Nina Chicago

hello this sunny Saturday from Chicago!

straight from this beautiful city

I am excited to share with you

one of those yarn shops where you can stay for hours

full of pure inspiration

welcomed by these cute yarn snowmen, you enter a shop full of quality yarns

in the most amazing color ranges

together with lots of temtping examples

for yourself

and the little ones

how cute can they get?!

Nina and Sam make this place such a warm and inviting store

it feels like home when you sit on the couch and knit a few more rows

like Robin did, while her son Soren was still sleeping

well, this sweet boy did wake up in the end

if you are in the neighborhood, go and visit this inspiring store

a beautiful yarn collection, and friendly professional ladies ~ you will be hooked


more shop features coming up soon...


  1. Oh my goodness - what an awesome shop - love the yarn snowmen!


  2. Glad you made it there. And isn't it nice to have that fresh skiff of powery snow overnight. Even nicer that the sun is out here today. Have a great time. By the way, I'm about an hour west outside of the city.
