The shop is a perfect spot in the heart of the San Fernando Valley where a skein of yarn becomes a-major-knit wearable, snuggable, or giftable.

We are grateful that you continue to support our local yarn shop. We don't just sell materials. We're also here with instruction, technical support, and friendship. Studies have shown that knitting and crocheting are good for your mental health, so we provide excellent therapy too!

We're located near Lake Balboa Birmingham High School on the SE corner of Balboa and Vanowen in a strip shopping center behind the Jack-in-the-Box. There is plenty of parking and easy freeway access to both the Ventura (101) and San Diego (405) freeways.
