about String Theory Yarn Co. on Tue Jan 08 17:01:39 -0600 2008

String Theory is a very nice shop located in downtown Glen Ellyn. They carry quite a bit of yarn, needles, accessories, and patterns. A friend and I drove out specifically to visit this shop and were not disappointed. Everyone there was very welcoming and helpful.

about Yarnify! on Fri Jan 18 20:12:58 -0600 2008

This is the ideal LYS. They carry a wide variety of yarn, patterns and accessories, but are also very friendly and helpful. Vicki and her staff treat you like friends every time you walk in. It's not unusual for knitters to come and just sit, knit and talk. Plus, they are located in the Loop. Their events and Friday gatherings are a lot of fun!

about KnitMap in the New Year! on Fri Jan 18 20:13:41 -0600 2008

I would like to be able to have a customizable/printable list of shops after entering the location. This would be helpful for traveling.

I think it would also be helpful to have a section in the details for the type of products (e.g. brand of yarn, accesories, etc), especially if they carry a hard-to-find brand.

about Red Sock Yarns on Wed Aug 10 22:48:46 -0500 2011

Lovely shop in Door County! I make sure that I stop in whenever I am in the area. They carry a wide variety of yarns & accessories, but not too much to be over the top. I always find something a little out of the ordinary that I cannot get at some of my LYS. The shop itself has a very chic setup, but also very inviting. It's spacious & even has a large table for knitting groups. Customer service is top notch. Friendly, helpful, and not obtrusive. In addition, they have the non-knitter section: comfy couches with non-knitting magazines. Your non-knitting significant other or friends can just relax while you shop. Red Sock Yarns is located in a great little shopping area, as well.

This shop closed around the Fall of 2013.

about La Maison Tricotée on Mon Jul 02 22:27:34 -0500 2018

Lovely little corner shop in the Le Plateau-Mont-Royal neighborhood in Montréal. The shop carries nicer, higher-end yarns. There are a lot of knitted samples to view. Also has a tea room and pastries. The staff was nice, welcoming, and helpful.
