I'm over here in Douglasville/Dallas/Hiram area and would love to find a group or class that's a bit closer to home. Anyone know of any yarn shops around these parts?
My kids (preschool) both go to school near McEachern HS, so it's always a toss up if I run errands in Hiram or the Town Center area. The Hiram Michael's actually has a decent selection of basic yarns and you might want to check on classes there.
When you do decide to get out for a Saturday drive, I second the recommendation for Purly Gates on the Marietta Square. They are absolutely the nicest! Check their calendar, but now they are opening for one Sunday a month and also Thursday evening for knit nights. Hardly a snobby yarn store.
I'd love a morning knitting group (when my kids are in school) so I'm not cutting into family time with the knit nights. I'm already gone on Wednesday night for a graduate class I'm taking so I hate to be away two nights in a row.
