I'm in Fayetteville, dh is stationed at Ft. Bragg. We've been here since May. I noticed someone mentioned Cary, my inlaws live in Apex and we're up that way about once a month.

I live in Winterville, NC- a small town outside of Greenville. I'm orginally from Morehead City though.

My dad is from Newport! (I've probably said that a million times already.) I'm from Trenton, between Kinston and New Bern. Now, I live in Rhode Island where it's cold and the tea isn't sweet.

 

Now, there are so many NC crocheters and I'm jealous that I can't hang out with y'all.

Hey Y'all finally someone from Down East! I live outside Beaufort, but lived in Newport for a while and LOVED it! I've been down here almost 10 years now. Just wish we had a real yarn store, although Coastal Crafts Plus in Atlantic Beach is expanding the yarn area and offering Knitting Lessons in the winter.

 

I used to go to Greenville every few months for the Neurologist for my kids. I know where Winterville is, in fact the company I work for (Boater's World) just opened a new store there.

I'm in the Weddington area, south of Charlotte. Katiern, we're practically neighbors! I'm orginally from Columbia, SC, but love the Charlotte area. I crochet and knit, but prefer crochet.

Isn't Coastal Crafts that place in Atlantic Station? I went there one time and was shocked at the prices on some of that fancy yarn. :eek It would cost a fortune to make a scarf out of some of that stuff!

 

Anyway- it's good to know that Down East is being represented here at C'ville too:)

Sorry Debra, missed this message. The ghan was pretty easy, just tedious. It starts with 8 points and ends with 32. The fill-ins to make the extra points are in the yellow rounds and each one has 8 ends to weave in!! That was the worst part for me (I hate weaving in ends). Well, that and the fact that it was so darn hot here when I was trying to finish it.

 

Thanks, I think he is too :P He's my Iraq baby :manyheart lol

Yes, the prices are very high! Of course, we're captive since we work down in the 'tent' at the end of the plaza (Outerbanks Outfitters); and it's the only place we can run at lunch. Walmart doesn't sell any 'fancy' yarn but fun fur.

YAY! Nice to meet you. You are now officially the second crocheter in Morehead that I know of (the first being my mom...)! I checked out your website. You are very talented!:clap

Wow, Lots of Carolinians! I'm from Yadkin county (about 45 mins west of Winston)

 

Good to see there are some near me, too (W/s, G'boro). Now I can say I 'know' someone who crochets. . . :cheer

My mom is originally from Bogue, but she's lived in Morehead for the past 30 years or so.

So did she grow up with all the bombing at Bogue field or was that after her time?

I don't remember... Is that coastal, piedmont, foothills or mountains?

It's Coastal.

I know this a little off topic, but I knew some people in high school (NCSSM) from Moyock and Coinjock (is that spelled right?).
