about LambShoppe on Mon Jun 09 06:52:45 -0500 2008

I received the most genuine and warmest welcome I have EVER received in any shop(yarn or other type)in my entire life while visiting this shop on vacation. The shop is gorgeous and set up well and I was welcome to sit and knit to my hearts content. This shop deserves a visit and your business. I would be a "regular" if I lived in Denver.

about Lambspun of Colorado on Mon Jun 09 07:05:43 -0500 2008

This shop has good inventory spread out amongst many rooms. The staff was helpful but not clingy. While I did not make a purchase on this visit, I would visit again if in the area. I am sure I would use this as a local resource if I lived in the area.

about My Sister Knits on Mon Jun 09 07:00:46 -0500 2008

I drove up for a visit while vacationing in Boulder. The carriage house location is quite charming. The entry level is a bit unappealing, but the upstairs is lovely. A nice selection of quality yarns and very nice, genuinely friendly staff. I would not hesitate to drive up there again when in the area.

about My Sister Knits on Thu Jan 15 15:21:56 -0600 2009

Visited this shop again two weeks ago and lucked into a sale. Snagged a gorgeous skein of Handmaiden Sea Silk and a couple other goodies. Very charming place and everyone is so nice and helpful. Great yarn selection!

about What's Needling U on Tue Sep 09 20:10:35 -0500 2008

I stopped by this shop on a recent visit to the Vail area. The owner was extremely nice. The shop is very neat and well organized. They have a good selection of yarns-many brands I am not familiar with. While I only made a small purchase this trip, I wouldn't hesitate to stop in at this shop next time I am in Frisco. I felt very welcome and would have sat and knit awhile if there had been time for that, but I had to get back on the road.

about A Knitted Peace on Wed Apr 02 10:59:56 -0500 2008

I stopped by this shop in Old Town Littleton recently and enjoyed my visit. I would say that they have a good selection and are very, very friendly. One of the nicer yarn shops I visited while in the area. Cute shops in the area to also peruse while there. I will go back next time I am in Boulder/Denver.

about A Knitted Peace on Sat Aug 16 16:41:16 -0500 2008

I enjoyed visiting this shop again on my most recent visit to the Boulder area. It is a bit of a haul from B. but I find it worth it every time! I found a number of good patterns there, one of which I am in the middle of knitting right now(sweater). I also picked up some fabulous Alpaca, for a song, from their sale bin and just have to felt the bag I knit from it a bit before I do the "finishing" stuff. I'll go by again when I am there just after Labor Day. You should try to visit if you are in the area!

about Maverick Fiber Arts on Wed Apr 02 11:11:09 -0500 2008

I recently visited this very, very small shop. The selection was more budget oriented than I prefer, but the owner is super nice.

about Woolen Treasures on Mon Jun 09 06:55:57 -0500 2008

I visited this shop on a recent vacation and enjoyed a look around. A smallish, well organized selection, and a friendly shop. Good button selection.

about The Yarn Studio on Tue Sep 09 20:16:00 -0500 2008

I recently visited this cozy shop while visiting the Vail area. The owner is high energy and I bet loads of fun too. I enjoyed looking around this jam packed shop. I liked the selection of yarns and there were several nice knitted "demos" to inspire. If I hadn't had such a tight schedule, I would have knit with the locals for a while. The patrons were very friendly and welcoming as well.

about Knitch on Fri Sep 21 17:40:22 -0500 2007

THE best yarn shop in Atlanta. If you only have time to hit one shop, this is the one not to miss. Very, very customer service oriented, beautiful space, knowledgeable staff, gorgeous yarns, awesome owner.

about Upstairs Studio on Fri Sep 21 18:07:49 -0500 2007

Nice folks!!! Focus is on spinning, but they have some beautiful handspun and other fibers that you won't find anywhere else. Great selection of fibers on cones. Prices are very, very fair. Off the path for a visit to Houston, but a wonderful resource for the Bay Area. I'll go back the next time I am in the Bay Area of Houston.

about Yarntopia on Fri Sep 21 18:00:09 -0500 2007

One of the better yarn stores in the greater Houston Texas area. Worth the drive out there.

about Nancy's Knits on Fri Sep 21 18:19:29 -0500 2007

Stuffed with yarn--a mix of medium to low end yarns with several quality yarns sprinkled in. You can find something new here. Owner is nice. Shop needs better lighting a little more streamlined/organization. I'd go back again if I had the time while visiting Houston.

about Nimblefingers on Fri Sep 21 18:03:03 -0500 2007

Great yarn selection and a cozy space full of inspiration. People very nice. Good location. The best of all yarn shops in the Houston area. You won't be disappointed!

about Knit Knack, LLC. on Wed Apr 02 11:17:03 -0500 2008

On a recent trip I made an effort to visit this Old Town Arvada shop while in the Boulder area. I was plesantly surprised by the look and feel of the shop in comparison to other yarn shops in the general area. Based on this I was anticipating seeing a large selection of quality yarns (I had my wallet at the ready!), but was disappointed to find a mediocre offering with limited stock. Coupled with a chilly reception at best, I would be inclined to visit other shops in the area first.

about Knit Knack, LLC. on Thu Jan 15 15:36:02 -0600 2009

Was in the area two weeks ago so I stopped in.I received a much friendlier reception this time, but for some reason the place still just leaves me flat. No real inspiration and nothing I haven't seen in a lot of shops. Don't mean to be unkind, others may have a different experience. Check it out for yourself...

about Purl Knit Cafe on Sat Aug 16 16:24:13 -0500 2008

I visit Boulder regularly and am so very pleased to find this shop! Kim, the owner, is super, super nice and she has created a very welcoming, friendly place. I stopped in to knit for a while a couple times on my last trip and had the best time. Each time there were other knitters there as well, all having a nice time. There are several tables and individual, cushy seating as well. I felt the yarn selection was of very high quality. I particularly enjoyed sipping on a cup of tea whilst I knit away. I'm going to be a regular there whenever I am in the area! There is a great fabric shop a couple doors down too if you have a bag you want to line or a tote to sew.

about Purl Knit Cafe on Tue Sep 09 20:19:48 -0500 2008

Went by again during the Labor Day holiday and really enjoyed myself! This shop is a nice addition to Boulder and I cannot say enough about how nice Kim and her patrons are. I snagged several quality yarns, a delish salad and some lovely oolong tea. I'll be back again and again!

about Purl Knit Cafe on Thu Jan 15 15:15:25 -0600 2009

Totally my hang out when in Boulder--like two weeks ago and this week again. I snagged several good yarns at the sale two weeks ago(like I need more yarn)and I especially love the Grace hand-dyed. Tried the organic ice cream for the first time and it is delicious! Run to this cozy, welcoming shop for some knitting fun and friendship.

about In the Making: A Knit Shop on Sun Sep 13 01:10:40 -0500 2009

I stopped in this shop a few weeks ago on the way home from a trip and really loved it! Super selection of quality yarns and knitting related items. I purchased several things. I will make a point to stop in again if I am passing through Birmingham. Wonderful shop and all were very friendly. Cute gift shop next door The Nesting Place and a great cafe for lunch Eat Your Colors. Starbucks too and many children oriented shops in this small shopping center.

about Stash Knitting on Sun Sep 13 01:17:42 -0500 2009

I visited this shop a few weeks ago on a trip to Memphis. Everyone was very friendly and offered help right away. Lots of Rowan yarns. Everything is in a bit of a jumble though.

about Destin Yarn Shop on Sun Sep 13 01:24:15 -0500 2009

I visited this shop over the Labor Day holiday and had a good look around. Very friendly place, neat and very well organized. The yarn selection wasn't really my thing, but I am sure it is geared towards the warmer climate knitter. If I had my knitting with me I am sure I would have been welcomed to sit and knit a bit. I would visit this shop again if I am visiting Destin.

about Shuttles, Spindles, and Skeins on Sun Sep 13 01:34:57 -0500 2009

The more I visit this shop, the more I like it. I have found the staff to be very helpful. I think everyone there is just very down to earth and real which could very well be misinterpreted as disinterest, but they really are nice folks there. The yarn selection, patterns, books, etc, are extensive.

about Maverick Fiber Arts on Sun Sep 13 01:37:09 -0500 2009

I went by again about three months ago and was much more impressed with the yarn selection. I bought several things. I hear they have a new location now--a very good idea!
