about Loops, A Yarn Store on Fri Jun 26 13:35:37 -0500 2009

I love Loops! The first time I went in, I was completely bowled over by the selection. It is the kind of yarn you want to roll around in :) I was intimidated because I was an inexperienced knitter with a small budget. What a shock when that didn't matter to the staff. They were just as interested in helping me find my one or two special skeins as they were in helping the lady buying an afghan worth. The staff are wonderful--technically savvy and with good taste and great humor. They are very happy to help with suggestions and substitutions. I love that they allow me to browse in peace, but check every now and then to see if I need any help.

This store is difficult to shop in. Tables running the length of the store are great for people who come in to knit or for class, but are prohibitive to someone wanting to actually see the merchandise (on the yarn side). This is exacerbated by the fact that yarns are not priced individually, and there are no signs posted indicating price (the exception was the Malabrigo and a couple of kits that were priced.) The employee on duty seemed nice, but she was busy managing phone orders.

There were some nice yarns, and I might have been tempted to buy a sweater's worth of a couple of them if it had been a more comfortable atmosphere. It seems like there are two stores crammed into a tiny space in a high rent area. Store is very cute from the outside. I was disappointed that there was nothing from local artists, as I was on vacation and expected to buy a lot of "souvenirs."
