About Ava

I've been knitting for the past eight years and share my love of the craft with my sister, Lola, on our blog . . . and yes, these aren't our real names.

about Mountain Knits & Pearls on Sat May 09 07:01:23 -0500 2009

Good god . . . It's my hometown knitshop (one where I teach and knit) I haven't rated it. Can't say enough nice things about the shop or Joanne. The shop has one of the best selections of Cascade 220 that I've seen, several types of sock yarn, as well as an extensive supply of Debbie Bliss and Dalegarn yarns. There are many different varieties of more specialized yarns - just want to soak myself in the Jojoland Cashmere - and needles galore. The classroom is well lit, but it's a little hard to concentrate when I am staring at more yarn . . . that and the good conversations going on. Sit and Knits are Tuesday evenings from 6:30 - 8:30 and Thursday mornings from 10:00 to noon.

about The Knitter's Edge on Sat May 09 16:43:35 -0500 2009

Just got back from a trip to The Knitter's Edge. What a nice little store! My husband was impressed with the repurposing of an old bank, and the selection was rather nice. I haven't been able to find Galway for some time (to finish an old project), and they carry a find selection of it. It seems like they are adding more yarn and have an extensive supply of Plymouth, including their specialty yarns. If I'm in the area, I'll pop in again.

about Tucker Yarn Shop on Sat May 09 16:46:16 -0500 2009

If you haven't been to Tucker's, it is worth a the trip. The ratings might seem a bit odd, but their selection is a mix of the quirky and yarn that hasn't been produced in the last two decades. My sister and I found yarn that we're pretty sure predated her, and it made one of the most beautifully weird purse ever. Don't go looking for the latest yarns . . . but you'll be amazed at what you will find!
