I live in Acworth and we used to have the cutest little specialty yarn shop in town (The Yarn Garden) and I was heartbroken when they went out of business.  I know my local Wal-Mart and JoAnn carry a pretty extensive selection of yarns and our new Michael's is about to open, but I miss the small specialty yarn shop.  Does anyone know of a small, indepedently owned yarn shop in my area?

There are several yarn stores in the area. On Marietta Square, you have the Purly Gates http://www.thepurlygates.com/. Just a block or so away is Three Dog Knit.

In Kennesaw, the Knitting Emporium http://www.knittingemporium.com/.

And Woodstock has the Whole Nine Yarns http://www.thewholenineyarns.com/.

I haven't been back to Marietta since I moved to Acworth, but the Woodstock and Kennesaw stores have lots to offer. I've heard the Purly Gates is carrying a larger selection of "basic" yarns than they used to, so I may pay them a visit soon. I'll also check in on Three Dog Knit. It's a smaller store and I hadn't checked out their inventory since they opened up.

Thank you so much!  It's funny because I had noticed The Purly Gates when I had to go to the Cobb County courthouse to obtain my marriage license back in June.  I almost had to interrupt my wedding plans to go yarn browsing LOL  I had completely forgotten they were there and I have no clue how I missed the Knitting Emporium since I go through the town of Kennesaw all the time.  I'm going to have to check all of them out.   Grin
