|For a good time visit A Good Yarn|
Friend Kerri did not exaggerate in any way. As soon as I walked into A Good Yarn I was nearly overwhelmed with the eye candy presented by so many luscious colors and textures. Visually, this is a lovely shop. The people (staff and customers) were warm and welcoming. I absolutely love when a shop's staff is knowledgeable and willing to help without hovering. A Good Yarn hit that balance perfectly. I know that we all have our favorite yarns. For me, the offerings were perfect (Debbie Bliss, Rowan, Habu, Claudia Hand-paints, Handmaiden, Louet, Koigu and a lot more). It was like having all of my favorite NY/NJ/Philly shops in one place. I want to move to Sarasota. At the very least we will have to visit my Godmother more often.
I did ask about online ordering and was assured that they are working on a new website (in the mean time you can give them a call to order). If their online service is as good as their in-person shopping experience, A Good Yarn could easily become my next go-to knitting source.
In addition to yarn, and needles (a pick up for Kerri), I could not resist another set of Namaste snap bags (they come in a set of three but I am already using two of them in my knitting bag), these really neat stitch markers called "Floops", and a pair of earrings made from sliced knitting needles (I am wearing those right now). Sadly I got so excited that I forgot to take pictures of the shop itself (the one above is of my purchases). You will have to pay A Good Yarn a visit to see for yourself just how awesome it is.
