Just wondering if there's anyone in Asheville NC that likes to knit and would like to get a group together.

I know there are lots of knitters in NC but it seems none in your area or mine. I live in Bethel, NC and there doesn't seem to be any knitters near me either. Hopefully you'll find someone near you.

Hi! I'm in Hendersonville, but I don't get up to Asheville as often as I'd like to. There is a guild in Asheville, but I don't know much about it. They meet once a month at a church on Sweeten Creek Rd, but that's about all I know.

Yarns to Dye For, in H'ville, has an informal get-together every Tuesday from 10 to 2, where anyone can drop in and knit. It's a very friendly group, but the time and place may be too inconvenient for you.

I live near Shelby and have not run across any knitters here either. Lots of crocheters though.

Tarheel, if you haven't already, you MUST go by Yarn Paradise in Biltmore Village

I'm a Georgia girl who was up there a couple of years ago for a "leaf trip". Wonderful yarn and needle selection. The ladies there are super help and especially patient with newbies, which I was at the time. They had Koigu galore---ahhhh---wish their shop was closer. No, on second thought, it's probably best that they're not right around the corner--I'd be broke for sure.

Anyway, go by or give them a call--I'm sure they have info on knitting groups or individuals to contact there.

If our re-location plans come to fruition- you can bet that I will chair a group that so wants to get together.

As I greatly doubt that I will open another store, a knitting group would certainly be a priority.

When I looked in the Asheville phone book I was surprised to see more knitting stores than Knoxville- surprised, because of the population differences.

Hopefully I'll meet you all in the not-to-distant future! KL

There is a really neat shop in Charlotte, Baskets of Yarn, and on the 1st of 3rd Wednesdays of every month from 6pm-9pm they have "Knit Night." Just bring your yarn and socialize with others. If you have a problem there is always someone that will help you out. If you need a project you can get help with that too! Great yarns and great prices!!
