I sure am! I'm still a student at U of L, so my knitting time is sadly short. Just out of curiosity, know of any other yarn shops in town besides the Knit Nook on Bardstown?

Hells yes!  There are about 4 or 5 great knitting stores in Louisville.  They all seem to carry different kinds of yarns though, so you'll just have to go to all of them. Smiley

Besides the Knit Nook on Bardstown that you mentioned, I've also discovered these yarn stores:

Sophie's Yarn Shoppe on S. English Station in Middletown area (behind CVS across from Lake Forest entrance).  It is, in a word, phenomenal.  If you haven't been here yet, you really should go.  It just opened not long ago and every time I go in there they've got more and more yarn in stock.  It's about six times the size of Knit Nook.  They also put on a weekly get together on Wednesday nights for younger knitters.  Good times!

Carma Needlecraft on Lyndon Lane in Lyndon area.  It's a bit bigger than the Knit Nook.  Small but good selection.  Weird hours though.  They carry embroidery thread as well as yarn.  Oh, and they have Addi Turbos.

Handknitters, Ltd is off of Shelbyville Road in the Middletown area.  I'm not sure what road it's on but it is right behind the Ben Franklin crafts on Shelbyville Road.  This yarn store is great.  They have a great selection of yarn, buttons and knitting books/periodicals. 

Dee's Crafts is off of Shelbyville Road across from Mall St. Matthews.  They just started carrying yarn and every time I go in there, there's more stock.  Again, great selection of yarn.


God, I love Louisville. Smiley

Hi peeps. I was diagnosed w. cancer earlier this year and started doing Sublime Stitching when I was recovering over the summer. I just picked it up again last week and want to do more and more, but I tend to totally throw myself into something hardcore for a week or so, then let it fall by the wayside. I love silkscreen (but haven't done it in AGES), stencil, cut+paste/xerox, etc. I also want to learn how to sew. Anyways, HI!

hola 502-ites!

my current craftings revolve around crochet and baking. (does baking count?)

i would like to learn to knit.

i got a sewing machine that i'm slowly learning to use, though i still don't know how to make something from a pattern. 

i like to scrapbook, though i haven't done much of that in a while. it indulges my obsession with paper products.

i also like random stuff like...making trivets out of corks.

i like to embellish, decorate, and reuse.

favorite materials: paper, anything sparkly or shiny, and glitter.

on deck for me craftwise: making a bag for the knit/crochet bag swap and painting an old suitcase i got at a junk shop.

"But why don't you scream now?" Alice asked, holding her hands ready to put over her ears again.

"Why, I've done all the screaming already," said the Queen. "What would be the good of having it all over again?"
