I went to Hill Country Weavers last time I was in Austin and loved it! Not HUGE, but a decent selection of different yarns, mostly wool. It's also in one of my favorite neighborhoods in town, bonus. http://www.hillcountryweavers.com/main.php

HCW is the best. . . .i don't know what i'd do without it. . .. maybe save some money.

I third going to Hill Country Weavers. It's in an old house, which is typical for Austin, so it may be tighter in there spacewise, than a normal store. But I like it, it feels like being at a friend's house.

See, if I opened my own shop, it'd be like being at my house.  Coffee available, nice comfortable places to sit and knit, lots of selection, etc.

Thanks for all the ideas, folks!!  I'm going to have fun looking and buying!!

the Yarn Barn in SA fo sho! If you make it into Ft Worth from Dallas check out Jennings Street yarn. Sympatico in Bedford is nice as well (between Ft Worth and dallas). Havent been to HCW in austin but have heard nothing but nice things  Grin Stay away from Yarn Heaven in arlingotn. I have heard nothing but awful accounts of that ladies legendary biotchiness....  Undecided

I agree with that Jenn above - avoid Yarn Heaven in Arlington at all costs - we actually call it "Yarn Hell." I've never been to the dallas stores but have heard all those good things about Woolie Ewe. Simpatico is my local favorite, and Hill Country is nice, but be aware - we drove right by it the first time! Usually crowded, but great selection and friendly people.

I don't know if you'll go by Ft Worth when you're in Dallas, but if so Cabbage Rose off Montgomery has a lot of yarn and fabric.  There's also Yarn Ewnique (sp?) off Camp Bowie.  There's also a yarn store in Bedford (which is right between Dallas and Ft Worth) but I can't recall the name or street right now.

actually, i've been to yarn heaven at least 25 or more times and everytime they treat me with great respect! i never have any complaints except for the 45 minute drive from where i live, justin. there's the yarn and stitches in plano(they have an amazing selection of crystal palace needles, but they're kinda bitchy sometimes), desert design knitz in dallas, yarn 2 ewe in houston, and the stitching post in midland. i'm more of a sewing person, but my mother is an extremely passionate knitter so i've been with her to all of these shops and they're great, and i'm sure if i ask, she'll tell me some more.

Ooo. What's their stock usually like? Lots and lots of high-end stuff or more of a mixed bag? In other words, I can't afford $10+ a skein, would they have things for me? I would judge by their proximity to SMU (Smoo!) they might cater some to poor college students.....
