We made our first pilgrimage to this wonderful shop and were so delighted by all their yarn. Took my son's girlfriend with me, he is a beginner knitter and they made he feel so welcome and really helped her work on yarn for a sweater and hat. I shopped for some sock yarn, they have a fantastic selection of local hand dyed All so yummy it was hard to pick, but I did, got some yarn for my Cameo shawl. Looking forward to casting on as soon as I finish the socks on my needles (just need 2 more inches and toe box). Looking forward to going back many more times!!!

Not cool for beginners. The new shop is cute (though very poorly air conditioned) and there is a good selection of nice yarn...BUT Lovely Yarn does not practice what it preaches and does not cater to beginner knitters. I followed the advice of Lovely Yarn owner and instructors and took 3 different knit classes (basic, hat, sock). I was told at each class to drop in anytime for assistance if I got stuck on a project. It took quite a car ride for me to "drop in" but I thought it would be worth it to get additional help because as a rank beginner I was easily and repeatedly stuck. It was late in the day when I arrived and store owner was brusque in her manner, initially she tried to assist but quickly became frustrated with me and told me I needed help with the basics and to sign up for another class! Ok..... I did and was again reassured that any time I was stuck to just pop in and I'd get lots of friendly help. Well I thought maybe the poor response l received the last time I dropped in was just a bad day/time so I dropped in a second time for help. Again I have to take quite a car trip to reach Lovely Yarn. After minimal assistance I was yet again brushed off by the owner Sue, and again instructed to "take another class". Lovely Yarn is NOT lovely by my standards. You know it is really not cool for the owner to repeatedly tell beginner knitters who pay $$ to take classes at Lovely Yarn to "drop in anytime for help" if you aren't going to stand behind that commitment. I was truly inconvenienced and disappointed by Lovely Yarn's false advertisement of helpfulness. I've signed up for knitting classes at close by Woolworks and won't be back to Lovely Yarn. Lovely Yarn has created itself some bad yarn karma.

Just visited Lovelyarns for the first time recently, and I fell in love. As I'll be moving back to the area soon, I know this will end up being my favourite yarn shop - it's just so warm and inviting and stocked with great things!

This is such a great yarn shop! Good selection and atmosphere. The owner's really cool; there was this coupon the store newsletter sent out that I wasn't able to print so I emailed Sue and she sent me another one!

After moving to Maryland, it was frustrating not being able to find a truly open, warm, loving yarn shop - so many seemed stuffy and uninviting. Then a total stranger watching me knit in a bookstore struck up a conversation with me and told me about this' amazing new yarn store in Hampden'. I was there that weekend and never left! Other yarn stores take note: Sue caters to the 'working women/man knitter' by being open on SAturday and Sunday and classes are on the weekends, NOT on a Thursday at 1:00 in the afternoon... HELLO,,,, we all work these days.
Thank you Sue

I love this store! Sue is super friendly and the yarn is gorgeous. Its a very welcoming shop where you just want plop on the couch to sit and knit.

I love this place. She has a really beautiful selection of yarns that aren't too expensive. And the mother bear project is so cute!

Sue is the best yarn shop owner ever and the atmosphere in her shop is so wonderful. They were just recently voted "Best Knitting Shop" by Baltimore Magazine. Definitely worth checking out!
