This is one of my favorite yarn shops in the country. It's a little pricy, but I've had great customer service and when I'm visiting Portland, I try to make time for the Thursday knit nite. I've also placed a shipping order. Not only did I get what I needed, it came with a hand written note referencing our conversation.
I always look forward to visiting this shop when I'm in Dallas. The staff and owner are so friendly, knowledgable and helpful. They're able to suggest alternate yarns for patterns or help you with a project - and they're always curious about your latest project, no matter where you bought the yarn. The store itself is small and cozy and has a great selection for it's size. I'd highly recommend it. If you're from out-of-town, it's in a great area with lots of shops and local dining options.
A servicable shop that stocks not only yarn, but handmade goods. They jewelry selection is quirky and unique and there's a selection of woven and knit items - but I prefer to make my own. There is a great stock of pattern books and workhorse yarns as well as more luxury yarns. The staff is very plesant and helpful. Overall, a great shop in a great location.
