Knitmap is now available for Android. Now it's easier than ever to find your local yarn store!
I have a podcast called Craftlit (Craftlit.blogspot.com) for people who work with their hands but love books.
Well, since I like dark, hardwood floor, intimate kinda yarn stores I dig it. I also like the enormous amount of natural light--it's a converted house so there's way more windows than a usual LYS. It's also one of the only places in town where you can get some spinning supplies. Lynn is very supportive of knitters (and spinners) and the community at large. It's my fave favorite in Tucson.
My first time in was lackluster. The place felt clicqueish and no improvement on Purls (which was really bad on that count) which it had replaced. Their selection is definitely...serving the local clientele. They're not too up on the online world--knit-alongs, knitting blogs, podcasts--so there's only so much help they can offer, but since my first visit I've been in again a few times and it's definitely grown on me.
