about House of Bartlett on Wed Sep 22 21:37:27 -0500 2010

I specifically made a trip to St. Ives on my tour of Cornwall to visit this shop. I was so excited to find it after much meandering that I asked my husband t take a photo of me as I entered the shop. The shopkeeper went ballistic. She ranted at us about presuming we could photograph her shop, how we needed to ask permission beforehand. Even though we apologized profusely she continued to rant about our poor manners. I was very embarrassed and upset, we left the shop immediately. I so wanted to look around and chat about yarn - but I was completely mortified by her reaction to the one photo. It may be a great shop (I really didn't have a chance to look around). Just be sure not to snap a photo.

Trying to find any specific address is very difficult in Venice, but with help from my hubby we found this place. A small selection of very nice Italian yarns in a variety of styles and pricing. The staff was polite and helpful. It is a small space and there were 4 customers and 2 employees in it and I don't believe anymore people could have fit. I didn't have any trouble finding something lovely to bring home and knit up in memory of my trip to Venice.

about The Custom Shop on Thu Nov 01 01:33:51 -0500 2012

This shop is now called The Ball and Skein (cute!). Cozy little shop with a friendly owner. I love to purchase a skein of local yarn whenever I travel. They had some great yarns to choose from. Don't be dissuaded by the bad link here on knitmap. There is still a yarn shop at this address and phone number - so check it out.

about Halcyon Yarn on Thu Nov 01 01:45:23 -0500 2012

A huge selection of yarn and spinning supplies. The service and atmosphere was so-so. When I asked for the free pattern that was suggested to go along with the yarn I was purchasing, they seemed a little put out. But I am happy with my yarn and the pattern they reluctantly gave me! It is their hand-dyed 2/5 silk. Feels beautiful.
