Yarn Store III: Bodega @ Rosario, Pasig

I have a multiply account and have been blogging about anything (and of course about yarns and crocheted stuffs) when a fellow multiply user commented on my blog post : Baguio’s Treasures

So that’s just what we did. One weekend, I asked michael to accompany me to that place without even knowing the name of the store or if it really exists. We took a bus going to Ayala, and we took off at Ortigas Avenue, climbed the pink pedestrian overpass under the MRT, walked at the side of Robinson’s Galleria where jeepneys are abound.

We looked for jeepneys with a sign that says : Rosario.

We passed by the C5 Ortigas Flyover, the rosario bridge and then right after the bridge is a Pedestrian Overpass. We asked the driver to stop the jeepney. From there we climbed the overpass across to go the the other side of the street. There were really lots of ‘bodega’ [Storage Houses] that sell yarns by kilo.

the yarns they are selling are like those we saw in baguio.

    Hey, nice picture! XD

    Rosario is the best place to look for affordable yarn talaga, kaya lang di na ko masyadong nakakapunta kasi busy sa school.

    BTW, I read in one of your posts that Coop sells Monacco threads and I was like “What, may thread sa coop, lumayo pa ko?” LOL. I actually checked the other day, and I found out that it was true. And now, I keep on wondering why I never noticed it before… siguro hindi lang ako madalas nagagawi sa Coop o sa SC man… kahit na nasa Engg ako palagi. LOL.

    Nabasa ko rin how you got to Rosario, medyo malayo yung nilakbay niyo, lalo na kung nasa QC ka lang. Pag umuuwi ako galing UP, madalas napapa-isip ako kung dadaan ba ko sa Rosario. Kasi from Katipunan, pwede kang sumakay ng jeep na dumadaan sa Ligaya. May station ng jeep sa Ligaya na Pasig-Markina yung route and yung jeep na yun dumadaan mismo dun sa tapat nung store sa Rosario, minimum lang yung fare kasi wala pa atang 4kms yun from Ligaya.

    Uy! taga up ka lang din? haha.. QC lang ako.. 😀 Thanx for the new direction. Yaan mo update ko ung blog ko. Hehehe…

    I dunno if i could go back to rosario in the near future.. Tambak pa ang yarns dito sa bahay e 🙂 But I did notice the other route nung pauwi na kami dumadaan nga ang Jeep sa Ilalim ng overpass sa katips. 😀

    Hi, i was hoping you could give me a clear description of how to get to the bodega at pasig if i’ll be taking the mrt?
    How much per kilo is it?
    I’m hoping that i could start my crotchet business this year.

    I haven’t been to Rosario or Divisoria for yarn but I’m glad to learn how to get there… Yarns and accessories at glorietta are very expensive. I only rely on this small store in our place. Their yarns are affordable but limited stocks only… I also haunt for knitting and crochet patterns and magazines; vogue knitting, creative knitting, simply knitting, verena etc. Right now I’m finishing up my 1st bed doll…

    Hi! I’m one of the yarn addicts who buys from Rosario. Marami pa din ako stock na yarn pero I try to buy at least weekly. Medyo nagtaas na dinkasi sila ng price. A month ago Php270 lang per kilo ung isang type ng yarn pero ngayon nasa Php310 na. Pero syempre sobrang mura pa din compared sa labas 🙂
