I'm sure if I could get together with other knitters in my area we could all benefit from getting together every so often. At least I know I would benefit from it.
I just found your post because I haven't been on KH for a long time. I am in Knoxville and have recently picked up my knitting needles again. I know of two yarn shops: Loopville in Bearden and Yarn Haven on Cedar Bluff Rd. The only other choices are JoAnn's, Hobby Lobby, Michael's, etc. If you're still new at knitting, I would stick with the cheaper yarns--I'm speaking from experience. I have a small fortune tied up in expensive yarns that are still in my closet because I am not advanced enough to make the garments.
Anyway, give me a shout back when you read this. I would love to meet some new knitters in Knoxville.
