I grew up in Hilliard, just outside Columbus. For the last 8 years I've lived in Raleigh, NC, but just moved back this weekend. In fact, the movers are unloading our stuff as I type. I'm at my mom's house catching up on the KH Forum!
I went weekly to a Stitch 'n Bitch in Raleigh that was held at Caribou Coffee on Thursday nights from 7:30-10:00 (at night). Raleigh's SnB locations meet weekly rather than monthly like most groups, so I've been a very lucky knitter! Before moving, I went to Yahoo Groups and looked up SnB groups in Columbus. I found two: one in Pickerington and one called SnB West in Grandview. The one in Grandview meets at Caribou Coffee, although the latest email said that tonight's meeting (7/11/06) would be at a conference room at the Hilltop Library on Hague Avenue. I can't make it, obviously, since I'm in the middle of moving. But, I'll probably try the next one in August. They meet once a month. I also found a "knitting moms" groups near Clintonville, but it looked defunct online.
I've been to The Yarn Shop at Kenny Center on Kenny Rd during one of my visits home and liked it. It'll be closest to where I live (Upper Arlington). I haven't been to the one in Pickerington, nor have I been to the Knitter's Mercantile. I've heard there's a shop in Dublin on High Street (the old Dublin area) and my mom says there's a small shop in my hometown of Hilliard. So, I'm sure that I'll be checking all of these out over this summer!! :inlove:
