about Green Valley Weavers Supply on Sat Mar 07 09:58:58 -0600 2009

Only got to stop by for a short time - but it was nice. They had some yarns I had not seen at other LYS.

about Knitter's Kove on Sat Mar 07 10:10:07 -0600 2009

Fun little shop! Lots of great yarn.

about Maverick Fiber Arts on Sat Mar 07 09:50:10 -0600 2009

Mew Mews is a cute fun shop! I love to go in and look around often finding something. Sue is a great help! I am a knitter and decided to take her crochet class on a whim. It started the evening I just happened by the store & she just let me join the group. It was great!

about Woolen Treasures on Sat Mar 07 09:48:13 -0600 2009

I made a special trip to this YS for something different and found a great store. It's quite cozy and the owner was very helpful.

about Beach Knitting on Sat Mar 07 09:45:53 -0600 2009

I went to LA for work and search all over for a yarn shop in the area. I found this one and it was great! The women at the store helped me locate some great sock yarn. I'll definitely be back when I'm in the area.

about The Slipt Stitch on Sat Mar 07 10:24:26 -0600 2009

Visited this shop while in LA for work. It was lovely! Great yarn - I knit one of my favorite hats from their yarn :)

about Table Rock Llamas on Sat Mar 07 09:57:06 -0600 2009

It took a bit to locate this shop, but once there it was worth it! Large selection of yarn in a cozy atmosphere.

about Purl Knit Cafe on Sat Mar 07 10:26:09 -0600 2009

Cute little shop & cafe. Great tea. Some nice yarns that LYS don't carry. Not too much on the book selection, but not a big deal.

about A Stitch in Time Needlework on Sun May 03 14:10:42 -0500 2009

This was a cute store! The people were very friendly.
There was not much to choose from for yarn, but what they had was very nice. There was a lot more wrt needlepoint and fun gifts. I'll be visiting when I'm out that way again :)

about All About Yarn on Sun May 03 14:11:53 -0500 2009

This was a cozy little store! Quite a few fun yarns and lots of Debbie Bliss. I'll be back when I return to the area.

about Showers of Flowers on Sun May 03 14:15:40 -0500 2009

This shop had lots to see... There were actually knitted flowers.
I sort of felt like I had stepped back in time though.
I probably won't be going back. It just wasn't my type of yarn store...

about All That Yarn on Wed Sep 09 17:08:43 -0500 2009

Such a great find on our way home to CO from SD! Nice selections, including some local yarns, which I can't wait to use. I got some handspun from a local provider and some llama made in WY as well.
(she also had beading and embroidery)

about Knitmap iPhone Updates on Wed Sep 09 17:58:55 -0500 2009

Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work on all mobile devices...my kindle does not seem to be able to view the frames once I hit search. I still love the site on my computer though!

about The Yarn Center on Tue Nov 24 17:26:14 -0600 2009

Nice store with some great Mountain Colors finds. The staff were very nice and helpful. The store seemed to carry a lot of acrylic blends which just is not my thing.

about The Fiber House on Tue Nov 24 17:42:13 -0600 2009

This shop was a great find! I could have spent the day just looking and feeling the yarns. The staff was very knowledgeable and there were a few people just sitting around the shop table knitting. Every corner had something in it that added to the coziness of the shop.

I will be coming back when we drive through again.

about Bobbin's Nest Studio on Tue Nov 24 17:49:41 -0600 2009

If I ever opened a shop this would be it! They had all kinds of knitting and sewing items. They did not have a pattern in stock that I really wanted, so they shipped it to me.

I found some great yarn from an Etsy dealer there in the shop - it was beautiful hand dyed yarn.

The store itself was laid out with a boutique feel that was just perfect with helpful staff to boot :)

about Green Planet Yarn on Tue Nov 24 17:52:32 -0600 2009

This was a nice find. I found some yarns that I have not be able to find elsewhere. I really liked how there were little jars of yarns with needles everywhere to try out the yarn selection.
