I like Far North Yarn Co, in Spenard, across from the Bear Tooth Theatre Pub (where everyone should eat at least once).  I've also heard good things about Knitting Grounds on Dimond, but haven't made it out there, yet.

Have fun in Anchortown!  Hopefully we'll have nice weather again by your trip instead of the beautiful liquid sunshine we've got this evening!

If you venture out to the Valley you have to hit Fantastic Fibers in Palmer. The best selection up here, IMHO. Smiley

hi
thanks for your posts - ended up the top of the highway wasn't ready for traffic - so went to skagway instead and to my most pleasant surprize found more than one wool shop! with really great lush selection
my favourite purchase has to be the teal merino wool by Raven Frog (dyed in Siska) sooooooooooo beautiful!

Knitting Grounds is my favorite in Anchorage.  It is off of Dimond on 92nd ave.  Zaynab is so nice, and they are open til 10 on Fridays, and lots of folks come out and we knit and tempt each other with new patterns and ideas.  I'll be there next week, come out and join us it's a blast.  Lots of different age groups, too.

rely a bit too heavily on alcohol and irony.

I'm orginally from Anchorage, but haven't been back in awhile, I'm coming home next week and wanted to hit up some local yarn stores. I'd like to find Zaynab, cuz I like any place that is open late, what part of town is it in? I'm sure I can find Knitting Grounds, since my folks live off of Dimond and Old Seward. Do these places have moderately priced stuff too? I'm already spending a small fortune to fly up during tourist season (from Las Vegas, where I live now.) so I know I'm going to be broke.

Zaynab is the name of the Lady that runs (owns) The Knitting Grounds
