I had to decide on one store to visit because unfortunately the family we were visiting are not fiber people so do not understand the need to visit more than one yarn store at a time. So looking for a yarn store that sells fiber was a quick way to narrow down the choices when researching LYSs in a new city. It might not be the best yarn store, but when you can’t compare stores because they don’t have websites (why don’t they have websites?!), it’s a shot in the dark anyway.*
When I first walked into Rainbow Yarns and Fibers, I thought I’d missed my target.
|Well, it has some yarn.|
| There was a place to sit and knit, and probably take classes.|
|There were these fun felted hats for sale, right next to the sidekick I wanted to take home.|
|Magazines and more yarn!|
|The register had buttons all around.|
|I've struck fiber!|
|Isn't it pretty?|
Blanket update: Five more rows of garter stitch, bind off and block. Should be done tonight or tomorrow.
*I found out about a great yarn store in downtown Oxford that we missed because they don’t have an online presence. Oh well, guess we’ll have to go back.
