The knowledgeable knitters at Yarnhouse unlock the world of woven creations for loopers of all levels by proffering a parade of colorful yarns, notions, and other knitting and crocheting supplies. Say no to north-wind bullying by crafting a neck-shielding scarf using Cascade 220 ($6.60) or Noro Silk Garden ($11.99) yarns. Or, earn approving whistles from trendy tea kettles by creating a cozy out of Araucania Trauco cashmere ($30). Crafters can coif eco-conscious ensembles using Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy fibers ($7), or with Debbie Bliss Pure Cotton, which provides a soft clothing cocoon without the stress of unraveling cotton balls ($6.50). Yarnhouse also stocks an assortment of patterns, knitting needles and crochet hooks (starting at $6), and yarn bowls ($35) to help facilitate pleasingly plaited formations.
In addition to its weave-able wares, the knitting shop also plays host to free knit-and-crochet circles. Kicking off every Sunday at 1 p.m., the circles create a fun and communal space where interlacers can show off work, make friends, and swap tales of dropping stitches off the Empire State Building.
