(I recently wrote this review for Google Local, but I decided to post it here and go in depth a little more… plus, I wanted to show off the haul from the last time I went :P)
Whether you’re a novice knitter, or a Knitting Diva like moi, Argyle is an excellent LYS (local yarn shop) to patronize. The owners (Esther and David) are very helpful and sweet and the shop just oozes welcome.
They have a decent selection of yarns (Malabrigo, Madelinetosh, Shibui, and Rowan amongst others…). They wind your yarn for free when you buy it, and I have even seen Esther helping out someone with a pattern a few times! I’ve been there several times and they always remember me—very touching, since I live out-of-the-way and make it out there sporadically at best.
They have a room in the back where they host trunk shows and local knitting groups, as well as a table and chairs in the main part of the store. The space is well lighted and modern looking; yarns and accouterments are neat and tastefully displayed.
The only minus I can think of is their distance from me
They’re located at 288 Prospect Park West, Brooklyn, NY 11215. They are open Tuesday-Sunday 12-7.
This is what I got from them last time:
