Knitting by Judy @ 10:34 AM

I’ve lived on the Portland metro west side for 25 years (and in the general Portland area even longer). And all of that time I’ve been involved in some kind of crafty stuff — knitting, crochet, hand spinning (poorly), needlepoint, sewing, quilting, yadda yadda yadda. Until this weekend I never knew that there was a great yarn store right here in Tigard — and I’ve passed by it every day on my way home from work for the last 8 years.

All About Yarn is located near the corner of Pacific Hwy and Greenburg Rd., right underneath Joanne Fabrics in the Safeway shopping center. Joanne’s I’ve been to with regularity. I had no idea there was anything underneath it. Turns out there’s a whole little mall down there. All About Yarn is apparently the former Ann’s Yarn Gallery (also never graced by my presence), and has been under its current management since 2003.

I spent a fun 30 minutes in All About Yarn browsing through the shelves. I would have liked to stay longer, but other duties called. In the end, I picked up some really nice baby alpaca in dark gray for #1 Son’s fingerless gloves.

I can already tell that I’m going to have to fight my car to keep it pointed down Pacific Hwy. when I come to that corner…
