about Les Pelotes de Pénélope on Tue Nov 13 11:36:57 -0600 2018

I stumbled across this shop while running errands and decided to go in. Small, but well-stocked for its size, this shop carries a number of commercial brands. They had Anny Blatt, Bouton d'Or, Fonty, and Katia. Everything was neatly and invitingly arranged.

They happened to be out of a yarn I was looking for, but the salesperson told me when they were expecting more in (within a few days) and also pointed out something similar that I could substitute if I wanted. I decided on the substitute, as I wanted to get started right away.

When I checked out, the salesperson also invited me to sign-up for their fidelity program. The service was warm and personable.

I will certainly return to this shop if there is something from their brands I want.

Stopped in twice in the span of a few days while in the area visiting family. The shop is clean and well organized by yarn weight. There is a definite emphasis on natural fiber yarns and tons of knitted samples to spur your creative juices. I bought some Shibui yarn, but noticed a huge variety of brands.

On both visits, there were knitters using the ample seating to chat and work on projects.
I will definitely go back when I am in the area again.
