Jenning Street Yarns

Time for another yarn store review! I needed to get a few new yarns for upcoming projects and as I am not heading to Austin or Houston anytime soon, I decided to give a new yarn store in Fort Worth a try.

Not sure how I found Jenning Street Yarns, but I am glad I did.
Comfy chairs to the left, Pattern area to the right.
I must admit the store is a tiny bit hard to find, in that the area is not one of the more populated areas of Fort Worth. In terms of space, it must be similar in size to Madtosh, but is so much more densely packed that they have almost everything you could want! Even with their huge selection of yarn there was space with a large table for classes, a mini library of patterns and a table and chairs for that area, and a few comfy chairs.
Lots of books too, and clearance bins!
My list consisted of Cascade Heritage in Pine, a small bit of gold, Cascade Heritage in Black,
and something for a tunisian vest that I am learning to make from a Craftsy online class. I needed about 1200 yards of a worsted weight wool.
Very nice organization by colors and brand.
They did indeed have the Cascade in Pine, and the lady helped me find a lovely and cost-effective blue yarn for the vest in Encore Tweed in by Plymouth Yarns. I needed about 6 skeins to make sure I had enough, so the cost came in at about $50. Which is not bad at all!

I will for sure be back again! And check out the sentiment on the tote bag... certainly my kind of store.

PS: If you are wondering, I am still looking for a good black sock yarn, and I got a tiny skein of Madtosh fingering weight yarn in Dandelion for the "gold" while in Fort Worth.
