Hi y'all (again, 2 in one day!)

I am into knitting and crocheting but I am still very inexperienced and think a class for either (both?) would be excellent.

Anyone know of affordable sources for classes? I live on the N.W. side of town (Smyrna) and would be willing to drive 15-20ish miles if the price is right. Any ideas?

Thanks!
Deanna

Knitch in Virginia-Highlands is awesome. www.knitchshop.com
Good luck. Knitting is a great "zen" hobby.

Cool. Thank you for all the suggestions!
I think I may start with JoAnn first and see if I need more help. It's just cheaper!

And I like the idea of making our own class! Too bad I have absolutely NO time to organize anything

Knitch no longer has a store in Virginia Highlands - too bad, because it was such a fun, welcoming place.

Cast-on Cottage is OK - they seem more geared to the experienced knitter, though.

My new favorite knitting shop is Lovin' Knit on at Paper Mill and Johnson Ferry in East Cobb. It is a small shop, but very, very friendly and the ladies seem eager to help knitters of all skill levels. I took an evening class last year and it was perfect!
