Okay, so this isn't in Charlotte or Concord, but I fell in LOVE with a yarn shop today.  I am pretty faithful to Charlotte Yarn and go there for every question and shred of yarn that has been knit in the last 2 months.  BUT, I went to the Fuzzy Mabel today and am FLOORED!!! She had AWESOME prices and a HUGE selection.  If you are hankering for a road trip, or just adore really great yarn- this is a great spot.  Just take 485 to Johnston Road S and take it to the sunset.  This will turn into 521 and will literally take you straight to Fuzzy Mabel.  It is just like following the Yellow Brick Road (or perhaps the Yellow Alpaca Trail).  She has an entire clearance corner.  She mentioned that she is online too.  Good luck.  FYI- she is closed on Sunday and Monday. 
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Left Handed Knitters?? on: July 07, 2009 07:04:19 AM
Hey there,

I am new to knitting, like 3 weeks new.  I have been learning quickly though.  I have some dumb questions and would like some advice.  First of all, I am left handed, which has made learning to knit sort of a pain.  My MIL is a lefty too so she showed me by holding everything in my right hand and transferring to my left hand.  Of course this made learning easier.  However this also made it nearly impossible to use tutorials for anything because I have to reverse everything around in my head.    Are there any actual left handed tutorials out there? Continental knit is not my thing, as it is still right handed.

Lastly, I have a stupid ?? but I can't find it (probably because it is such a no-brainer) but is a slip stitch just slipping the loop to the other needle without working it?

I was just reading about these last night in Sewing Green.  Any idea on the next one?

I am on ravelry and just found out that there is a knit/crotchet circle at Amelies on either Tuesdays or Wednesday nights from like 6:30 until. Amelies (for those who aren't familiar) is a great, no AWESOME, little French bakery in the NoDa (North Davidson) area of Charlotte.  It is outside of Uptown and open 24/7.  There are actually quite a few knit/crotchet groups that meet around Charlotte from what I am learning.  PM me if you are interested in more times and meet-ups. 

There is the Rainy Day Creations that does a sit and knit in Pineville.  I am sure that after the summer, some of the libraries will pick up their knit groups again.  I know Main Library and Mint Hill both have knit groups.

Yeah, there are various groups but they are either underground, or exclusive for a certain group of friends or something.  I have heard of the Charlotte Craft Mafia and there was a knitting circle called Chicks with Sticks.  There is a really cool event in December in the Plaza-Midwood/Central area of town called Christmas in the 'Hood and I think that some of the vendors are in the Craft Mafia. 
Anyway, it would be cool to get something going.  I am really into indie craft, embroidery, knitting, and antique furniture.  I just started knitting so a needlecraft circle would be awesome.  I have asked the local library about using the space for this in the fall.  I will post back if they open it up. 

Hopefully we can come up with something one afternoon.  I would be cool with coming to the University area or NoDa if we could figure it out.

Is anyone doing a JEM stitch??? I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to see one completed.  I may start one at a later time, but with two boys, I am stuck with He-Man and Star Wars.
