Well, another obvious reason why I loved Happy Knits is that they carry Louisa Harding yarns! The shop is well stocked with an array of Louisa's newer yarns.
I can't do a Portland review without mentioning my other two favorite stores in Portland:
Close Knit in the Alberta Arts District
Knit Purl in the Pearl District.
I always manage to snag a few great finds at both stores and love the friendly, expert service at both stores.
If you get a chance to visit Portland, I hope you visit my favorite shops and
be sure to tell them that Lisette in California sent you!
