Atlanta Knitting Guild has a new affiliate: Eat Sleep Knit. Erin was at our meeting this month, and I'm sure everyone made her feel very welcome. Those of us in Cobb County know this as the "secret" shop with weird hours in the industrial park. Erin has primarily built this as an online business, hence the peculiar location. She has chosen to specialize in hand-dyed and hand-painted yarns. And if Eat Sleep Knit carries a particular yarn brand, she carries that yarn in a full range of weights and colors.
It is also nice that Eat Sleep Knit has joined at this particular moment. This Wednesday the 9th, Eat Sleep Knit will be hosting Claudia McLean of Claudia Hand Painted Yarns from noon until 2 PM. Claudia will be bringing a trunk show of multicolored knitted goodness. Now is also a good time to mention that there is a Shawl the Love contest sponsored by Claudia Hand Painted Yarns. Information on categories and prizes is available here.
Here are the directions:
Eat Sleep Knit
1600 Wilson Way SE Suite 9
Smyrna GA 30082
Take I-285 to Exit 15 and go north on South Cobb Drive.
Get over in the left lane immediately.
At the first light, turn left on to Highlands Parkway.
Staying in the right lane, drive about a mile.
Turn right on to Wilson Way SE. (This is after you pass the lake on the left.)
Drive to the "end" of the street -- it is a really weird loopy not-quite cul de sac. You can pause at the end of the road to get your bearings.
The 1600 building will be ahead of you and slightly to the right. (If straight ahead is twelve o'clock and directly to the right is three o'clock, this building is at about one o'clock.)
Suite numbers ascend left to right.
If you have a GPS device, the front door is N33° 50.006′ W084° 30.492′. (My Garmin was okay with the address until I got on to Wilson Way SE.)
