Carmel & I did a 2016 New Year yarn crawl of three shops back in January. I covered Tolt & Mad Cow Yarn, but here is my coverage of Yarn of Eden. Don’t we have interesting yarn shop names here in the Pacific Northwest? I love a cleaver business name~
Yarn of Eden is located in Bothell, Washington! They are located in Country Village – a charming shopping center full of fun shops. Carmel & I had breakfast not far from this yarn shop.
It’s a small store but packed full of great things. One of my very favorite things, Chica Bags! The owner, Kathleen, was there to greet us and show us around. She told us all about her upcoming plans for the store, trunk shows etc. The store also carried Knitter’s Pride needles.
The store had a lovely knitting spot to hang out in comfortable chairs up front by the windows, with an additional space for classes in the back of the store. We saw lots of shop samples, and had a lovely visit.
Carmel & I are getting ready for the PNW Yarn Crawl happening this weekend. We will be hitting the road on Friday. If you happen to see us, say hello! We’ll be starting at Amanda’s Art Yarn & Fibers in Poulsbo, and finishing up at the Allyn Knit Shop in Allyn. We’ll be posting on Facebook, Ravelry, Instagram & Twitter.
Carmel & I are located in Washington state, but we’d love to feature your LYS, or a shop on your travels. Take some snaps, send them to me on facebook or email, write a couple of lines, and we’ll do a spotlight! Until next time…Mary*
