About cavande

I'm primarily a knitter though I have started crocheting lace and doing broomstick lace. I self-identify as a lace-addicted knitter.
I have a rigid heddle loom (in the attic) and the small weave-it and weavette looms.
I love looking for local yarns while on vacation.

about Wildflower Yarns & Knitwear on Sun May 16 22:46:55 -0500 2010

This is a great shop. The owner is very helpful. The selection of yarns is impressive. She has a large selection of knitting books (but is no longer ordering any new ones). She has a large selection of individual patterns from big companies and small designers. An impressive selection of needles. All around great shop.

about The Wicked Stitch on Fri Jun 04 20:50:10 -0500 2010

I tried to go to this store when I was traveling through KS. I checked the web-site to make sure that it would be open before driving over. I was excited as they said they had spinning supplies which the Manhattan store does not carry. When we got to the store, there was a note on the door stating that it was closed and had been closed for 3 days in a row. I understand that businesses have to close but this information should have been put on their web-site so that I didn't waste time driving over there. This is the 2nd time my mother has tried to visit the store and been unable to due to a surprise closing.

This is a nice place. If you have time, they have a huge back room full of weaving looms to teach classes.
They have roving & spinning wheels.
They have quite a bit of weaving yarn. I'd say this was primarily a weaving store.
They have a good selection of locally made and/or dyed yarns. Quite a bit of the Navajo Churro yarn. Some wool from Colorado and dyed locally. There is also mohair and alpaca.
The brand name lines are fibernatura and berroco yarns.

It's a nice little store that helps support local weavers. They also have big floor looms for sale. Also, some woven rugs and other items for sale.

about Knitmap iPhone Updates on Wed May 18 01:31:23 -0500 2011

Thanks for the iPhone app! I use it quite a bit.
My one complaint is that if you leave the app (such as clicking on the website link) and go back to it, the app seems to hang for a minute and then it resets itself. It would be nice to be able to reopen it and pick up where you left off. Especially if you have pulled up several yarn stores and had hopped out to look at one of their websites. Having to wait for the app to reset and then redoing your search is frustrating.

But thanks for making the app!!
