About Valery Alta

I'm a grade school ESL teacher and a total wordnerd, a devout Whedonite, liberally colorful (and colorfully liberal), and of course: a crochet and knitting fanatic.

about Twisted on Sun Dec 20 16:27:06 -0600 2009

From the first day I walked into this shop and saw the Dr. Horrible themed teas and the array of scrumptious yarns, and met the absolutely delightful staff, I was hooked. (Crochet pun totally intended.)

I live quite a hike from there, so I don't get to visit as often as I'd like, but I'm headed over there in just a couple hours to teach a crochet class. Those lovely people even gave me a bit of a job!

about Close Knit on Sun Dec 20 16:28:39 -0600 2009

Tiny but positively crammed with yumminess. Being next door to Bolt doesn't hurt, either!

about The Naked Sheep Knit Shop on Sun Dec 20 16:31:53 -0600 2009

Truly welcoming place in North Portland. The Knit Night is a tight squeeze, but the regulars really know how to have a good time. This was the first LYS I ever discovered, and though I've moved out to the burbs, The Naked Sheep and Cheri and Brad are still special to me.
