Have you had the pleasure of stopping in at one of the Urban Yarn shops?
With two locations, it is very possible to get at least one in on a shopping expedition to Vancouver. I remember that the first one I visited was the point Grey location, and I recall thinking how well-lit and open it felt, even with all the colourful yarns everywhere. Bigger than it seems from the front, there is so much stock to look over make sure not to get stuck….. get to the back too.
The selection of tools and notions is pretty amazing, From wool washes in the latest scents, and an amazing selection of the top needles.
The shop in North Vancouver is such a snug contrast. A smaller space, the dark wood and cozy chairs make it a totally different experience. Just as full of great yarns and neat notions. We picked up some fun lapel pins along with our yarn when last there. Check out the website and her blog for more information and a peek at what the owner is knitting! Don’t forget to make one of them a Yarn Harvest stop for sure!
