Found this charming store on a short walk from my hotel-Lovely small store with some exclusively dyed yarn available as well as the popular companies-I was just looking for some vacation yarn (you know it doesn't count as stash) but there were some gems there as well as a nice assortment of needles and many books-I was greeted right away and then left to my own to look around.Don't pass it up

Very disappointing! Wide open and a nice seating area. Yarns ok, nice selection of books and magazines. But I was there for more than 20 minutes, took off my coat, sat and looked at books, checked out yarns, and until I put on my coat to leave was not even acknowledge. Then she said hello and asked if I was looking for anything. At that point, NO!

Disappointed. Shop was cozy enough, but a little too warm and smelled like way too much incense. Knitters are usually very sensory sensitive people with touch and also smell, so I did not see the point in making the yarn smell like it had come from the pipe shop. No prices on anything, which was very annoying. Owner said this was done for the customers convenience as having to change our prices was too time-consuming it would have to be done twice year when prices increased. She did have a nice selection of buttons. Average price for a skein of yarn was about $50.

I am planning to visit yarn stores in Boston mid October and have chosen the three that are more or less downtown and accessible by transit. I am curious to see if the selection has improved by October. Afterall, it's the busy season up to year end.

The staff wasn't unfriendly, but ignored me after saying hello, although there were no other customers. The yarn selection was very limited and there was a sad little table of fabric. It felt like a shop that couldn't afford to order inventory.

Shop was small, but service was great. White walls and floor-to-ceiling shelves of yarn with one table/half-dozen chairs near window in the back of the shop. Not as much yarn as I thought there would be for a LYS in the city, but an interesting variety of high-end skeins, and the prices on the shop-exclusive DIPS yarns seemed about average (with the other skeins) to me. No prices were listed anywhere, but staff was friendly and helpful there.

I was visiting from Chicago and made a point to stop at this shop before I went back home. The woman working at the shop didn't acknowledge me when I walked in. She was busy consulting another customer at the time, so I let it go. But after that customer left and I was the only one left in the store, she still didn't acknowledge my presence. Not a "hello" not a "can I help you?" The shop is very small and the selection of yarn was disappointing. I would neither go back to this store nor recommend it to a fellow knitter.

The service is fantastic. And even if I did not find any color/yarn that I wanted to have, the owner was extremely helpful and friendly.

Small and overpriced. None of the prices were marked either on the yarn itself or the shelves holding the yarn. Limited selection of yarn books, which were all well-thumbed and in some cases, damaged.

The owner is one of the most pleasant people I've met. She's always willing to find a brand or resource for you & she's very conscious of prices, not too high, but unfortunately no discounts. Luxory yarns only & some books & patterns.
