For a visit at least and I was wondering about yarn shops.
I've been in Texas for awhile, so have all the yummy yarnness that are the local yarn shops around here, but I cannot remember if there is anything around Mandan.
I can remember buying yarn at the Ben Franklin on Main (is it still there?) or at KMart in Bismarck with my mom when I was younger.  I don't remember there being any stores dedicated to crocheters/knitters/ everything yarn and fiber.
Is there anything yet?  I'm visiting the parents, and attending a friends wedding, over the 4th of July.  And since I have made it a habit to try to find yarn shops in every city I travel to (Seattle has too many to choose from and Las Vegas only has two!)...
I can't find anything on the internet, and Mom hasn't heard anything.
So, anyone know?  Please?

Im way over on the other side of the state, so i cant help, but if you get to fargo (and i know youre here like...now so this may be of absolutly no help) you should hit yarn rennisance and knitty gritty cafe.

Thanks for the heads up about Fargo.  I take a straight north approach going from Texas to Bismarck which tends to bypass that side of the state.  But I'm going to be in the Twin Cities for a Conference next year and plan on taking a quick trip west to visit the parents.  And what do you know, I pass right through Fargo. Smiley
But, if you are ever over in Bismarck, I can recommend two shops: Urban Girl and Impact.  Both are on Broadway, between 2nd and 4th.  Basically it's about two blocks north of Main, so if you are ever in Bismarck, it's actually not too difficult to find.
Both shops have a small selection of yarns, but good ones.  And as a bonus, Urban Girl is also a beading shop.  I was able to pick up some beads that are shaped like dragons.  And left them at the parents.  hehe.  I should be getting them back on Monday.
And Impact has a lot of Classic Elite and Berocco.  And an interesting yarn I haven't run into around here by Schaefer Yarns.  Their sock yarn color ways are amazing.  I think it's also in the Fargo shop.

we have an urban girl too. i think its just the two locations, but i LOVE it. when ever i need jewelry for a specific occasion i jump on that place. we just got a small selection of yarn, i have a HUGE stash, but what i really like is they have a full selection of needles. we (grand forks) have a ben franklin and a michaels, and neither have a decent needle selection.

"size eight 16'' rounds...well... we have these size six dpns...thats almost the same right"
ok not really a direct quote, but thats what i feel like when i have to go in there.
