The Center of the Yarniverse in downtown Ashland, Virginia.
As you can tell, I stopped in the other day and I was quite pleased with the shop. Maybe a little too pleased.
The staff was friendly and helpful without being the least bit pushy. And the yarn... Oh my goodness, the yarn! They had yarn for every budget and lots of it. The shop is small and filled to the brim but it in no way feels overwhelming or claustrophobic. They've really done a great job with setting up their displays.
Considering all the shop had to offer, I didn't buy much but I did purchase three Christmas gifts and a pair of socks for myself worth of yarn.
The shop is so new they haven't even had their grand opening yet. The grand opening celebration is scheduled for November 10th and guess what - I don't have to work that day!
This new yarn shop is going to be a very, very dangerous place.
