about Portland Fiber Gallery & Weaving Studio on Wed Jul 28 01:23:49 -0500 2010

Note to handknitters, this store caters mostly to weavers and spinners. One could certainly use some of their yarns to knit with but the selection in that category is not very large.

about KnitWit Yarn Shop on Wed Jul 28 01:26:43 -0500 2010

A really lovely shop, with an excellent selection of yarns in a range of weights. I think they are the only store to sell the new wools from Maine-based Quince & Co--very nice yarn at reasonable prices in a very wide palette and a range of weights. Staff is very personable, really takes the time to help and listens patiently to yarn prattle.

about Central Yarn Shops on Wed Jul 28 01:29:48 -0500 2010

A smallish selection of yarns but with some good solid stock (Lamb's Pride, sock yarns, Berrocco) but a truly giant wall of buttons. Outside of Manhattan's garment district it would be hard to find such a massive and varied collection. Cardigan knitters will delighted.

about Korner Knitters on Thu Jul 29 13:43:50 -0500 2010

Such a friendly store. They really take time with you if you want it and completely leave you alone if you don't. My favorite atmosphere. The selection is large and it was mostly yarns I had never seen before. A lot of yarns made with plant fibers or unusual blends, sock yarn, a lot of novelty yarns. They also have a wonderful, big room where the knitting classes meet that looked very inviting. There were some very nice knitting bags, some made by local artisans and a moderate selection of needles and accessories. They even took the time recommend other yarn stores in the area--the mark of a kind and confident shop. Worth a stop.

about The Stitching Mantis on Thu Jul 29 22:36:32 -0500 2010

Very nice place. Jam packed with yarn as well as other needle craft materials. Very good selection and prices.
