Nope, not a yarn-based tragedy, but rather a yarn shop near Anchorage!
In spite of this shop being in the next town over (Eagle River, for those familiar with Anchorage and its environs), I have never been to this shop until today. We have some perfectly good yarn shops in Anchorage, so it hasn’t been necessary. However, my Mom and I were in Eagle River visiting one of her favorite quilt/fabric shops today, and this place just happens to be less than a mile away. So off we went!
It is a small-ish shop, but has a decent amount of stock, and is very well laid out. They have a really nice area to sit and knit inside, as well as a patio out back that is setup for knitting and relaxing.
They have a good supply of dyed-in-Alaska yarn and fibers and Alaskan made notions, as well as a reasonable supply of regular yarn. It’s not a huge place, so they don’t have a huge stock, but they have a good range. They have plain workhorse yarns like Ella Rae, and fancy yarns like Malabrigo and Noro. They also have a small selection of knitting books and magazines and a great array of needles/hooks and buttons.
All in all, a nice yarn shop!
