about Twisted on Wed Feb 25 05:47:20 +0000 2009

What a fun store to walk into with a good friend (SunflowerCompass). We spent the weekend on a yarn crawl and we returned to this store twice- had to go back and pick up a few items. While we were there, a knitting class was in session. Great to see their teaching in action. The only downside is that all the notions are on the back wall behind the class teaching area. Love this store!

about Yarn Garden on Wed Feb 25 05:43:34 +0000 2009

A copious amounts of yarn to choose from and a whole room of patterns, magazines and notions. A must visit when in town.

about Soft Horizons Fibre on Fri Nov 28 20:10:33 +0000 2008

Soft Horizons hosted the stitch and pitch in August 2008. The provided a fun venue with great food and good company. I enjoyed a nice discount at the store the next day. Lovely selection!

about Knot Another Hat on Fri Nov 28 20:06:02 +0000 2008

Spent the weekend here with SunflowerCompass. We had a terrific time in the shop and knitting the hours away. This place really got me hooked.

about Knitting Bee on Wed Feb 25 05:54:43 +0000 2009

A real gem of a knit shop! SunflowerCompass and I unfortunately walked into the shop about 10 minutes before closing due to heavy traffic on 84. The staff allowed us to look around at our leisure, while they worked on closing the shop. They even wound the yarn that I purchased- It is important to them to not cut corners or rush, making sure that all our needs were met. I will definitely visit this store again when in Portland!

about Dublin Bay Knitting Company on Wed Feb 25 05:39:37 +0000 2009

Spent some time here with SunflowerCompass. If I lived in Portland, I can visualize spending tons of time here just soaking up the comfort. Great place!

about Cultured Purls on Fri Nov 28 20:04:10 +0000 2008

My favorite yarn store- just can't keep out of it. Great selection and staff that always have a helping hand. C

Visited the store on the first day of the 09 LYStour. I was greeted warmly and enjoyed the staff and store. Lot's of great fibers. I will return.

about Tricoter on Thu May 14 22:01:45 +0000 2009

Beautiful store and the staff were spectacular. They were very helpful and encouraging to a new knitter that had just walked in after I did. Fabulous buttons too.

about The Weaving Works on Thu May 14 22:05:00 +0000 2009

Arrived late afternoon on the first day of the 09 LYStour. I was greeted warmly and encouraged to look around. I enjoyed the selection of fibers and the layout of the store. Did not feel crowded.

about Acorn Street Shop on Thu May 14 22:07:12 +0000 2009

A delightful shop! Wonderful displays and selection. The staff were fun and obviously enjoying themselves and their work. I plan on returning to this shop when in the area.

about Seattle Yarn on Sat May 16 06:19:53 +0000 2009

Great shop and very friendly staff. A place to go to again when I am in the area.

about Apple Yarns on Sun May 17 05:50:10 +0000 2009

I visited this shop on the third day of the LYStour 09 with a friend. It is a very delightful store. We were greeted warmly and were encouraged to look around ask if we had any questions. They have a ton of knitted examples and we really enjoyed our time there.

about NW Handspun Yarns on Sun May 17 05:53:03 +0000 2009

I can't believe that there are'nt a ton of comments. This store is a MUST visit when in Bellingham. I visited with a friend on the third day of the LYSTour 09. The staff couldn't have been better. the selection was spectacular- such a warm and inviting shop.

about Beach Basket Yarn and Gifts on Sun May 17 05:57:17 +0000 2009

I visited this shop on the third day of the LYSTour 09. Well worth the drive to get there. I couldn't believe how many different things that they have in the shop. So much yarn! I found a bag knitted up that I wanted the pattern for, they found it right away for me and they even helped me by giving great suggestions on how to line it with fabric. She was working on lining a bag and showed me all her secrets. Fabulous!

about Churchmouse Yarns & Teas on Mon May 18 05:37:13 +0000 2009

My last stop on theLYSTour 09. Well worth the wait. The shop is beautiful, the staff are fantastic! Great selection of yarns and the fun twist of the tea shop.
