At one point we decided that Portland housed all the yarn shops so they could hog the fiber tourism.
We found Gossamer Yarns in Bend to be a fabulous shop with great staff, a fun bathroom with cool wallpaper and the best bike in town.
And the largest selection of Lamb's Pride Brown Sheep yarn I have ever seen.
The big find was the Freia yarn that was featured for a super cute sweater that one of my traveling partners wanted to knit but could not get the yarn because it was so popular. I even bought a skein for a shawl cowl that I will show you more about later.
