wonderful one in Avon, Ohio. In a historic barn that was moed in. I'm still trying to learn how to purl stitch because I want to learn how to do socks and mittens. At least those are safe for now. I can crochet just about anything. Knitting that's another story. Have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! xxx
