Room6 in Deep Cove

This morning I drove up to gorgeous Deep Cove in North Vancouver with a big pile of yarn to meet Megan, the owner of [Room6](http://www.room6.com), and her cute dog, August. An hour later, I left the shop with a much, much smaller pile!

Room6 is a lovely and eclectic boutique right near the waterfront in Deep Cove and carries clothing, jewelry, accessories, books (like [surfer magazine's Guide to Northern and Central California Surf Spots](http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0811849988)) artwork and gifts made from local designers and artists. Megan also carries knitting yarn that is altogether different from what you find at most yarn shops in town — she has Magic Balls from Be Sweet, Ozark Handspun, organic cottons from Blue Sky Alpacas, and she’s also the only shop in Canada to carry Suss yarns (you know, Suss from Hollywood Knits). And now, she has some SweetGeorgia Yarn too!

Ah, and being so close to the waterfront made me want to get back on the water again…

    Isn’t that interesting?! I love the concept of the Room6. Maybe my city needs one of those shops. Definitely gives me ideas.

    I love Room6 and Megan! I taught a class out there a few months back, and it was a ton of fun. Totally worth the hour-long drive. :)

    That sounds like a really fun store to shop in. Good to hear about your surfing, hope you get to go again soon.

    Room6 is one of my must-stop-at places on the the North Shore. It’s always different everytime I go in. I’m so glad to hear we’ll be seeing more of your yarns around the city.

    Congrats on a new stockist :-)
    Surfing can be addictive! I’m a windsurfer myself and you can always tell us from the rest – we are the ones praying for wind (even if it mean rain as well).

    Hey Sweet Georgia I’m coming over to your neck of the woods in September! I’m hoping to drive up by Deep Cove and over to the Island by a roundabout route to see as much of that superb coastal scenery as possible. Love your weblog. Drop by mine for a taste of Ireland some evening (well, you’re good on the Arans, aren’t you?) Where is absoutely your favourite yarn store in and around Vancouver?
