Founded by licensed therapist Dr. Stacey, Knit One focuses on the communal and therapeutic aspects of knitting, serving as a hub where scarves, sweater vests, and other body-part covers materialize from brandished needles. Balls of yarn unravel in small classes, where students let the day's stress melt away like a bag of ice cubes dumped onto a blimp’s overheating flight controls as socks, headbands, and tea cozies come into fruition. Knit One’s orange and marigold walls—filled to the brim with yarn in every color imaginable—also house knitting groups, including a group for new moms and the Charity Knitting group, which crafts items such as caps for chemo patients.
