There's a yarn store on Hope Street across from Rochambeau Library.  Can't remember the name.  It's similar to Stitch Above, but brighter.

I believe there's one on Rte 2...if you're going South, it's right past the intersection where you'd take a left to CCRI. I've never actually been in it, though.

Fresh Purls is the shop near the Hope/Rochambeau intersection (definately bus accessible).  They are certainly much smaller than A Stitch Above, but they are now my most local LYS.  They are also quite friendly and seem to want to help their customers a lot.  For example, last time I was in, they were plying together 2 skeins of yarn for a women (for free, mind you) just so she wouldnt have to knit off two balls at once. 

They may be a bit pricey, but then I think most LYSs are pricey.

Hey everyone~

I live in MA right now, but I go to school at Salve (in Newport) and I intern in Providence.  Can anyone recommend any good yarn stores around those areas?  I'm thinking Prov, Warwick, Newport, Middletown mostly.  I'm really pretty much willing to go anywhere, though, since the state is so small.

Thanks for any suggestions!!   Cheesy

Sakkonet Purls hands down.  I love that shop.
