My Local Yarn Shop-Gourmet Yarn

A real yarn shop? In Israel? Pinch me-I must be dreaming (and I hope I don't wake up)! A real yarn shop? In Israel? Pinch me-I must be dreaming (and I hope I don't wake up)! A real yarn shop?

With all that yarn, you’d think that I’d never need to set foot inside a yarn shop. Well, that’s probably true, but since Orly’s opened this incredibly lovely yarn shop here in Israel, I still do my bit in supporting her.

If you come to Israel, you can find Orly’s Gourmet Yarn Shop in the heart of Ra’anana at 111 Ahuza St, in the little passageway next to Cafe Ahuza.

Yippeee! The Yarn Deprivation Zone (tm) no longer!

For lists of yarn shops in Israel, check out the “Tel Aviv Stitch ‘n Bitch” and “Yarn and Falafel” group pages on Ravelry. (Must be signed in to Ravelry to see this.) There may be more Israeli groups, but those are the ones I’m active in. :)

Other Knitterly Places I Hang Out:

Marion Poller’s knitting book reviews at Amazon: Let’s face it, next to yarn, most knitters also have a respectible knitting library to refer to for techniques and inspiration. Before I buy or order just about any knitting book (major, major investment here between shipping, Customs and local taxes), Marion’s reviews are the first place I check. Marion has been knitting for a long time and is proficient in just about every knitting style and technique there is. She’s a professional librarian and doesn’t mince words, so every book she reviews gets the review it deserves, luckily for us. And lucky for me she’s my neighbor. :)
