about Needleworks, Inc. on Wed Jul 16 06:49:36 -0500 2008

The sock yarn selection is so large you can get lost in it. There is tons of seating, and the shop is huge.

about Klose Knit on Wed Jul 16 06:42:45 -0500 2008

huge assortment of needles, adorable shop, spinning fibers and classes, comfy, cozy, and a wonderful staff.

about Sweitzer's Countryside Fibers & Gifts on Tue Apr 28 14:00:40 -0500 2009

a great, funky store. She even carries spinning supplies! The owner and I had a long discussion about the pros and cons of circular needles, and helped me estimate yarn needed for a project.

about Uncommon Threads on Tue Apr 28 14:03:53 -0500 2009

A cute store, not much of a selection in crochet books or spinning supplies, but they have some of each. Lots of yarn, though.

about The Mannings Handweaving School and Supply Center on Tue Apr 28 14:08:29 -0500 2009

if they don't have it, it may not exist! This place is massive. Mostly focused on knitting and weaving, they also carry fiber for spinning, and have wheels for sale. The book section alone is the size of many yarn shops!

well worth the trip.

about Busy Hands on Sat May 16 19:34:00 -0500 2009

As a sock knitter, I have to say the sock yarn selection is limited to only a few brands. But there is a variety of interesting yarns of all kinds... including some very interesting recycled yarns I had never seen before.

A good basic shop! Very bright and happy. I will be going back.

Also sells potholder looms and loops for those.

about Spinning Loft on Mon Sep 14 13:31:02 -0500 2009

Although it's not a large shop, she seems to have everything! I really enjoyed stopping in and trying out wheels and talking looms.

about Knit A Round Yarn Shop on Mon Sep 14 13:35:57 -0500 2009

lots of classes offered, staff seemed helpful. There's yarn remenant bin - a concept I can't wrap my mind around, though it's handy for people like me who sometimes need scraps... And a large selection of needles for any budget.
