There used to be a terrific yarn shop in Olney; anybody know if it's still there?

"sewnhair", you might check the yellow pages when you get to Gaithersburg or ask a local.

That used to be my old stamping ground, but I wasn't knitting when I lived in Damascus, more's the pity!

I grew up in Damascus. Home was actually near Butlers' Orchard. It's a small world.

There are many wonderful shops - widely scattered over the area - but here is a list:
http://knitting.about.com/od/maryland/Maryland_Yarn_Stores_Yarn_Shops_in_Maryland.htm
If you're going to "google" yarn stores, narrow the search to Montgomery County, MD.

Annapolis in a good hour drive from Gaithersburg and Baltimore is about an hour in the other direction.

As for stores close to Gaithersburg, So Original in Olney is good. It's my favorite LYS right now. Lana, the owner, is AWESOME!!! And she has alot of yarn to play with.

Then there is another yarn store in Wheaton, MD called The Yarn Spot. They're okay. The owner is pretty cool, but I didn't get that "welcome!!" feeling from her.

Then there is Woolwinders in King Farm... Like Cyndi said, they are PRICEY!!!!

Going further towards DC, there is another shop in Bethesda, MD. The name of the store is Knit and Stitch = Bliss. Right on Wisconsin Ave. Never been there though. Bethesda=expensive!!

The only yarn store I know of in DC is called Stitch DC. They're located in Tenley Town (Right on the Red line) at 4000 Albemarle St NW.

Hope this helps. When are you coming? There's a few of us in Montgomery County that meet together one Sunday a month. Maybe you could join us?

Hey sewnhair,

A group of Maryland KP women are meeting Sunday Feb 19th at 2PM in the "Panerra" in Kentlands, Gaithersburg, MD. We have just begun meeting but would welcome a west coastie anytime!

Your posts don't indicate when you're in town but just thought I'd hang it out there for you!! Safe travel, btw.

Love and Happy Knitting,


Lala

Thank You to everyone!!! So sweet to be invited to get meet with other KPers. I never did get a chance to go to any LYS in either Gaithersburg, or DC; but did have fantastic visit s with our dear friends & their family. I've decided to order some nice yarn as a sort of souvenir of the trip.

Thanks again for all your info, and invites!!! Maybe next time?!?!?!
