about Black Sheep Yarns on Mon Jan 12 08:28:49 -0600 2009

I visited Black Sheep from out of town and found the staff to be super friendly and helpful. I loved the selection of regional, hand-dyed yarns and will certainly visit again!

about Robyn's Woolgathering on Mon Jan 12 08:32:29 -0600 2009

This store has a new owner who is in the process of restocking the shelves, so it is a bit bare at the moment but I am sure that this is temporary. The owner saw me peeking in the window on a day that they were closed and she opened up the store for me to browse! Very friendly place, will visit agin!

about Kaliedoscope Wool Shoppe on Sat Jan 17 14:59:20 -0600 2009

Kaliedoscope is worth the drive because not only is there a a cute little shop, but you can also tour their working museum/woolen mill. They sell their own brand of wools in worsted, lopi, and bulky 6-strand. Fun and cute knitting kits complete with patterns and supplies are available. A really fun day trip, it was a great discovery last summer!

about The Knit Cafe on Sat Oct 17 16:22:11 -0500 2009

Stopped in at this store during a recent visit to Toronto. It had the best window display - a circus of knitted and crocheted owls performing a high wire trapeze act. They had a small but solid selection of lovely yarns to tempt me. The staff was very helpful - she picked up quickly on my needs and guided me towards some great seamless sweater patterns. I signed up for their e-newsletter and was included in the mail out the very next day. It is now on my list of "must-visit's" for future trips to Toronto!

about Romni Wools on Sat Oct 17 16:28:53 -0500 2009

This place always have what I am looking for - this time it was Magnum Cascade in a broad selection of colours - but finding it is always the hardest part. As usual, it was a bit of a zoo, and I could not find staff to help me out so I had to search through the walls, aisles and towers of plastic bins to hunt down my specific yarn. I have an in-and-out approach to this store because it is so overwhelming. I usually spend more $ when I can comfortably browse, so I never make impulse purchases at this store - good for me, too bad for them.
