Sadly, this shop closed in September of 2009. Zaynab is still teaching classes on occasion (especially in felting) and folks who were coming for Friday Night Knitting are still getting together, usually on Friday nights, sometimes at Starbucks on the north side of Dimond between New Seward and Old Seward and sometimes in private homes. When the store closed in September, there was talk of the website continuing to offer yarn, fiber, etc., but I'm not sure if that's happened.

Just visited Alaska and saw the new store. Great service and some good local yarns. The only drawback is that because of the trees, it's hard to find if you don't know exactly where it is.

The move to the new location looks like it will bring lots of changes. Instead of a huge single space, the shop is now a cluster of little rooms. There is loads of seating--some in every room, but much, much less yarn stock and few needles at this point. Looks like it will take a while to work out which yarns will earn their limited shelf space. Big bonus: mere steps away from Kaladi coffee!

I agree, this is a great store. Nice people and great unique yarns. The guy who works there loves his alpaca, and the owner has a real personal touch, which is probably why they have such a strong following.

I visited this shop for the first time this weekend, and although the space was great, I was really disappointed in the selection of needles. Being that I'm not a seasoned shopper of knitting shops I don't really know how good their yarn selection is. I guess it just depends on what you're looking for.

My favorite knitting store! The selection is fantastic, prices are reasonable and the staff is so helpful. They have a warm and welcoming environment and three seating areas (one of the areas is comfy couches the others are tables) to sit and knit at. also lots of great ladies to meet and knit with.
