Jan 30th

Ok we finally sorted out the details (I think) for the Big Dubai / Abu Dhabi Knit Out

Who: The Desert Knitters & us the U-knitted Amiras!

When: Friday, January 30th

Where: Ibn Battuta Mall in Dubai at the Lime Tree Cafe

How: Maybe we can work out a Caravan from Abu Dhabi

Why: there's been talk of knitting, gabbing and fantastic cake!

Bonus: If you are joining in the February Lady Sweater KAL then we will be casting on as a group then!

I really hope everyone can make it because it will be a blast! and there's talk of some new knitters showing up! Oh the suspense!

Ladies, wondeful blog.
I'm new to the city, and very willing to knit.
I can not find needles and thread, preferably wool anywhere yet. Could you please advise if there is a shop for people who knit, and I also like to by beeds and strings, haven't seen them anywhere either.
Could you help me out with some addresses?

Are you a member of Ravelry? We have a group there called "UAE Knitters" and we have had a few discussions in the forums on where to buy yarn etc.

There is the Green Branch (they are in the phone book). They have a small selection which can get you started. If you come along on the 30th, Jennifer will be there and she also has some yarn and needles for sale.
