Always trying to find a knitting group around me. I know there are some out there somewhere that aren't too far away.

I am in Palm Desert area, near Palm Springs. But I would be willing to drive up to maybe an hour away once a month or so to get together.

Woo hoo! There's a new LYS in Redlands called The Yarn Deli across the street from the post office and Walmart. New to me, anyway. It looks like they just opened last year, but I only heard about them last week. From the looks of their website, they seem to have a pretty good knitting group. And they have a free knitters night on Wednesdays! I'm going to try to check them out next week.

(I know there's another yarn shop in town but they permanently lost my business a couple of years ago.)

Hey Debi - I just read about this shop last night on another board and visited the shop's website today. Looks great! It's over an hour from me but I don't care. I'll have to check it out soon. :happydancing:

W/out naming names - the only other yarn shop I know of in Redlands is an overall needlearts shop a few doors down from a local quilt shop. I have to admit, I wasn't overly impressed the few times I visited. The Yarn Deli sounds like just the right shop at just the right time.

LYS in Redlands
Hi,
I have been going to the Yarn Deli since they opened in October. Their knitting group meets on Wednesday nights from 6-9 pm. It is a really nice friendly group. The owners are very welcoming and are generous with help. I often drop by to ask advice about something new I am trying.

I do enjoy going to the Enchanted Unicorn sometimes too. They are a little more rigid about what yarn you use while you're there, but the people who go to knit are nice too.

You really should try them out. I LOVE having people to sit with and talk while I knit. Sharing a cup of tea and a snack is pretty cool too.
Hope to see you there sometime.
Allison

That's good to hear. I've been in too many shops that had nice enough yarn, but really snooty employees. I'll try to get out there sometime this summer. Can't ever make the knitting nights, though. I don't do nights.

I've been in Enchanted Unicorn a few times, but didn't care for it. Different strokes, I guess.

I've been to Yarn Deli twice now. Both owners were there the first time and they were friendly and helpful - very un-snooty! I left with my first hank of Malabrigo, which I just had to buy so I could see what all the fuss was about. (Love it.) :D Now I have a few reasons to go back, one of which is to see how Becky's(?) needle-felted pizza purse turned out.
