I need help finding a local yarn shop. I've moved to Vancouver, WA and I all I can seem to find is one in Vancouver itself. I went to a Portland shop today and it just wasn't my style. It seems like a great shop if you are in the "target" group. I thought it would be great because it was a cafe and knittery. But I was unaware of the fact that they served beer and wine and that I was in a part of town that is a little more alternative. I can handle alternative to a point but I usually don't fit in that well. :) I also don't want to take my son to somewhere that serves beer and wine, nor do I really want to go there.
So because I am discouraged and don't want to drive a half hour one way again just to walk into and then out of a store, I am asking for your help. The person who finds the yarn shop that I want to hang out in the most will recieve a very beautiful gift of YARN!!! My stash hasn't gotten here yet so I can't look at it and just let you know what the prize will be but let's just say I have great yarn and I am usually not stingy on gifts. :) For those of you who don't know me very well I am a single mom and a college student. I am attending the college for global deployment and getting my degree in missions. (That's why beer and wine don't apeal to me) I am a girly girl and love pretty nice things. I sell Mary Kay. Hopefully that gives you a thought of who I am. So I need somewhere nice, pretty, but also comfy and casual so that I can take my son there. It would be great if I could find somewhere that has a toy room or something like that. I went to a yarn store in NC that had a toy room with a rocking chair, TV, ect in it. I so wish I lived there because it would allow me to hang out and knit all the time. :) So there you have it. Are you up to the challenge? :) I hope so.
