Yarn Shop: Eat.Sleep.Knit.


I’m in Atlanta this weekend for the Pen Show but I had to make a detour for the epic Eat.Sleep.Knit yarn shop which was so worth it! They are tucked away in a business office park so you certainly wouldn’t stumble across the store by chance but if you’ve ever visited their online shop you know it is a must-see stop if you’re in Atlanta. They stock great handpainted yarn vendors like Madeline Tosh, Dream in Color, Shibui, Malabrigo, Lorna’s Laces and many more. All the yarn is organized by manufacturer and they carry the full lines from each manufacturer. MadTosh lace? Check! Dream in Color Smooshy? All the colors!

I tried to restrain myself and only purchased five skeins of 400+ yards each of fingering weight. I got three skeins of Madeline Tosh in Calligraphy, Celadon and Nebula plus a skein of Malabrigo Mechita which is a single-ply in Musas. I just couldn’t take my eyes of this color. And the last skein is a local dyer, Numma Numma. I the Doppio merino/cashmere/nylon in Violet Steel. Numma Numma, indeed. I also grabbed a smallish US 4 Hiya Hiya Sharp in case I decide to cast something on while I’m still on the road. I would have purchased a full set of the interchangeable Hiya Hiya Sharps but they were sold out.

Did I mention the staff was super nice and friendly. Asked if I needed space, chatted politely, gave me info about the Yarnathon and how to get discounts by setting up an account. Everything a yarn shop should be. Thanks for a great visit, ESK!
