about Knit/Purl on Tue Jul 07 14:42:34 -0500 2009

lovely selection of yarns but the staff were horribly rude and condescending. i've gone in twice and had the same experience both times so i doubt i'll be going back anytime soon.

about Yarn Garden on Tue Jul 07 14:46:00 -0500 2009

tons of yarn piled ceiling high, several rooms to browse through, a pattern room... i can spend hours here dreaming and planning out patterns.

about Twisted on Tue Jul 07 14:49:19 -0500 2009

lovely yarns, the wall of sock yarn can keep me interested for hours. comfy sofas where one can relaxing with tea and knitting make me feel relaxed the moment i walk through the door. one of my favourite yarn stores ever.

about Yarnia on Tue Jul 07 15:50:37 -0500 2009

the service is outstanding, and i mean outstanding! the owner was so helpful when i went in and made me feel very welcome. and the yarns, oh my, it was insane! i spent so much time playing with color and fiber, i have rarely had so much fun in a yarn store. they also have pre-made cones in various weights and colors in case you don't have the time or inspiration to create your own. just all-around wonderful.

about Close Knit on Tue Jul 07 15:58:57 -0500 2009

i almost wouldn't term this so much as a yarn store, but more a yarn boutique, it has that sort of feel. i went here for the first time on my birthday to buy myself something nice, and that is exactly what i got. so many lovely yarns i barely could keep myself from buying one of everything. the staff were helpful and friendly, eager to be of service while also giving you space to browse at your leisure. i've been back many times since and have a huge stash of lovely yarns to show for it.

about Dublin Bay Knitting Company on Tue Jul 07 16:01:11 -0500 2009

a very comfortable yarn store, homey and inviting. my husband even liked it, picking out several yarns without me having to urge him. the clerk was very nice as well, i'll definitely be back.

about Coastal Yarns on Mon Aug 17 02:07:29 -0500 2009

small but packed with lots of great yarns. the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. i don't get out to cannon beach very often but i will make sure to stop by this lys each time i do visit.

lots of wonderful crafty supplies. the yarn selection is quite nice and the sales person was very friendly, we chatted about knitted socks for quite a while after she was done ringing up my items. worth a visit.
