LUCY and her MIND'S EYE shop were fantastic: everything I could have every imagined in a yarn shop owner -- and I have known some great ones: six wonderful area yarn shop owners come to mind immediately: in NH the late Erly (designer & teacher) owner of the YARN & FIBER SHOP in Laconia; Marci (also a designer & teacher) and her wonderful husband! and fantastic staff at THE ELEGANT EWE in Concord; in Massachusetts Janet & Don of PUTTING ON THE KNITZ in West Newton. WOOLCOTT & COMPANY in Cambridge and WILD'n'WOOLLY in Lexington with their extemely knowledgeable and helpful owners are sadly also now part of the depleted local knitting scene. And now, alas, Lucy has sold THE MIND'S EYE, and I have been unable to force myself to make the trek to Cambridge to evaluate the "new" MIND'S EYE. Hopefully, someone braver than I will visit and evaluate it's current iteration soon. Knit On! jps

I knit a lot of socks and I love the sock yarn selection at this store! The owner also hand dyes some really great sock yarn.

I have just started spinning and there is a nice selection of up spun fiber too. The staff is also super friendly and helpful.

The owner is a sweet sweet woman, but she doesn't carry much in the way of worsted weights. If you knit socks this is the store for you.

The owner was so enthusiastic to help fine a suitable substitute yarn for one of my earliest projects. She did the math to find the yardage I'd need, then joyfully wound the undyed, 2-ply silk from the cone into a neat ball. She even advised me to knit from the outside and keep the yarn in a baggie to avoid snags. A great experience.

I love Lucy! Lucy is the owner of Mind's Eye and she is fabulous. She is always open to whatever crazy questions that you can come up with. Also, she really believes in her students and customers ability to learn and take on challenges. Very knowledgeable, great storyteller, and very witty. I love going there to get some of her hand-dyed yarn! Must visit in Porter Square, Cambridge, MA!
