about The Knitting Nest on Thu Mar 17 18:37:38 -0700 2011

Have ALWAYS had a good experience at this shop. The selection is smaller than some shops, but is well chosen. Along with the large selection of Cascade, there is a LOVELY selection of Malabrigo. The owner is always warm and welcoming, available for answering any question, and interested in customer projects. An EX-employee was less than warm at the old location, but this is no longer a problem. The seating is open and comfy and the natural lighting makes it a joy to stitch there. The shop's move to a larger storefront has only increased the welcoming atmosphere, and has increased the selection as well.

Having visited other yarn shops around the country, I would say that the size selection is on average with that size shop. The atmosphere is far better than most.
