I'm also the knitting guru for my local stitch n bitch at PSU. We meet on Wednesdays at the PSU women's center from 12- whenever I get tired. We're open to everyone, not just students so feel free to stop by.

What isn't around here for knitters? There's tons of places to get awesome yarn on Portland. There are also lots of knitting circles/clubs, I actually heard about this from feministmama's Stich N' Bitch, and that's a really good place to meet cool knitter's who can help and teach you pretty much whatever you want.

I live just outside the metro area towards the coast. Knitting Bee on West Union rd is my fave place. Boersma's in McMinville is a great shop too if you're out that way. Just found this site...too cooool!

Welcome to PDX!
There's a ton of really fine yarn shops in Portland. My fave is The Knitting Bee. It's in the little shopping center at the intersection of 185th & West Union rd in sw Portland. You can go down hwy 26(towards the coast) & go right off the 185th exit to West Union rd. . There's another called the Farm House on Farmington road that has beautiful yarn that's arranged by color. It's like walking into a fabulous rainbow. Take a left off the 185th exit & drive till you come to Farmington, then left again. The Farmhouse will be on your right(a mile or 2 in an actual house)down the road. Fellow PDX'ers, some of the other shops ??? :thinking:

Hope you have a great time while you're in town! Let us know which ones you go to. I wouldn't mind exploring a new shop myself
