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.
