Knitwits Contemporary Yarn Shop
Even when classes or meetings aren't in session, visitors might easily discern that Knitwits Contemporary Yarn Shop is as much a hobby-community hub as a yarn store. The shop is dominated by a large round table and a jewel-toned stained-glass window that throws colorful light all over the homey vintage digs. Nearly every day of the week, the shop is full of knitters of all experience levels learning to make ruffled scarves or intricately patterned socks for hard-to-buy-for giftees with an odd number of feet. Shelves are piled with nearly as many patterns and project books as they are with yarns from dozens of makers, including lines made of boutique worsted wool and alpaca hair. A chalkboard sign announces the inspiring project of the week, and the outgoing staff will gladly suggest others.
