I'm in Salem, the state capitol with no LYS, where are you? Several members are living in Portland, and a few further south. Think there are several on the coast also.

I live about 20 minutes from Portland. And you really don't have an LYS?

When we moved here, there were two, now there are none. McMinnville has a decent one, and I love Yarn Garden in Portland, but nothing here.

I won't buy yarn from places like Michaels or Hobby Lobby, because I'm a bit of a yarn snob. Since Portland is a frequent stop, it doesn't hurt me to find the nearest shop and run my fingers through the bins of yarn.

I buy from Michaels quite a bit, but I mostly buy needles from there because they are pretty cheep there. My LYS is pretty expensive, so as soon as I run out of yarn I'm going to check out Yarn Garden and Happy Knits since there 2 blocks away from eachother.

I'll never run out of yarn, not going to happen because I was given a bunch when a friend passed away. Sent a huge box (or was it two) to Shendah last year for charity knitting, and still have two boxes full.

Yarn Garden really needs a visit from me

WOW!! I have about 6 balls. Not a lot of yarn. And I keep my yarn and needles and scissors etc in my ugg boot shoebox under my bed. I really need a basket, but I haven't yet found one the right size with a lid to protect it from a curious kitty cat named Hurley.

Omg, the LYS in Salem are gone? Dang... I wonder if the farm ones nearish Portland and just across the river near Vancouver, WA are still there... Well, not living in Oregon or SW WA right now but have most of my life and might end up back there.. I will be visiting this summer!
