This is the perfect neighborhood knitting store. It's small and comfortable, but has an amazing selection considering the size. Though the staff can sometimes be terse, they are always helpful.

Having always shopped at Twisted on Broadway, I was used to encountering helpful and upbeat salespeople. Recently I visited Close Knit at the recommendation of a friend. I have stopped in a couple times; both instances, I was not greeted when I entered the store and the sales staff (two salespeople where there) were cold and aloof. I was also surprised that the merchandise was pricier than I have seen elsewhere. I felt uncomfortable in the store and will not be patronizing this business again. There are so many wonderful knit shops in Portland--I would suggest bringing your business to another, more worthy local business.

Pros: high end yarn

Cons: expensive! and aloof salespeople

Was treated very rudely when purchasing yarn. The store is very expensive and cramped. Didn't know using a coupon would give me a dirty look.

I love spending time in this little shop, owned and run by a beautiful mother! Her yard selection is to die for. So many soft fibers, bright and earthy to choose from. The staff is knowledgeable and very helpful. they even have a punch card!! Classes are offered and knitting circles.

I wandered into Close Knit one blustery afternoon, and was pleasantly surprised to find a store stuffed with good yarn and books. The people who work there are friendly and knowledge-able, and have great taste in yarn.

Pros: Nice Yarn and Books, Friendly and smart personnel

Cons: Store is overstuffed, which I like, but some might not.
