Shop Spotlight: Ball & Skein & More

I’m delighted to spotlight this wonderful shop and supporter of my knit alongs.  Here is how owners Kris and Oz describe their unique fiber destination:

Since 1978, the Ball & Skein & More has been a destination for fiber lovers from all across the country. We’re obviously excited about celebrating 40 years as a yarn shop next year! Were located in the small town of Cambria, California which is exactly between Los Angeles and San Francisco, rightpon the Pacific Ocean. We’re open 7 days a week from 10 to 5 PST, as well as on-line. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is ready to help you find your next project. Find us in Cambria at 4210 Bridge street on the corner of Bridge and Main in Cambria’s historic East Village, or on line at

If you are in the area, stop in to Ball & Skein & more to pick up your Llamor yarn for my Burien Cowl (below)!

Burien Cowl

Named for a beautiful town on Puget Sound, this cowl checks all the boxes:

√ simple to master
√ interesting to knit
√ stylishly warm
√ super soft

The stitch pattern resembles weaving for a textured appearance. Knit as a tube and seamlessly grafted, this a no-wrong sides piece that is effortless to wear.

Burien features Llamor by Hikoo.  In Spanish, amor means love, and you will fall in love with this 100% Baby Llama yarn.  Made in Peru, the fiber is de-haired leaving only the ultra-soft undercoat to be spun into this striking yarn. Lightweight, soft, and springy, this yarn works up beautifully  into elegant warm-winter items.
