While visiting the town I grew up in, I was surprised to see so many knitting shops. Its great. This shop probably ranked 3rd on my list, but was a friendly shop. It just didn't have as many unique yarns as I was looking for on this visit. Lots of current road construction nearby, but that will go away I'm sure.
I was born and lived my early childhood in Bloomington-Normal, so I was excited to learn there were several shops to choose from on my visit. This shop was not so bad. They had a lot of other crafts there. The lady who waiting on me was fairly knowledgable. All-in-all ok.
I was born in the area - and when I came visit I was excited to see several shops so close. This was perhaps my favorite shop - as they had a very great view, loads of samples and a lot of different yarn for me to choose from. I visited in the middle of the week, and found the 2 people to be extremely helpful, but they didn't hover, and they found several free patterns as well as pattern books for the yarn I was interested in. It made deciding what to buy very easy. I definately felt right at home and would enjoy coming back to knit with them if I visit again.
great store, fabulous selection and people who know what they are doing
