I just discover this group, only to find it long since quiet, no longer even kicking enough to stir up dust? Liven up, people!I've been living down here near Atlanta for almost a year, and have honestly not had a chance to get out and meet anyone, whatsoever. My fiance needs the van for work on weekdays, I have a not yet in school son, and health problems which leave me a bit limited on walking distance. And I am, quite frankly, starved for company at the moment. So I'm posting this here, as I have on meetup.com... Anybody wanna join me for coffee some morning? If you have kids not in school yet, bring 'em along, there's a playground right around the corner. And honestly, even if you don't, it'd be nice to get outside during some of the *better* days we've had lately. Last night, yuck it got wet out, but the day before was good.And other then that... Anybody know a place to get good yarn at a decent price? JoAnn's and HobbyLobby are a bit horrible for both price and quality, and I'm not sure where to find a decent yarn store.And yep, this annoying girl will be posting again, because I wanna see signs of life here!
On Sunday, October 22nd from 1:00-4:00 pm, three local knitting stores will stitch together to help in the aid of fighting breast cancer by knitting and crocheting 3,000 pink ribbons.
One of the stores is Only Ewe and Cotton Too in Alpharetta. Another is The Whole Nine Yarns in Woodstock. I don't know what the third one is. Both of these stores will have door prizes and other fun activities.
So I'm new to the area, and trying to find a SnB. I live in the Austell/South Cobb County area, but I'm certainly willing to drive a bit for a decent group.
I'm sure that I'm just not looking in the right spots but I really don't know where to look. I am seeking some sort of free daytime crafting class here in the Atlanta area. Knitting, crocheting, sewing, quilting ... any of those would be great, I would just like to know where to find them. I'm new, so I don't have the best resources yet. Thanks!
Hi there,I'm new to the crafting scene in Atlanta and thought that y'all could point me in the right direction.I have a basic question: where can I get a free, easy baby hat pattern (knitted or crocheted)? One of my husband's dear friends is having a baby girl in approximately 6 weeks and I would like to make a baby hat for her. I'm a real beginner at knitting, and would consider myself an advanced beginner/very early intermediate at crocheting. Any help/links/other advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you
I have noticed that this is being watch and has a few members... so lets start chatting!!! Hello, my name is Kirstie and I am a yarn whore. I currently live in Norcross but Noving to Covington June 1st. I have been knitting for a almost 1.5 years and moved to GA about a year ago. I currently attend the Saturday SnB in Norcorss at the Northernstar Coffee house from 2:30-5p or so. Where does everyone knit!?
This is the 2nd pair of socks I have finished, and I guess this could be consideder my own pattern. It is based off the sock pattern in the Fall 2005 Interweave Knits mag. I made these for my mom as House Socks, I even put hot glue on the bottoms to make them a bit more anti-slip. I knit them on US2 dpns out of hand dyed 100% Merino yarn (I bought from kbrece on ebay). I figure I am the only one who is going to post here for a bit so I thought I woudl share and give you all somethign more than LYSs to look at ^_^Happy knitting!~Kirstie
