I thought I'd go ahead and post all the yarn shops I know about, with the thought that maybe this post could be put into the community memories. To save space, this will just be a list, but I'll put comments about the ones I've visited personally into the comments. Where they have a website, I've linked to it; where they don't, I've linked to the Google Local page with the address, phone, and map.
Nancy's Knits (Maps, etc.), Houston (Meyerland area) Edit: They've moved! Now at 5300 N. Braeswood, just down Chimney Rock from the prior location (Google map).
Yarns 2 Ewe, Houston (Heights) Edit: Brick-and-mortar location is closed; online shop is still open.
