Scarlet Skein Moves to New Location

May 11

The local knitting clan was a collective nervous wreck during the twelve days our local yarn store was closed during its move to a  new location. When would we see each other again? How would we feed our yarn addiction? Aack!

The move has proven to be worth the temporary withdrawal symptoms. Tracy McKay, ower of the Scarlet Skein, turned a lovely space in downtown Paso Robles into knitters’ new home-away-from-home. Tracy’s knack for interior decorating makes the space colorful and welcoming.


 Check out the chandeliers. Are they not gorgeous?


Cozy seating areas are sprinkled throughout the store, while the brick wall lends historic ambience.


If you’re really lucky, you’ll be greeted by Abby the Fiber Dog. What she lacks in knitting skills she makes up for in cuteness and a sweet disposition. (She’s paid in hugs, surreptitious scraps and chewy toys.)


If you find yourself in the Central Coast area of California (that’s halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco along Highway 101), come check out the Scarlet Skein. You can catch a class, munch pizza while watching a movie during Chick Flick night, and find a gathering of  knitting friends. Oh yeah, you’ll find a great selection of yarn, too!

    It looks like such a beautiful store and I LOVE the idea of a yarn dog. 🙂

    If I’m ever across the country in CA, I know where I’m shopping!
