Hi Lostkiwi....I'm in Joshua Tree and there are NO yarn shops in the Morongo Basin. There was one when I moved here, but the owner got sick and moved back east near family. I figured it was because business was bad, but several knitters have told me that she did very well here. If that's true, I wonder why no one else has opened a yarn store?
Not looking forward to the long drive, but I'm itching to check out Yarn Deli soon. I've heard there's a really nice, newer Jo-Ann's in Redlands too, so I'll have to hit that too.
So, you're in Phelan. Have you been to that yarn shop in Apple Valley - Fanciwerks (I think)? It's next door to a quilt shop that I did visit, but I didn't have time to go into the yarn shop. I know, sacrilege. :lol:
