About skyewall

I have no problem selecting a age group but for some reason there is a gap in the selections...ranges go through 45 then next option is 50+. I'm in between :)

about Two Rivers Yarns on Sun Mar 11 03:14:17 -0500 2012

To be up front I've worked at Two Rivers Yarns since Sep-2011. This is a great local shop, very friendly staff and a wonderful selection of yarns. I went on a yarn crawl recently and was very disappointed in the shops visited because I expected to see as many options as Mary carries, but in a different selection.

Some information here isn't up to date and Ihave flagged Mary to address this. First is the web address...the shop is at www.tworiversyarns.com (don't forget those s') and second is shop open days and hours. Shop is open Wed-Sun, please refer to the web site for daily hours as well as lookiing for upcoming classes and events.

Mary puts out a monthly newsletter that you can send an e-mail to be added to the distribution list.

Love the shop and it will continue to be my preferred local knit shop even though I have moved on to another full-time employment opportunity.

From what I understand there has been a change (uncertain when) in offerings of this store. I travelled over an hour to reach it in Feb-2012 and was very dissapointed in the very limited selection. Mostly plymouth yarns which isn't my preferred choice so not much there for me. I did snag a large bottle of grapefruit no rinse wash for a great price and a colorway of Berroco Ultra Alpaca that suited my needs for a project.

about The Weaving Works on Sun Mar 11 03:28:02 -0500 2012

Was glad I made my guys stop by here to check this shop out while travelling. Bought some lovely weaving yarn (on cone) and after knitting it into a scarf this was beautiful. Once I washed it the yarn bloomed and softened it was a very pleasant transition (I was told it would but hadn't ever experienced it before). Loved the fiber selection for spinning too!
