JulieMustKnit and I finished visiting all 25 stores in the 2014 North Puget Sound LYS Crawl today. We were joined by Skeinherder as we visited the last 3 shops on the Crawl.
5633 California Ave SW
Seattle, WA 98136
This is a wonderful shop. It is quite large, and has a huge selection of great yarns. There are wonderful big windows in the front, bringing in the light.
I asked the owner if that was a seasonal thing, and she explained that she has some regular patrons with wool allergies, and so she made sure to have a good selection on hand for them. That is true LYS service. This shop is big enough, that she can have a large selection of these non-wool yarns, but still have a great selection of wool yarns, as well.
The free patterns were a Knit cowl that uses Autumn Wind Hand Dyed Print by Lotus. And, a lacy Crochet Shawl that is hooked in Araucania Azco Izis.
I liked the cowl more than the shawl.
There is a small parking lot in front of the store.

So Much Yarn
1525 First Ave. #4
Seattle, WA 98101
So Much Yarn has moved to a new space right across the street from the Pike Place Market. (I will now promote my children's book, Salt and Pepper at the Pike Place Market).
The new store is bigger and has so much light!
Churchmouse Yarns & Teas
118 Madrone Ln
Bainbridge Island, WA 98110
They have a wonderful selection of terrific yarns, but it is also something about how they group and display the yarns.
I hope my posts about this crawl encourage you to try the crawl yourself, next year. It is tons of fun, and you can really see how lucky we are to live in Washington where we have the most amazing Local Yarn Shops.
