In the past two years, both of the knitting shops in Salem, OR. closed down. A state capitol without a knitting shop is ridiculous. (We don't have a Whole Foods or Trader's Joes' either, but that's fodder for another rant.)
The new store is called Tangled Purls. It's in a little space on Commercial street, about 4.5 miles from my home (yea!!!)
If you live in the area, it's well worth a visit. Lots' of interesting yarns, and tons of books and patterns.
