West 7th Wool is my local yarn shop…and my Kryptonite.
After I had begun learning to knit, and had an enormous stash of so-so yarns that I really wasn’t in love with, I began searching for a place to buy really GREAT fibers, ones that made me say, “Oooooh….yummy.”
Hunter and Amy are the owners of West 7th Wool, and they were so welcoming on my first visit. Lovingly displayed yarns were organized by weight and fiber, and there was even a section of gorgeous yarns made in Texas! I could dream up beautiful projects and feel the yarns and pair them together. Whoo, baby! Such luscious fibers! So many beautiful yarns to choose from. I literally wanted two of everything.
Alas, my bank account is not bottomless, and so I picked up 8 or 9 hanks of some Madeline Tosh, Yarn Carnival, and Twisted Owl yarns. Bonus: for every dollar you spend there, you get reward points that can be applied for a discount later. And, they will wind your yarn for you at no charge. Trust me, this is a huge deal. First of all, it is nearly impossible to knit from a hank of yarn. Winding is a must. Unless you have invested in a swift and a ball winder, you will not survive without this kind of help.
Hunter and Amy carry so many brands of yarns, beautiful and hard-to-find needles, notions, kits and they can download and print Ravelry patterns for you. Additionally, they offer classes, a Thursday knitting night, and cozy seating where you can drop in and just knit, or ask advice on a project.
