South Bound and Down

Snowbird season is officially underway and I know a few of us will be making our annual pilgrimages down south here in the near future. Dan and I have our favorite landmarks along the way - the Farmers Market in Indy, the big picture of Colonial Sanders in Louisville, the Nickajack Dam in Tenneessee and of course the Big Peach and Peanut in Georgia. Perhaps not your usual list of must-sees, but they are certainly welcome sights after a few weeks of cold and rain. So for all the snow birds out there (and let's be honest that's at least 3/4 of our group :), I thought I'd post a couple of southbound area yarn shops. I actually haven't been to any of these but may try to hit one of them on the next trip down.

Indianapolis Area

Sheep Street -

Louisville Area

Sophie's Fine Yarn -

Happy Shopping!


  1. This is my favorite for the Georgia area.

    It's in Duluth which is where I'm at and they have stitch and bitch sessions in the store. Down side is that they're always on Friday's starting around 5, I believe. Which is when I get off of work. So not enough time to get the kids and hubby settled in at home and head out to the group before they close.

  2. I love that Picasso's Moon has a Knit and Bitch instead of a Stitch and Bitch. I guess crocheter's need not apply.

    Great list! We just may stop at one or two of these...
