Best Knit Shop Ever!

A few years ago I lived on Hawthorne and I was interested in learning how to knit, so I went to a yarn store that was very close to my house, walked in and asked the ladies who were sitting there knitting if they taught any classes and that I was interested in learning how to knit. They gave me a very discriminating look and answered yes in a tone that asked me to politely leave. I did. That knit shop is on Hawthorne very close to 17th St. I left and never went back. A few years later I stumbled across The NS Knit Shop after breakfast, went in and asked if they taught knitting. I was a little nervous, due to my past experience, but I was greeted warmly and given information on ALL the classes they offered. On my way out the door there were two ladies on the front sofa knitting and laughing, they engaged me in conversation, told me that I would love it there and invited me to come to knit night. They eluded to how much fun it was and that it got a little knotty at times. Just my type of crowd. I took Learn to Knit from Cheri. She made is so easy and fun. You have gotta love this women. She is a person that makes you want to be a better person. Kind, friendly and ALWAYS willing to help when you need it and her husband ""Vice President Of Everything"" Brad is just as great. This was a little over two years ago and I am still going to knit night almost every Thursday. I did a yarn crawl about a year ago and also learned that The NS has very competitive pricing on the yarns they carry. That coupled with the warm and inviting atmosphere, the great customer service and the love of knitting keeps me loyal. I love this place and you will too.
It is bike friendly, gay friendly, straight friendly, age friendly, guy friendly, dog friendly, all kinds of friendly. I have made friends for life here.""

My favorite yarn shop in Portland!

These girls really know about knitting and they are helpful and willing to assist even newbies like me. All the staff go out of their way to offer help and they do it in a way that doesn't make you feel dumb, or afraid to ask. They have a great selection, cozy comfortable couches, and a nice classroom. This is my favorite yarn store in Portland! If you want to enjoy knitting and be with friendly ladies who know their stuff, this is the place.
