I'm traveling to Philly for the end of the week and weekend. Do any of you have any recommendations about Philly yarn shops to visit?? I'll be in downtown, mostly.
I think you should definitely go to Loop - a yarn shop owned by a man. It's a beautiful store located at 1914 South Street. Their web site is:
There are others, including Sophie's Yarns at 713 S. 4th. Street. Their web site is: http://www.sophiesyarns.com/
And, Rosie's Yarn Cellar at 2017 Locust Street ... http://www.rosiesyarncellar.com/
But if you can only get to one, I'd head for Loop.
