Knitters Nest, located in Eldersburg, Maryland, is a new (summer 2007) yarn store in Carroll County. There is a great selection of basic and specialty yarns for all types fiber enthusiasts. The environment is very inviting and cozy and the owner, Deborah, is very attentive and helpful. You’ll be able to find all the materials you need for a new project or stock up on some new yarns that you’ve been wanting to try like bamboo.

Knitters Nest offers classes and open knitting and spinning times each month. Tea is offered every Tuesday from 11am-2pm, you’re welcome to come chat with other crafters and work on your own project and instructors are on hand to help answer questions. There is a monthly knitting circle on the third Thursday of the month from 7pm-9pm and a monthly Spinning circle on the second Sunday from 1pm-4pm.

Alex and I attended a Tuesday Tea and was welcomed warmly by all of the other ladies. I was happy to see they we’re so receptive to a non-knitting/crochet crafter and it was great sharing my project (fiber hair falls) with them. The classes looked very interesting, especially the class on making felted clogs, and I look forward to taking one in the near future. I picked up some new 100% wool yarns (the wool selection at Joanns was pretty sad) that I plan to make into a new set of hair falls.

I’d recommend visiting whether you’re in the area or want to make a special trip. Make a day of it and visit the beading store, Two Busy Beads, conveniently located next door or visit the Second Floor Scapbook store at 32 &26.
