Fantastic service!
we wrote an article about Ekens Garn as it was such an inspiring meeting:

(it's in swedish though), it tells about the new owner Michael Sundin who always wanted to have a shop of his own. He is a great knitter by the way.

I got good tips on what to make, and bought patterns, yarn and all necessities.
I strongly recommend it!

This is a "Drops"/garnstudio heaven - and feels a bit on the old-fashioned yarnshop side. Many drops and baby patterns. Emphasis on cheap (acrylics can be found)... but great serive. Again, not where a yarn-collector spends time, but definitely filling a gap for the hospital nearby ;-) Im NOT a regular visitor here, so my rating is a bit shakey!
