Ok, my other half and I will be making our way thru TX next month.  We're going ALL over TX, literally.

Our travels will take us to:
Lubbock (a few days)
San Antonio (maybe a night)
Austin (probably a drive-thru to see friends)
Houston (most likely just a night)
Dallas (a few days)

Are there any yarn shops that are not to be missed??

Apologies for cross-post in the Texas forum...

Definitely check out the Yarn Barn in San Antonio. They have a TON of books. The staff is very helpful and they have lots of nice yarn.

I haven't gotten a chance to go there yet but my friend tells me that the Woolie Ewe, in Plano, (within steps of Dallas) is apparently a super awesome store... I hear the clearance section is like a yarn store in itself.  (dunno where you're from but I'm in Oklahoma and there isn't a huge selection of yarn stores-the ones we have are a little small.)

I also recommend the Yarn Barn for San Antonio. Good luck finding yarn shops across Texas! Happy hunting.

Seconding the Woolie Ewe - Staff's friendly and helpful, the selection's great, and the clearance section is awesome.

Also, The Shabby Sheep is nice. Smaller place, but everyone's very friendly and the selection of higher-end yarns is awesome (Lots of Alpaca. Mmmmmm)

i would rec. that you stay AWAY from yarn & stitches and from passionknit, both in dallas

the woolie ewe and the shabby sheep are both bigger, plus they understand the concept of simple manners in addition to actual customer service. something that most certainly can not be said about the other two.

If you happen to get blown off course and end up in College Station, the Hook and Needle is just off of South College (by the Chicken Oil Company, ask anyone and they can tell you where THAT is XD)
