about Knit 1 Bead 2 on Thu Jul 02 17:56:46 -0500 2009

This cozy little store is filled with gorgeous yarns and inspiring samples, all arranged by color families and lit to maximum advantage. They have a limited but still lovely selection of spinning fiber, and a corner filled with a small treasure trove of beads and beading supplies. The top-notch yarns are pricy, but not any more than they would be elsewhere, and there are some good, less-expensive yarns (like Sockotta!) as well.
The owner was pleasant and helpful without being overly aggressive in her salesmanship.
All together, shopping here was a positive experience and I look forward to an opportunity to go back!

This shop was small by virtue of being an old house, and in daylight the lighting is very good. The selection was good if a little on the pricey side, and they had some unique items that made the extra cost worthwhile. The employee working at the time I visited was not overly helpful, but I prefer a "self-guided" approach to yarn shopping, so this was not a problem.

This is an amazing yarn store. Their yarns range from practical and hard-wearing to total splurges, and the color selection is excellent. The staff were knowledgeable and helpful, and knew just when to jump in with a suggestion. I was very impressed that because I didn't have time to stay and have all my yarn wound at the time of purchase, they wound one skein to get me started and invited me to come back to do the rest!

This shop is conveniently located in Glendale's downtown area and has an impressive selection of all types of novelty yarns. The owner is very helpful and friendly, and they have a terrific selection of knitting accessories.
