Knit Happens is a nice little yarn shop in Old Town Alexandria, VA. While I can't complain about the merchandise, the staff there seem to be a bit standoffish. I've also taken a class at Knit Happens and it was probably one of THE worst knitting classes I've taken. They hold the classes right smack dab in the middle of the store where, during the class, customers are perusing around for their yarn and people are spinning yarn, so it is disruptive, loud, and not at all conducive to learning. Plus the teacher I had was a smoker, so it was awful having to be squeezed in that little space with all those people hovering over you with the heavy smell of nicotine in the air. Knitting is supposed to be a fun and CALMING experience and Knit Happens doesn't help one to have this during their classes. If you're looking for some great knitting classes or advanced instruction, go to Aylin's Woolgatherers and ask for Debra Lee. Aylin's Woolgatherers is also a nice yarn shop in Falls Church, VA. The staff are great (even to new comers) AND they have classes (crochet and knit), but in a totally separate area from the store (which is a basically a classroom area right next to the store). I give Knit Happens 1star for having a nice selection of needles and one or two comfy chairs, but beyond that, I highly doubt I'll go back to Knit Happens. It's definitely overrated.

Knit Happens is a very girly knitting store, which is evident from their pink and green color scheme. Employees are very friendly, and you are welcome to sit and knit for a while or ask their advice on a pattern. The yarn selection is decent for such a small store, although they do stock a lot of very expensive yarns. They also do online orders, which you can do through their website, and offer classes frequently. It's a fun and friendly place.
