This combination yarn store and coffeehouse was located at 311 Wallace Avenue in St. Matthews. Being a yarn fetishist myself, I can't see having a place that encourages people to handle the goods while also handling food and drink. Their logo even depicted a ball of yarn floating in a cup of coffee, for God's sake; wrong message!
When I open a yarn store - and someday I will - it'll be lined with shelves containing only one skein of each type available for sale. Let that one display skein get handled and shopworn, and keep the rest stashed in a back room, safe from the coughing sneezing unwashed masses.
