We are Lynn and Lacey, an awesome mother and daughter dynamic duo with a love for all things yarn! We have owned Yarning for You since June of 2016 and it is more than just a yarn shop to us. It is a community of knitters, crocheters, and fiber art lovers. People are always welcome to come in and sit, knit, crochet, and most importantly make new friends. We encourage talking too loud, showing off how amazing your work is, and uproarious laughter.
We also love to discover independent and local dyers. It is so much fun to stop into yarn shops all around the country and see what all of these different artists have created. One of our favorite stories is how we found Raven Ridge. We were in West Yellowstone and stopped into a tiny yarn/quilt/needlepoint/curio/notary/post office shop and stumbled upon this phenomenal yarn. We contacted Rickie at Raven Ridge, she is the sweetest person ever, and the rest is yarn history. You never know what you’re going to find when you go exploring.
During most of my ill spent youth you could find me surfing at the beach. The little time I did spend inside, I would sew clothes for my Barbie. I never did get around to making anything for Ken, I gave him to the dog as a chew toy. Later I progressed to quilting. The infinite possibilities I could design with the colors and patterns really spoke to me. The only drawback was that it was solitary. I wanted something I could do in a social setting. Along came knitting. I took a class with my daughter a number of years ago and the rest is knitting history. Since then I have been lucky enough to take several classes from Master Teachers. I find sharing my love for knitting with others extremely rewarding. Besides, it beats teaching Kindergarteners computer skills. Eek! My sincerest wish is that when you walk into Yarning for You, you feel my love of yarns, knitting, and community.
I love knitting because it is such a phenomenal art form. You can create so many wonderful things while learning about and immersing yourself in the beautiful, unique, colorful, innovative world of yarn. I take lots of classes and learn amazing things from all of the glorious I people I meet in the shop. Plus, I get to hang out with my Mom. I guess she’s kind of cool. Two of her favorite movies are Predator and Aliens. We actually learned to knit together and now we own Yarning for You, which is the best! We’ll work together every day, all day. Forever. Wait, isn’t that how people end up in jail for matricide? Sigh.
