about Romni Wools on Mon Sep 08 13:50:22 -0500 2008

If you're looking for something specific, and have a lot of time to spend, you can find just about anything at Romni. If you just need to dash in and out to find one thing, well, good luck. It's horrendously disorganized, which probably comes from having such a *huge* stock, and the 'shelves' (which are primarily plastic bins stacked on top of each other) are placed very close together - it can be hard to navigate, particularly if there's someone already in the aisle that you want to get down. I've also found that they move things around, so you may not find a particular yarn in the same place when you go back. Their shelf labelling (if you can call it that) system is dreadful - hand-written names and prices on pieces of masking tape stuck underneath (occasionally above) the bin of yarn. And occasionally there isn't a price there at all. I have had some very good service there over the years, but it's not my favourite shop by a long shot.

about Lettuce Knit on Mon Sep 08 13:46:12 -0500 2008

LK is a lovely little shop, and if you go in when they're not busy, I've found the staff to be very helpful. However, when they're busy (weekends in particular), I think they get a bit overwhelmed, which can make it feel rather cold and snobby. They have a fantastic selection of sock yarns, including Blue Moon Socks that Rock. Their selection of other yarn isn't extensive - it's a tiny little shop.

about The Purple Purl on Mon Sep 08 13:41:16 -0500 2008

I adore the Purl. Jen and Miko (the owners) are incredibly friendly, the Tuesday night Stitch & Bitch is an absolute blast, and their selection of yarn is reasonable for a smaller shop. They've got lots of sock yarn, a reasonable selection of laceweights, and offer amazing classes and workshops.
