about The Knit Cafe on Sun Jan 20 06:35:36 -0600 2008

Overall my favorite yarn store in Toronto. Nice selection (koigu, malabrigo, fleece artist, etc. The staff is friendly.

about Romni Wools on Sun Jan 20 06:39:07 -0600 2008

Romni can be overwhelming and difficult to navigate because of the huge amount of yarn on every possible surface but the selection of yarn and needles is outstanding. A great place to hit if you want to buy a lot of yarn for a project.

about Lettuce Knit on Sun Jan 20 06:29:47 -0600 2008

LK has a wonderful selection but I find the staff a bit distant.

about The Purple Purl on Sun Jan 20 06:27:53 -0600 2008

I visited twice in January. They have a good selection and the owners were very friendly and helpful. I'll definitely be going back to restock the stash. They didn't have their cafe open yet but it should be soon.

I went once on my own and again with a friend. They do have some wonderful yarns (all their own line) and the prices weren't bad but I'm hesitant to shop there. For one, you can ONLY buy patterns with a kit. Second, the owner/LYSW told me that they don't have top-down patterns. I also have the impression that this store will never have a sale.
