A bit on Happy Knits background:

In 2005, Miss Sarah relocated from Virginia to Portland and the yarny world would soon happily expand because of it. She revisited her knitting background not long after her arrival to the Rose City and eventually converted her love for the hobby into the building of her own cozy yarn shop. Her favorite thing about the development process with Happy Knits? "Getting to make my idea of what a perfect yarn store is," she says. "It's my own version of what it should be."
