The only really crafty thing I do is knitting, and while the Stitch Niche is my favorite, there are 2 other ones, Knit 1 Purl 1 and Stone's Throw. I don't care for Knit 1 Purl 1 but that's a whole other post. The owner is nice and they do have a lot of European yarns. Stone's Throw is in Georgetown which isn't far from where I live but 25-30 minutes from other parts of Lex. It's a small shop that only carries Brown Sheep, Crystal Palace, Patons, and a couple of other things but they are very nice and helpful.
Could you (or anyone else who knows) give me an idea of where Knit 1 Purl 1 and Stone's Throw are located? I tried to look Knit 1 Purl 1 up in the phone book, but no luck, and I don't have a Georgetown phone book. I know you say you don't like Knit 1 Purl 1 but I'd like to check it out for myself anyway. I love the Stitch Niche!
And for you guys talking about Paisley Peacock...did you know it closed? According to the sign on the door, they're getting evicted for not paying rent.
