Saturday, on a hunt for some fingering weight yarn (I'm test knitting a new shawlette pattern), I went to a local yarn store for the first time. It's called Lovin' Knit Yarn Shop and Studio.
I can't say enough good things about this shop. The owner and (Pat) and one of her employees (Cindy) were wonderfully helpful and incredibly welcoming. They had a great selection of yarns and their shop is very well laid out. They even encourage crocheters and aren't a bit biased against them. That's such a nice thing to see in a lys. Most of the lys' that I've seen tend to cater only to the knitter and ignore those that crochet.
Plus, to make this visit even better, they were having a sale on Noro (buy one, get one half off) and I just couldn't pass it up. I snagged some Lang Yarns Jawoll Magic sock yarn in the most beautiful greens ever and two skeins of Noro Silk Garden at the sale price.
With all this shop has going for it, I'll definitely be going back soon!
