Single downtown storefront Local Yarn Shop. Not huge. Reasonable variety of quality yarns. No spinning equipment or supplies that I saw. Friendly personnel. I arrived sweaty and wearing workout clothes, directly off my bike, not looking like a typical yarn-fiend. They were nice and asked me if I was looking for anything in particular. I did find some unusual yarns, but mostly national LYS brands. (Quality yarn, but not rare.)

There is a table to sit around and knit. The store is generally well organized and bright.

This is a great place for sock yarn. Occasionally they also have great sales even on the nice stuff. Everyone has always been friendly enough to me (in that awkward knitterly way).
I wonder if they have a theft problem in downtown Evanston, as I have gotten some suspicious looks carrying a large purse.

ok I went to this place twice and two years removed. Each time they were as rude as they knew hoe to be. I hate to write a poor review about a yarn shop. This one was awful. Do not waste your time

Somewhat cramped but a nice selection, and I scored some awesome finds in the sale bin. Service was OK. This is a nice place to browse, especially if you are not claustrophobic.
