We arrived at Woodland Woolworks and then got a little concerned because the sign on the door still said closed. Turns out they were having a rough Monday - broken window, computer sparking and dying, that this was minor but a concern that customers may not have come inside because of the sign. Hazel got her first mini-tour of the place - sale room and the yarn/fiber room. No wheel room visit. There's a pretty Ashford Charka available if anyone has $200. I purchased my bulky/plying head and Rachel got some very soft Targhee to spin with.
We then headed for McMinnville and their nicely restored historic downtown area for lunch at a place Rachel had been to before - Sage. Nice restaurant above a store with soups, sandwiches and homemade bread. From there we walked a few blocks to the knitting store I've heard great things about - Boersma's. All the great things are richly deserved! Nice selections of yarn in easy to see displays and a wide variety too. We were amazed in some of the sizes of yarns too:
