Virginia Knitters


#21

Hi, gingerbread. Your name is perfect for this time of year!!


#22

:waving:Hey everybody! I knew there were quite a few Virginians here!


#23

Coming home today from the doctors, I was behind a car and the plate read “Kn1ttr” :p.
I was a little dumb struck and almost follow the car. So if it is anyone here on KH Hi to ya.:waving::waving:
Yup it is a good name for this time of year, funny thing is I don’t really like gingerbread:ick:
:roflhard::roflhard::roflhard:


#24

I am also in Franklin! I’ve heard that the library has a knitting group Thurs. nights - I’m going this afternoon to ask about it.


#25

I am in Fredericksburg!! Actually, I have a Fred addy, but I live in Spotsy.

You Stafford gals should come down to the Knitter’s Cottage on William St in downtown on Tuesday nights from 7-9–Knit Night:) Bunch of crazy knitters get together, to eat and knit:thumbsup:


#26

Oh my yes I have been to the knitters cottage. I was very new to knitting and they were very helpful to me. I just might go knowing that some of the people are from this board. I really don’t drive at night in the winter. Never was good at it to much snow up in Mass. Which I love that it doesn’t snow that much down here. I hope to go down there after Christmas now. With all my new Christmas money.:woohoo:


#27

I just discovered a new LYS in Tabb, VA. That’s in York County. It’s name, appropriately enough, is The Yarn Shop. I think it has bveen there a little over a year.?

And if any of y’all go to Williamsburg, be sure to visit the Knitting Sisters. Wonderful place with tons of gorgeous yarn.


#28

I’m in the Winchester area.


#29

Glad to know you bcj1050.

vaknitter, RunningMommy, chie96, and MamaMer, I’ve added you all to my friends list on Ravelry. I had already added the other Virginia knitters who are there. MamaMer, I don’t know how, but when I typed in MamaMer in the people search on Ravelry, it sent me to your profile. How do it know???


#31

The Knitting Sister is great! I absolutely love every one there and they have such gorgeous yarn.
You know what I live literally 5 min away from the Yarn Shop and have never been. Is it any good? The owner scared me in her last shop so I have avoided it.


#32

I’m in Suburbiaville in Chesterfield County. I agree with you F-burg area people, though, that the Knitting Cottage is darling! I’ve only been once, but I will definitely go back. The owner (Nancy??) could not have been more welcoming.


#33

Welcome truble2301 Great to see you here.
I agree the Knitting Cottage is a great place.
To much going on right now in my life to get down there. It is on my wish list to get there.:roflhard:


#34

Holly, what do you mean she scared you? She wasn’t there when I went in. A gentleman I believe to be her husband maybe was the only person working. It is not a large shop, but they had a lot of good stuff there.


#35

Hi all! I’m in the Greater Richmond area!! I have a few friends that knit and we try to get out in public at least once every other month and knit, eat and gossip. :slight_smile:


#36

I’m down in the Pulaski area but visit richmond regularly to pester parents :slight_smile:


#37

That is weird! I am on there, but I haven’t had time to put much up there right now. After Christmas is my goal:teehee: And it is even doubly weirder that I actually go by a different user name there! lol

Nancy is right! She is a sweet lady, everyone there is so helpful–it is where I learned to knit:inlove:


#38

Just thought I would introduce myself. I’m also from Virginia - Danville, which is in the south-central area just above the NC border.

Glad to meet everyone!


#39

I t was strange to see your name!! My dgds call me Nana, too.


#40

Julie - I am also Nana to 2 granddaughters.

Everyone - Here in Danville there are no good yarn shops. I have been to a couple in Greensboro, NC, but tell me of more. Those of you in or near Richmond, Roanoke or Lynchburg - any good ones there?

I did hear there are good ones in Charlottesville.

I travel to Norfolk quite often as my son lives there so do you know of any in that area? I did find some on Mapmuse but wonder what you think of them.

Thanks!
