Yvonne from California visited a yarn shop on her travels and email this in.
Great shop! First of three I visited. Lots of PNW yarns as well as Madelinetosh, Quince (that I can’t get at home), Hazelknits and Brown Sheep.
I purchased a skein of Imperial yarn, the yarn used to make the US team outfits for Sochi.
The staff is friendly and knowledge. While I was there I visited with some ladies that attend Fridays knitting in the shop. They directed us to an Italian sandwich shop a couple of doors down for lunch. It always pays to talk with the locals!
