A Crochet Friendly Yarn Shop in Eugene!

While visiting my family in Oregon, I enjoy visiting local yarn stores.  The Knit Shop in Eugene, is usually my first stop.  Even though their shop name sounds a little biased toward knitters, it is actually a very crochet friendly shop.  I was thrilled when I saw the sign below in their window, as I had no idea that Interweave offered these to yarn shops!  

I decided to see how crochet friendly they were, by going into the shop and asking about their book and hook selection.  I pretty much made it known that crochet was bringing me into their store.  I was pleased to see that they have many of the latest best selling crochet books, as well as several back issues of Interweave Crochet.  When I looked at the hook selection, I saw some interesting Addi Swing ergonomic hooks that I had never seen before.  I already have Etimo hooks that I love, up to size "J", so I enquired if they come in any sizes larger than that.  The owner even went so far as to check the company's website to make sure that they didn't.  I definitely felt welcome in this shop as a crocheter.  If you are ever in Eugene, you may want to stop by.  From now on, I will be on the lookout for the Interweave signs in yarn shop windows!


  1. Great post! It's always nice to hear about crochet friendly LYS's. I had the pleasure of visiting one in Fort Worth, Texas yesterday. Such a treat after being in the office all day!

  2. Thanks for pointing out that signage - didn't know about it either!

  3. That's super cool! Now if only there was a LYS in my area... LOL!
