Central Flordia is VERY VERY LYS deprived. There is one in Celebration...I have never been to ... sort of by Disney and there is one that just moved to Maitland called Sip and Knit ... about 30 min east of Orlando ... my first lys experience and a bad one :(. Maybe someone else in this area knows of a secret LYS in central FL for you to visit . I hope so!!

Last summer I went to 3 on the west coast that were great and there are a few on the east coast.

I havent' been over that way in ages, so do call them before you head over to make sure their addresses are correct and such.

If you happen to make it over to Tampa area, let me know and I'll give you my faves! It's about an hour, hour-1/2 away from Orlando area. Enjoy your trip!

Black Sheep has some knitting yarn but is mostly a needlepoint store. The ladies there are very nice, and Park Ave in Winter Park is a really great place to shop and lunch.

http://www.sipandknit.com/ has moved to Maitland, I have not been to their new store

If several FL/GA or even snowbird knitters are going to be here it would be really fun to get together!!!!

Rebecca,
I'm in SW FL rather than Central FL, but if you run across a Craft Depot it might be worth it for you to go in and look around. I know the one around here has lots more of a selection than any Michael's or Joann's I've ever been in.
Have a lovely trip and smooch your sweet hubby LOTS.
My DH would prefer sleeping on a bed of nails for the whole vacation rather than set foot in a LYS. :rofling:
