Any knitters in New Mexico?
I always feel like I'm the only one here. I know there are others here in NM, but I never see them on any boards I go to, so I'm hoping there are some New Mexicans here that love to knit (or even crochet!) and might like to get together.

I'm here! Well unless the wind blows me away! I'm Angel and I live in Edgewood. What part of the state are you in? I knit and sew and do lots of other crafts. Welcome to the board.

Hi Angel, I'm Terri! I just asked hubby how far Edgewood was, and he said it's at least an hour from here. We live in Los Lunas.

No kidding about the wind - I'm so sick of it I could just puke!

I do a little bit of sewing, too (teaching myself that, too), but since I recently discovered knitting, I haven't done any sewing because I love knitting and am totally addicted. I'm still new to both, though. It's nice to meet someone from here!

Hi Angel and Azlynn,

My name is Deb (obviously). I used to live in New Mexico, Los Lunas, to be exact. Unless they've built something new, you have to go to Albuquerque for yarn. Whenever I wanted to crochet something, I bought it on the way home from work.

I don't remember any others, and I think that the Ben Franklin stores closed down. They didn't have much besides acrylics anyway.

As I recall, Village Wools was my favorite.

I'm not sure if B's is around any more and Village Wools moved to a really nice, big store over on Anaheim (just off of Paseo). We have a nice yarn store in Edgewood called Good Fibrations. I haven't been to Los Lunas in a long time. I do go into Albuquerque at least once a week. I know there are other NM people on here, we all seem to pop in at different times.

I haven't lived there for seven years, the wind and a lot of other things drove us out. Just remember how hard it was to find good yarn anywhere except Village Wools. Glad they got a newer, larger space, there were some really great people who worked there.

Hello all!

I just moved to Santa Fe in April, which is also when I learned to knit. There are a ton of great yarn shops around the plaza area. If you're in the neighborhood, you should check out Needle's Eye on Paseo De Peralta, or Oodles yarn & beads on Water Street.
