Anchorage, Alaska, we're going up.
Hey anyone in Alaska have a favorite yarn shop that I need see? We're going to Anchorage for a week at the end of this month to visit family.

Please tell what shop(s) I need to go to.

i have no idea about yarn shops in anchorage, but you can take me with you!!

i just googled it and found this. anchorage has four times as many yarn shops as the capital of north carolina. FOUR!!! what's wrong with this picture? of course, i'm totally not complaining about even more incentive to make my way up north to the great untouched wilderness again!

AWwwwww We just got back to Washington on Saturday!!! I did go to Knitting Grounds a couple times!!! I bought some Alaska Fiber N' Ice (1240 yardsDK weight), one of them HUGE skeins! Then some Malabrigo, Top of the Lamb as well!!! When we go back up I will go there again!!! I wish I could have stayed for the 10 o'clock knitting group on Friday!!!

The shop owner was very friendly! Tell her Erika from the Olympia area says hi!!! The shawl I made with the Malabrigo knitted up very nice!!!

I also went to The Yarn Branch but wasn't thrilled. Loved their selection of Cascade 220 though.
