I am new to the forum also and I am from Spivey's Corner, NC...The Hollerin' Capital of the World!! So excited to know I have "neighbors" basicly (Dunn) that love to knit. I also give almost all of the things I make away for gifts. I think people really appreciate the time that goes into making a special gift...at least I hope so, brings me joy any way.My sister (Molly Mabel on Ravelry) is the only person I know that enjoys knitting as much as I do but she is not as much of a "yarn junkie" as me...beads for jewelry making but not yarn. I probably have more unfinished projects that anyone on this website. I just get so excited when I get new yarn that I have to start a project while in the car if someone else is driving.lol Great to meet you all and am enjoying the posts and beautiful work created by my fellow knitters/crocheters.:)

I have shopped at A Row of Purls in Fayetteville (used to be at Stedman and gone to their knit night). They are very nice and so helpful. Inventory doesnt change that often but she normally posts on ravelry when new products come in and has many special events like trunk shows for new yarn or times to exhibit your FO. If you join their group on ravelry you'll get the "yarn" updates.I have to go to UNC way too often for doctor's visits and love a knit shop in Chapel Hill called Great Yarns. They have a sister store near the RBC in Raleigh called Yarns, Etc. I really love those stores alot.A unique shop in Cary as well...I havent tried spinning or dyeing yarn yet but have actually been "investigating" spinning lately and would love to try spinning with just a simple drop spindle I think it's called.

i am so impressed! I have never tried anything like that..looks great.does the dye stay during wash etc? im jealous you're getting a drop spindle! jk i want to find someone with some sheep so i can get something to use a spindle for..ideas?do you work outside the home or are you a stay at home mom? I have ms and spend much time on bedrest due to pain and fatigue but i would love to maybe go to lunch sometime since we r so close and talk "knitting" and of course brag on our "babies"! My babies r Jordan 19, Alex 15 on April 1, and Sierra 13.not really babies but i still refer to them as such!
