"I adore this warm, cheery little store. The walls are lined, floor to ceiling, with beautiful, colorful, high-quality yarn. The staff is interested in helping and yet respectful if they sense you would like to be left alone to browse and touch the yarn.
I signed up for a knitting class and Grace spent time going from pupil to pupil, assisting each with equal amounts of skill, patience and good cheer. Seriously, I don't know how she does it -- her well of patience is infinite." ~Holly H. 12/17/07

    Entrelac (French for latticework) is the exquisite technique used to create a textured diamond pattern.
