Any Los Angeles area knitters?
I work in South Pasadena and live in L.A. (Echo Park). Anyone around these parts???

If so, what's your fave LYS? There seem to be a zillion and I am slowly visiting them all...

No one from L.A. or nearby? Really???

This is the only message I see from CA! I live in Sun City (in Riverside County) so I'm about 2 hours away from you - where are all our people?

There are several CA people and have been threads here. I'm not sure where they are now. I live in south Orange County. Let's see.. Aello, Pat in ca, Contiknitter Kelly, blueslady..and I know there are a bunch more.

If you want to just find a yarn store in your area go to Google Maps and type in Yarn and your zipcode. It's very cool!

Hi Laikabear:

I'm in La Crescenta, which isn't far from So. Pas. or Echo Park for that matter. I love getting over to So. Pas. Have you tried "Abuelita's"? She moved her shop across from "Heirloom" and now is on Mission St. near "Buster's". It's a nice shop with a nice selection of yarns. The shop owner's name is Samantha and is very helpful and friendly. There are other shops around the area too.

I don't "know" any other knitters except for the ones here on KH and Ravelry. It would be nice to get together with other knitters sometimes!

I just saw on Ravelry that they are full up. If you don't have reservations you might check first.

Hi there! I just moved to England from Pasadena...shame we didn't find one another sooner!

There are a couple of nice yarn shops in Pasadena. Skein on Walnut is fantastic as is Elegance Yarns at 1039 Green St. The owners of both stores are very helpful and are willing to order nearly anything you can't find. If you find yourself in WeHo, check out The Knit Cafe ( www.knitcafe.com ). That's the place I'd go if I won the lottery

If no luck finding a knitting buddy at any of the above mentioned, check out http://www.stitchnbitch.org/snb_groups.htm#ca to find the group nearest you.

Good luck!

I'm in Anaheim, Orange County. Velona's Needlecraft is a really good place and Rose is so helpful. She taught me how to knit in an hour. The Yarn Lady is another nice store with tons of classes going on everyday.
