Hi all--I just wanted to report back a little on knitch...
parking wasn't an issue but it also wasn't easy--I found a nearby spot along St. Charles.
The shop is actually on St. Charles but you walk around to the back of the little area of shops on St. Charles--there is a sign directing you but if you turn left onto St. Charles from N. Highland, you might not see it--I didn't. Coming from the other direction it is easier since they have a sign on the end of the building. When you go around back they have a cute fence and gate that you go through to enter the shop.
I loved the shop and the owner and went ahead and told her we were coming. I found out it's her birthday that day. She said if our party got bigger than 5 or so to call and let her know--Right now I think we have 5 people coming at last count.
The only complaints I have (which aren't her fault..will explain further down) is that she doesn't carry Blue Sky Alpaca or Rowan yarns but that is b/c those two companies don't want to saturate an area and they say she is too close to the other yarn store that does (Why Knot Knit--it's 8.8 miles away but probably 20-30 minutes away with traffic). She is working with those two companies to get them to understand that 8.8 miles in Atlanta isn't really that close when you factor in traffic. I loved the decor, the music, the yarns and everything. I spent quite a bit of time talking with the owner--she's quite nice.
I've very excited about us all meeting there--any more thoughts about food? I'm up for anything but don't want to go to a great expense. I didn't think to ask if snacks are okay--it appears that she serves coffee upon request in her store--water too.
