Faith and Rebecca, our friends from the Boca group
The Knitting Garden is Caryn's favorite LYS. I can see why - it's everything a knitting shop should be: clean, bright, well organized and staffed by incredibly charming people. Annie is the shop owner and she was very happy to see us.
Annie hard at work
Her yarns are generally organized by fiber content and weight. She has a nice selection of premium yarns including Rowan, Malabrigo, Dream in Color and Lorna's Laces in a variety of colorways all neatly marked. Yarn Heaven.
I love a shop with lots of Koigu
Manos del Uruguay - mucho yardage
Lovely garment samples for inspiration

as Caryn and Helen look on.
Don't worry, Helen, no yarn was harmed in the process.
Not only is the yarn browsing top notch, but this is also a place that invites you to sit down and stay a while. Annie has a table in back for classes and whatnot (there's a flat screen TV for movie nights on Mondays). In addition, she has a little seating area which we commandeered. Comfy chairs in a yarn shop - Knitting Garden has it all.
Really, what more is there left to say?
