What do I do in Atlanta?

I've got a class to teach in Atlanta all next week.

Are there any yarn shops I should visit while I'm there?

Anything else exciting I should make sure to do?

I live in Athens, which is rather close to Atlanta, but I don't know much about things to do there. I've heard Knitch is a good yarn shop.

Always glad to welcome visiting knitters! I absolutely recommend Knitch in the Virginia Highlands area. We have regular knit nights on Thursday and Friday until 8ish and Sunday all day (noon to 6 ish). The people are awesome and very supportive of us Guy Knitters. I also like Needle Nook which is near Emory University and has a knitting group on Wednesdays until 8ish. There are other shops in the Greater ATL area that I don't know personally. Where are you staying/teaching? Will you have a car? Public transportation is not one of our strong suits as a city.

Looking forward to meeting you!

I'll be driving and staying at a Hampton Inn across from GA Tech, but I'm teaching a law enforcement class near by. You'll have to show me the town then.

I'm seeing mixed reviews about knitch. Some people seem to think the staff is snobby.

KNITCH.

As an out of towner - my experience was delightful.
