I heard on Ravelry that there's a large Dalegarn/Dale of Norway Falk selection. :)

The service at this store is great. If it's not on hand, they will order it. Shipping is fast. :)

That's not a mac thing. The map is very specific. If the LYS does not actually exist in the boundaries of a city, it'll be under that smaller city/town/village name (hit show all cities).

**The contest incentive can be a bad thing. I've found entries that are probably pulled from an older website that are not accurate--as in, LYS is CLOSED--for my area. :(

The system thinks there are about 20 Colorados. :P

Click show all cities--there are random groups of COs on the list instead on one long one under CO.

Courteous staff is great. Those that care to talk with you and remember why you're there, what you've bought from them in the past, and don't simply turn away and chat with the 'in' crowd is the best.

One of my LYSs has a customer appreciation card - they keep track of how much you've spent on it and give you a $25 certificate reward when it's full!

'm also not so inclined to go back to a store where I walk in with a FO on and the staff doesn't remember me from a couple of weeks ago when I bought the yarn! I live near one of the biggest cities in the US, so if a place doesn't have anything special, I've got plenty of choices!.

Very pretty! I think this new opening page is great!

Check their website! They've now moved to a new, permanent home, in a retail area.
