Knitwit is now open as well as Loop...also in Bay View...both very cool!

I stopped in at Loop for the first time today and I loved it! The selection is awesome and it's woman-owned, which makes me feel all warm inside  Wink. Web site: www.loopyarnshop.com.

I must have driven right by Knitwit and not even noticed it...gah! Maybe next time...

Yeah, Knitwit is on Kinnickinnic right by Lulu's & Stone Creek...I work across the street so I stop in now & then...Haven't been to loop yet, cuz I always drive by when they're closed...but the shop looks really cool...I actually just learned how to knit 2 weeks ago, so I'll be shopping at both quite a bit!

Knit Wit is really easy to miss. It's on the east side of KK, half a block north of Stone Creek. There's not a lot of signage but there's yarn stuff in the windows. The selection is small, but what is there is really unusual and beautiful, some really nice Japanese noro and whatnot, and the owner is super chatty and helpful. She gave me a pattern for a scarf and did a quick yarn over lesson. She also hosts a stitch n bitch every week.

I love love love loop, good size selection and the owner is really nice as well. They have classes and also have open knitting nights.

Rhuama's is really intimidating... that place is huge! and totally worth the extra drive to get up there - I work in Glendale so it's only a minor detour. I spent $100 there on a ton of yarn when they had a huge sale back in February. My coworker who taught me how to crochet finds that place very dangerous because she can't resist dropping a lot of money there too.

Planet Bead has a small selection, but also has nice stuff. I have to avoid going there because I get distracted with all the amazing beads....oooooh all the pretty beads......

Not quite Milwaukee, but the Grafton Yarn Store is totally worth checking out.  http://www.graftonyarnstore.com/

Their selection is nice.  There's always yarn on sale.  And they have classes and knit at your own pace groups.  All in all, a very nice place.

Kendra: Yes.
Buffy: Remind me to get you a stuffed animal.

Kro-sha on Vliet is awesome.  Beth (the owner) is super nice and will take very good care of you.

There's a fabulous yarn shop in Elm Grove, called the Yarn House - they have, without a doubt, one of the best selections of yarn and wools around, and their prices are quite reasonable!
