i live in the dc metro area. i knit.i'll go ahead and give a shout out to stitch dc at 1071 wisconsin ave in georgetown. they're friendly and helpful. they even answered my question without selling me anything. just don't get the address wrong like i did, because you'll be walking like way far away from georgetown. and uphill no less.if this community gains interest, maybe we could set up a monthly knitting circle at a coffee shop or something. that'd be cool.
