LYS Reviews

I went to a very nice baby shower on Saturday where I gifted the bootees and everyone seemed to love them. Afterward I stopped at one of my many lys' where I picked up this skein of Cotonade and a free dishcloth pattern. The perfect project for tv knitting - which is what I did all day yesterday.

I am very fortunate to have so many yarn shops so close to me but I have to tell you, Double Ewe is my favorite. Kelly has really done well with her new yarn shop, very organized, a wide variety of yarn and excellent customer service.

One other local yarn shop (I won't be saying the name here) which I visited last Tuesday evening, has changed SO much since the last time I was there I don't think I'll go back any time soon. Very disappointing and I left empty handed. I hope the owners come to realize they shouldn't have messed with a good thing.
There are several others that I visit every now and then if I'm looking for something specific and they're just fine for that.

I will definitely check out Double Ewe the next time I'm in town, but now I'm dying to know which shop has changed for the worse...

Double Ewe, eh? Where is that, up north, right? Circle Pines? I do believe I'll have to make a stop next time I'm headed up 35W.

Please do dish on the offending LYS via email! I am quite curious (or would that be nosy?).
