We had the chance to visit and start a knit along for the Lacy Butterflies Cowl at The Yarn Store at Nob Hill (www.theyarnstoreatnobhill.com).
If I ever had a chance to create my own yarn store, I would want it to look and feel like this store. Everything fit together so well, the store is Fung Shui in all aspects.
From the minute we stepped into the store, we felt at home, the owner (Teresa) and staff member (Liz), the knitters, the environment, the lovely yarn... everything just calls out to you: "Come, sit down, relax, knit, create... make friends and laugh!"
The store has five different areas where knitters can sit and knit (open knit during store hours).
|One of the Sit & Knit Areas|
|Another Seating Area - Look at the Needlework Supplies!|
The selection of yarns was great too. It was almost as if my patterns were designed for the selection of yarns the store carries.
|The Yarn Shop carries at least 6 different yarns that are perfect for |
the Hollywood Flair Top-Down Tunic
My Crazy Aunt Purl's Tank Top displayed in the Yarn Shop - perfect yarns are Berroco's Seduce, Gedifra's Amara and Lang's yarns whose name escapes me at the moment.
|The Yarn Store carries three different yarns |
that are perfect for this tank top.
Many of the yarns are made by environmentally concerned and fair trade concerned producers. Other yarns are produced by smaller independent dyers from the New Mexico area.
|Hand Dyed Yarns!|

The store has the most wonderful natural sun light throughout which is great for knitting!
