Local Yarn Shops

Is there anything more fabulous than to enter a yarn shop – I mean a real yarn shop (not just a corner of a craft store) – and be able to smell the beauty of the place?!

We are so fortunate here in Portland to have a whole bunch of AMAZING local yarn shops.  Nearly all of them have Knit Nights or Charity Knitting get togethers, and I don’t think I know of a single one that doesn’t offer classes of some sort.  Honestly – your LYS is *the* place to meet new friends and find some seriously habit-forming fiber!

A great way to keep up with what’s going on in the Knitting Community in town is to subscribe to a shop’s blog!  You’ll get the inside scoop on sales, events, special classes, and the like.  Totally the right thing to do!

Here are some of the stores (in alphabetical order) that I’m particularly fond of – let me know if you’ve got any you’d like to add to the list.
