LYS Miami Style Part 3

When we got to the Knitting Garden, we were delighted to see some familiar faces.

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

"I'll just get one of everything."

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?  

The End.

  1. The Knitting Garden is my LYS and you have captured the spirit of the shop perfectly. I do hope you all will return to sit and knit and fondle and shop. Annie and Virginia have created a warm, welcoming home for those of us who love to knit and crochet.

  2. Thanks, Barbara. I really appreciate your comment.
