There was a celebrity spotted hanging around in the West Asheville/Enka/Candler area end of town the other day. This famous figure is well known for always having a pair of sticks in hand – but it appears he may be trading in his money makers for some knitting needles. Artimus Pyle, the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame Drummer for Lynyrd Skynyrd was at Western North Carolina’s largest yarn store yesterday, yarn in hand.
Friends & Fiberworks located at 19 Westridge Market Place in Candler (formerly of the Biltmore Square Mall) mentions that Artimus has been in the store before. Friends & Fiberworks offers classes in everything from knitting, weaving, needle felting, and anything you can imagine having to do with yarn and fiber crafting. Although we aren’t sure what Mr. Pyle’s background in fiber arts is, I am sure we will see him around again.
