Not too long ago a new LYS moved into the area: Looped Yarn Works. Yesterday I visited it for the second time and took pictures. This is a dangerous place for me because it's a seven-minute walk from my apartment and is directly across the street from a bus stop on my route home. DC has a terrible dearth of yarn shops, so it's kind of a miracle that it's here at all, much less so close to where I live.
The staff are fantastic: willing to give you a tour if it's your first time, eager to talk about your project and which yarns might be best, and even offering to wind your yarn for you.
|It's on the second floor and easy to miss, but so worth the trip.|
|Oh happy, happy place.|
|They carry all my favorite yarns.|
|Of course I couldn't make it out of there without a purchase.|
I am entertaining the possibility of teaching myself to knit socks. We'll see. For now I'm sticking to crochet.
