ACMoore is close by too, but their selection is mostly acrylic, or wool-acrylic blends. I do tend to be attracted to more expensive yarns, such as Colinette.

The Yarn Barn in Woodbridge is very good and right off the Merrit, just over the border from New Haven. Also Saybrook Yarn is great on Main St. in Old Saybrook. I live in Norwich

S'nB New Haven (Connecticut)
S'nB New Haven (Connecticut) meets tour times a week in New Haven, North Haven, and Woodbridge:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/SnB_NewHaven
http://knitting.meetup.com/909

The Monday afternoon meeting in Woodbridge is at the Starbucks next to Yarn Barn -- and you can get 25% off yarn if you bring your Starbucks receipt over to Yarn Barn after S'nB.

The front page of our Yahoo group has links to all the other groups I know about in Connecticut.

Thanks for that info, Karen!

I may try and hook up with the group that meets in Bethel.

Happy knitting!

Hi,

I'm in Monroe. (my husband is from New Canaan; my IL's still live there, Linda. We actually do know a Linda in New Canaan) I just took my first knitting class a few nights ago at All About Art in Monroe. I was supposed to wait until next month for the next Beginner class to finish my project, but I finished my scarf overnight and learned how to bind it off here. Now I've also taught myself how to cast on here, and have started another scarf. This is a great website for learning!

I will have to check out the yarn shop in Bethel. The other women in my knitting class were actually discussing the Southbury yarn shop, and how rude the owner is there, so I won't be going there. She must be quite a character, lol. I did go to Stratford yesterday, there is a really nice shop there. I bought $60.00 of yarn, really soft and pretty. That should make 4 scarves.

There are lots of replies in the Connecticut thread you started back on 01-01-2007: http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting...ad.php?t=50865.

If you're looking for a knitting group, I link to all the ones I know of on the front page of the S'nB New Haven Yahoo Group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/SnB_NewHaven.
