A good first stop on your knitting shop scavenger hunt is the brightly colored haven in Henderson Center, Yarn.

Foggy Bottoms Yarns

Expect a warm welcome — and a roaring fire in the winter — at Foggy Bottoms Yarns. Jackie Ramirez, who's owned the shop for two decades, keeps an empty chair by her own for anybody who needs a little help. She also gives one-on-one lessons if you're looking to hone your skills. Along with yarns, the shop is stocked with supplies for all sorts of thread-centric arts, including embroidery, cross stitch, tatting and needlepoint. Don't miss the wooden yarn holders her son makes by hand from maple and mahogany.
