I have found local yarn shops to be, often, little oases of beauty. It makes sense, really, that the owners might have an artistic sensibility and would create a lovely space to be. Here, then, I share some images of my favorites with you.
I have a few more favorites, but, for various reasons, don’t have photos right now. Those favorites include Knot Another Hat in Hood River, Oregon and Close Knit and the Knitting Bee in Portland, Oregon. All great places to spend an hour or an afternoon!

Loved this photo essay.
Thank you, Mary
I see “Wordless Wednesday” often but I’m confused as to what it means.
You’re right, Cathy – I should rename this one “(Not So) Wordless Wednesday.” Generally, though, I try to tell a story almost solely through pictures.
Aha! You aren’t the one using words. I honestly didn’t understand what the criteria was.
I started using Wordless Wednesday as a feature back when I took Blogging 201, and I set up parameters for myself…but I don’t really know whether others use similar criteria.
As you might imagine I love yarn stores…it’s a must-see site in any city I visit! Some of my closest friends are the people I’ve met in these stores. It’s more than just yarn. It’s a community. Thank you for sharing.
I also seek out yarn shops when I travel and try to find at least one skein of local yarn. And so well said about community! Thanks for sharing, Belinda!
