I've already gone to the two in Missoula: Loopy and Joseph's Coat.
We both had a day off yesterday so we drove to Helena! There are two LYS there, Y'arnings and Mountain Spun. I had never been to downtown Helena and it was so neat! I love how their walking mall is completely by foot only (no cars!) and has tables, chairs, and sculptures. It's definitely tourist-based, but it still looks nice. There weren't very many people around so it was relaxing to just walk around.
Y'arnings wasn't open, but the owner left a nice table with information and the stamp out.
I love this yarn over the doorway to Y'arnings!
Mountain Spun was beautiful! A really neat space. I bought some Cascade 220 orange yarn there, for the rainbow scarf I have planned in my head. I also received a free pattern from the owner, for being a part of the Shop Hop! It's a bolero-type shrug, and I'm pretty excited to knit it!
After we had reached our yarn destinations, we walked around the other stores. We bought three harmonicas at a cute store called Lasso the Moon, as well as a fuzzy thing for Berny.

And homage to my favorite old women.
