about All Points Yarn on Sat Sep 17 02:49:03 -0700 2011

Wonderful shop! Great service and selection.

about Grinny Possum Fiber Arts on Sat Sep 17 04:40:00 -0700 2011

This store has been my home-away-from-home. Ann taught me to knit and I've not stopped since. It's the kind of LYS where you always feel welcome to sit and knit or crochet. If there's anything you don't see on the shelf they will special-order it. Wonderful store!

about Lil Weasel on Wed Nov 30 21:47:47 -0800 2011

Wonderful woman who knows what she's doing. Very warm and inviting shop. Be sure to stop in when you're in Paris. Go up rue St Denis from rue Turbigo and the Passage du Grand Cerf is on the left. The Passage is through a big doorway. Don't look for an actual small street like I did. Lil Weasel is just a little way down the passage on the left.

She has some books in English as well as in French. Also lots of fabric there.

What's the new address? They're listed as "Clarkville, KY" instead of "Clarksville, TN" and on the map they're popping up in downtown Louisville. :-D

about Lovin' Knit Studio on Sat May 05 04:48:33 -0700 2012

Loved this shop and YES, it's very crochet-friendly. (Especially Janice, she's a crochet goddess!) In town visiting a friend and stopped by this shop. They were very welcoming, which is even more important to a male knitter. I felt like I had come home. A yarn shop should be like an embassy, to steal a line from Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, and Lovin Knit fits perfectly. I spent some time knitting there and chatting with Karen and Janice. I can't remember the other folks' names but they were all very nice and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Nice selection of many yarns and a lot of great books and patterns. I asked for a particular needle and Karen went to a drawer and pulled it out in seconds. I've never seen a more organized way of keeping needles for customers! Be sure and check out Moxie's burgers across the street. They were really nice too.

Thanks for a great visit. I look forward to stopping by again.

about Lil Weasel on Sat May 05 04:55:19 -0700 2012

Just thought I'd add that a good yarn to buy for a souvenir at this shop is anything from Fonty. They are a French yarn company producing yarn in France. (I wanted yarn from France and didn't think there would really be any.) I'm very happy with it!

about Genuine Purl on Sat May 05 04:58:36 -0700 2012

Aw. I'm heading back home to Louisville from Atlanta on Sunday and hoped to stop by here. Can't be open all the time I guess. Catch you next time I'm in town!

about Needle Nook on Sun May 06 05:28:22 -0700 2012

I had a great time with Arline, the shop owner, and several other women in the shop. They did not flinch an eye to see two big ol'boys walk in with one small hispanic man looking at yarn together. They were attentive, politely inquisitive, and were very honored that we had found them on knit map and by recommendations at the SE Mens'Knitting Retreat. I found lots and lots of beautiful yarns in my favorite colorways but didn't splurge as much as I wanted to. Hope to go back tomorrow and rectify that. haha,

about This is Knit on Fri Oct 19 21:14:34 -0700 2012

Wonderful store with a warm, informed staff. They have a lovely sit-n-knit area upstairs and were very welcoming. I ended up buying a lot of yarn and having them ship it home to me in the USA. It was a lot cheaper to ship than I expected. They sent me over to Brook's Hotel one block away on a Thursday night for a terrific "stitch and bitch" group. If you're looking for an instant knitting family/community in Dublin, this is it!

Some of the yarns are the same as in the U.S. but many are local and unique. They have some yarns from a great local dyer as well as Irish yarn. Many patterns they have I've not seen anywhere else. They're in a small indoor mall and there's a great café just outside their door.

about The Knit Cafe on Sat Feb 09 15:23:51 -0800 2013

I felt no pressure to buy anything. (Not that I didn't buy something wonderful!) So nice to just sit and knit with local folks and learn about Toronto while sipping a very good latte. I met some nice knitters and got some great yarn. They even talked about other stores in the area I should visit. That's what I call class! So nice to find another shop where promoting knitting and fiber arts was important to them. Don't miss this place on your trip to Toronto. If I move to Toronto I may even try to find a place near here. haha.

about All Points Yarn on Wed Aug 28 02:56:37 -0700 2013

Definitely worth driving down to this shop if you're in Seattle. The owner is not only well-versed in hand knitting but is an avid machine knitter and designer too. This has become a go-to place for me when I visit the Seattle/Tacoma area.

about Romni Wools on Tue Dec 03 08:54:35 -0800 2013

Put this store on your bucket list! If you find yourself anywhere near Toronto, you have to check this place out at least once. Staff were helpful and friendly. They did not assume I didn't knit since I'm a man.

about Lettuce Knit on Tue Dec 03 09:02:06 -0800 2013

Loved this place! Staff were a LOT of fun. It felt like visiting old friends the first time I walked in the door.

about Loop on Fri Mar 21 22:25:30 -0700 2014

It was a rainy night and they were busy when I got there, but they made me feel very welcome and made sure I found what I needed. (Novermber 2012)

about Enchanted Yarn and Fiber on Fri Mar 21 22:27:02 -0700 2014

Can someone please fix this? Keeps popping up in Louisville map. QQ

about The Yarn Club, Inc. on Sat Sep 06 12:34:56 -0700 2014

Andrea, Terri, and Will greeted us and were very helpful without being pushy. We felt very welcome and were impressed with the great selection. The table had a lot of folks which is a good sign when they are welcoming as well. It's just what we want in a yarn store - an embassy of sorts where we feel right at home even 750 miles from our true homes. Glad we took the time to stop by during our Virginia Beach vacation.
