I will be going to visit my grandfather who lives around Winchester. I did an online search and found 2 knitting shops that are there. Does anyone have any experience with any of the local shops?

Frog Eye Fibers is owned by a lovely woman, and the shop is in the back of her house. Definitely visit her!

Is Frog Eye Fibers actually in the downtown part of WInchester? I'm not real familiar with the area.

Here is a list of Virginia (and West Virginia) yarn stores.
http://www.brysonknits.com/VA&WV.html

I'm not too sure how accurate it is but it lists Knit 1 Purl 2 as being in Winchester also. If you have a day I highly recommend a day trip to Middleburg, it's less than an hours drive. It's a very cute little town with lots of little shops and most importantly it's the home of hunt Country Yarns http://www.skeins.com

No, she's off in the boonies somewhere - but worth the drive!

Dear BTK,
I live very near Winchester and know that the shop downtown on Boscawen Street is closed for the holidays. The owner usually goes down to Florida until mid January. Frog Eye Fibers is in a ladies home out on Cedar Creek Grade. You should call ahead and make sure that she is open.

If you don't mind driving 45-60 minutes I have 2 suggestions from Winchester.

1. Middleburg VA off RT. 50, Hunt Country Yarns. Wonderful selection and nice finished projects to look at.

2. My Favorite Yarn Shop in Warrenton, VA. The shop is across from the Fauquier Hospital. Lots of alpaca, books, and a room to sit and knit.

Hope this helps you out a bit. I've been going to the Knit 1 Purl 2 shop in Winchester for years but it's very hit or miss with the hours she's open. She's got crazy hours and days off and it is very hard to plan a visit.
