Do any of you know if there are any yarn shops around milwaukee or s.e. WI? Hobby Lobby isn't cutting it anymore and I don't really like to order yarn over the internet.

I'm not a knitter, but many people I work with are! I'll ask them! I know that the new Joanne's that opened up in by southridge now carries a decent selection, or so I've heard!

The JoAnn's by Southridge(S 76th st) is pretty massive, some good stuff.  Also: Michael's craft store just off of S 27th St has a middlin'-good selection, and then there's also Hancock Fabrics on Highway 100.
For my money, I've always had the best luck at Hancock...their physical display area is a bit smaller, but they seem to stock a pretty good selection.  Dirt cheap through luxurious.  If you want directions/addresses, just ask.
I'll ask around a bit at my knitting group tonight...

I found an answer to my own question too.  They are towards northern milwaukee. I havn't been there yet but their site looks good.

Planet Bead on Milwaukee Street right downtown seems to have a good yarn selection, with some very fancy-looking stuff. I've only today bought my first crochet kit, so I couldn't tell you much more than that, but as I learn more...well, anyway. Also, i thought i saw a sign on KK in Bayview of a knitting store opening up, looked like a hip-speciatly store kind of thing. Can't for the life of me remember the name!

flyingfish--- I totally freaked out when I saw the ad for the new bay view yarn store on the back of this week's Onion. Very nice. Did the flyer you had say when it opened??

Will anyone take classes there? wonder what classes they will have.. hmm...
ALL ready to visit this new store. Now need to win the lottery to buy tons of pretty yarn  Wink

I don't know when it's supposed to open, I talked to the lady because I wanted her to know about Art vs. Craft and she was really nice- but I can't seem to recall the opening date.... I want to take classes there and to my suprise my boyfriend brought up the idea of him joining me. Always a suprise. If I hear anything I'll let you know- or I guess you could call. No classes for me until winter- too busy!!

That is cute that your boyfriend is willing to come to knitting class with you! Good luck with the class, well at least finding time for the class I guess.
hehe, yeah you're right, I could call  Roll Eyes  I am sorta slow sometimes! Actually thought of that after freaking out and posting and then rereading your original post which listed a # and email! Doh!
Too much working rots the brain, I swear!!  Grin 
Doesn't it suck that summers are always so busy??

On a bit of a side note, is anyone going to warped tour MKE?? Don't know if I'm going yet, but sort of want to see Alk3 (yet again...), Tiger Army, and Atmosphere..
