Knitting/Crochet: Cable Needles
Chicago LYS Nina opened in 2004. Nina, the original owner, had a vision of an inviting and contemporary space, and she filled it with beautiful textures, colors and lots of inspiration. After nearly 13 years, the shop transitioned into the hands of Hilary, a longtime employee and lover of all things crafty. Great yarn from Movers & Makers and others, sewing patterns, embroidery and more.

Dyer and sewist Gem is the founder of The Little Grey girl. “Knitting really is a rabbit hole of yarns, accessories and patterns that in the early days I just wasn’t expecting,” Gem says. “When it came to selecting accessories I just couldn’t find any project bags that reflected my style – so I got the sewing machine out and made my own.”
