Lots of great Yarn and knitting essentials-- but the cat needs to move home. The entire store has a disgusting odor - who wants to knit something and have it smell like a litter box? The store is wonderful - but I won't return due to the odor.

I, too, am allergic to cats. I have never had a bit of problem going into Knit On, and I have a tendency to be in there for quite a while. Great shop. Knowledgeable staff. Yes, it is a little tight, which means you are literally surrounded by yarn, making it a true immersion of fiber.

410creations you need to get over yourself. This is a lovely yarn shop and cats have evry right to exist

Unfortunately I won't be able to visit since I am crazy allergic to cats. I inherited bad allergies. Can't even use yarn from shops with cats. Makes me sad since I am an avid knitter and love to support LYS, especially the one closest to my house. I don't understand why shop owners don't have compassion or the business sense to understand folks like me. I didn't ask to wheeze, cry and itch around products from their business. Guess she doesn't need the customers. I have talked to A LOT of other local knitters who are in the same allergy boat and can't patronize this business.

Great selection of yarns! Lots of Cascade, Manos del Uruguay, Noro, Plymouth, SWTC, and many, many more. Nice sized store. Great selection of needles and notions. The lady who was working (I think she was the owner) was very nice and helpful. I had mentioned that I had seen that they had a resident cat, so she found her for us so my husband could bond with the kitty and have something to do while I petted the yarns. ;) Reasonable prices. I would go back if in the area. :)

The new store is MUCH better. The staff are, on average, friendly and helpful. If you're allergic to cats, though, don't go! The resident kitty is huge and friendly, but she sheds a lot (the employees do regularly sweep to get the cat hair, but there's only so much they can do). The prices are pretty good, and they have a decent selection of both luxury and workaday yarns.

it was my pleasure to sit with Karen for a lesson. her enthusiasm and patience were so encouraging. the store is charming and keeps calling me back. i am impressed with the great selection of beautiful wools and yarns. it's a long drive from new york but, i've caught the fever and i'll find my way there again. thanks Karen-i love my hat. i lost your card.

This is one of the largest shops I've visited and they do have a good selection. They also have several knitted project on display - makes you want to buy the yard & pattern.

My GPS gave directions through several neighborhoods, so it took some time to find the shop. I was in the area for a reunion, so I'm sure there is a faster way to find this shop.

When my sister & I entered the shop the clerk did not acknowledge us, we greeted her. She never asked if we needed help, was this our first time in the store, she did not say a word to us - not even good bye or come again. This young ladies attitude would not make a difference on my visiting the shop if I lived in the area, but it might to others. I do drive this portion of I-75 on my wait north, but will not stop at this shop, due to distance from I-75 & the very unfriendly clerk.

This great little store has moved to Monmouth Street in Newport Kentucky.
Much more space!

`I love this store. i took my first lesson there a year ago. I love the selection of yarns. I am a alpaca person. Great service and the resident kitty, Tanner, is a big plus. She gives the shop a cozy homey feel.


by Penny on Sunday, Jun 21 2009 at 07:56PM CDT

I agree that this is the best store in the area, due to their large selection. It is difficult to move around in the tight quarters and I have left occasionally rather than try to get around other customers. The resident cat is NOT a plus for me - the huge animal is always blocking a pathway. The service is better than most area stores, though on my last visit I got "checked on" numerous times while in the back room (I believe they had recently been experiencing a theft problem), and ended up leaving my intended purchases sitting at the register unpurchased after waiting for 15 minutes while the staff person engaged in conversation with a non-customer, with me all the while in her line of sight. that experience makes me not want to go back, but this is the best selection in the area and I know I'll go there again some time.

I believe this was the first yarn store in the area I visited. I really like this shop, though it is a bit crowded. Filled to the brim with yarn! There are two separate rooms and the back room is the one with all the sock and baby yarns if that's what you're looking for. The staff is friendly and helpful. One of my favorites, though I don't go there much since I live on the northern side of Cincinnati.

Love this shop! Took my first knitting lesson there 3 years ago and haven't stopped since! So glad they are within 2 miles of my workplace...makes for VERY nice lunch hours! The staff is knowledgable, friendly and the store has a great yarn selection. Quality, unique yarns, not the Joann/Michael's stuff, though they do have some of that, too, if that's what you like. And there's a resident kitty--what more could you ask for in a knitting store?


by HiddenTohru on Monday, Oct 06 2008 at 02:16PM CDT

Very tiny! Cute, and the lady who was there was nice, although they didn't have the specific yarn I wanted (but there was plenty of other great stuff). Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area!

Cramped store filled to the brim with every yarn imaginable. It's part of my annual pilgrimage to Cincinnati. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly, the yarn selection so tempting that I always leave with a full bag.
