I'm currently in San Francisco, which is a good outlet for creative folks, but I am so very amped to moving to Portland in June 2008. I've done a lot of research online as far as finding LYS and such, but I do have a few questions.
Are there any stores that have an extensive (larger) selection of natural/sustainable yarns (bamboo, organic cotton, organic wool, alpaca ... etc)?
Are there any local knitting meet-ups (i.e. Stitch n' Bitch)? I've never been to one but I'd love to start doing so once I move.
Can't wait to meet you all!
