about Island Knits on Tue Aug 25 22:45:02 +0000 2009

I visited Island Knits while on vacation, and thought it was ADORABLE. The shop was well kept and organized decently. I found some yarns here that I have not seen anywhere else including a yarn spun of Sugar Cane (which came home with me)! The woman working was very pleasant and not overbearing at all. If we ever come back to the Myrtle Beach area, I will most certainly stop back!

Our GPS took us on a bit of a goosechase.... but we managed to figure it out quickly! They have a "Husband" couch and snacks, however my Boyfriend opted to walk around the store with me and help me feel all the yarn. The fun thing about going to new stores in towns away from home is the variety you can't always find near you. Picked up some Wendy Bamboo sock weight (in the Capricorn colorway, its 75% Bamboo and 25% Nylon if I recall), and some Fingering Weight that is made of.... Milk!
The owners of the store were so nice and to helpful, it made me wish this was my LYS! The selection was fantastic! I was a little puzzled by how some of the yarns were organized, but all-in-all pretty pleasant to explore!
If I find myself back in the area, I will definitely go again!

I personally did not go to this store. HOWEVER, my boyfriend was in Anchorage on business, so I sent HIM into the store. He had a good experience, the woman who owned the store pointed him in the direction of Local dyers and fibers. He came home with a skein of local hand-dyed, and a luxurious skein of Qiviut! I am pleased with what he came home with, and if he goes back next year, I will certainly send him on another trip into the store!

I had a great experience @ this store. There were so many great yarns to touch! They had some selection of yarns that I can't get in stores near me, which is always great. Didn't see much in the way of indie dyed, but no one is perfect. They have so many great sample knits around the store! Found a sample for a spiral shawl/scarf, but they were out of the pattern. Which they special ordered for me! They even called me to let me know it had arrived! I will be going back to this store again when we are in town visiting family!
