Eek. Didn’t recognise my emoji... stitch markers have bikes on them.

Outstanding LYS. Fabulous selection of local and international yarns. Many are small production hand-dyed. Of course I spent way more than I’d intended, but with such an amazing selection - it was hard not to add to my stash. Also they had really cool stitch markers with 🚲 on them..... very Amsterdam.
Perfect balance of helpful service, not at all pushy and I was able to browse in my own time and without any pressure to purchase.
Got a free project bag which was the icing on the cake.
Highly highly recommend.

Love, love, love this shop! Highly recommended. Visited in June or July 2016, just before they moved to the new location. "Penelope" (Malia) was there and very helpful. She was also wearing a great Stephen West shawl (Welty) that I loved so much that I bought the yarn and pattern right then and there and spent the rest of my vacation working on it... now I have a lovely little shawl complete with wonderful built-in memories.

On Google maps it seems like there is a Tatto-place there - is that the house?
Google took these pictures in 2010, it seems, so I was wondering if it will look different, or if I'm looking at the wrong house?

I visited the shop a few weeks ago with my friend who lives in Amsterdam.

We were so impressed with the range of yarns and pattern books.

The shop has such a lovely calm atmosphere. The charming young woman who helped us was I think the owner.

I bought a skein of scarlet Malabrigo sock yarn which I had been unable to find in London. My plan is to knit a Hitchiker with it(another one!)

I will visit the shop again for certain on my next visit.

I wish you every success.

I tried and tried and couldn't find your store when I was there in August. Boy, how I wished I had found you.

What a great little shop! Very refreshing compared to the rest Amsterdam has to offer. The young woman (for once no cranky old ladies) who runs it is lovely and helpful. I felt at home instantly, sat down with a cup of tea and started knitting. A nice collection of yarn and pattern books. Definitely worth visiting!

Cute, cute, cute store! In a great area in Amsterdam, offering a good array of products (including Malabrigo, Skein, and a pretty selection of locally dyed yarn) not just yarn. Super friendly, and helpful staff. Definitely worth a visit, and, if you have the time, sit down and knit a spell.

Lots of great new yarn you won't find anywhere else in Amsterdam. Always friendly service and a great knit night on most Thursday evenings. (Check the website for the exception. I think it's the second Thursday in the month.) A beautiful store in a great location.

I went there yesteday evening, expecting them to be closed, but it was Knit night! what a lovely bunch of people working on the beautiful projects. I told them I was there because I left my knitting in a taxi, and they all instantly felt my pain. i bought new needles, and yarn, and now I'm happy. Lovely shop, run by a lovely young woman, lots of yarn, books and needles. If I'm still around on Thursday, I might go back for Knit night.

Of course, I rate my own shop highly :) But, come down yourself and rate it on your own!
