Knit is located in the historic village of Roslyn at 1353 Old Northern Blvd. The shop is a “hidden gem” nestled on the side porch of our building. Crafters are welcome to come and sit at our tables where new friendships are made and old friends get together. We like to call our store the “Cheers” of knitting stores, the place where everyone knows your name. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is always available to help you.
The first Wednesday of each month is Knit Nite from 7-9pm. Bring dinner and spend the evening knitting and crocheting with people who share your enthusiasm.
This year, we have started “The Shawl Club”. Every 4-6 weeks, we start a new shawl knit-along. Each one features a different yarn which gives you an opportunity to try something new. Our next featured shawl will be Architexture by Jennifer Weissman and we will be knitting it in Araucania Huasco Heathers. Pick up the yarn during the crawl and be ready when we start on May 4th and May 5th.
Yarn Crawl Highlights:
- We have been very busy designing new pieces for this year. We have new store patterns for both the knitter and the crocheter. We will be featuring new patterns for hats, cowls and baby sweaters in brand new kits.
- During the crawl, we are lucky to have a new indie dyer trunk shows from Cozy Color Works. Sandy, the force behind the yarn, will be in the shop on Friday and Saturday to talk with you.
- Have you seen Wollmeise Yarns from Germany? As the only shop on Long Island carrying this yarn, it’s a great opportunity to see this beautiful yarn.
- Anne Canadeo, the author of Black Sheep & Company Mysteries will be at the shop on Saturday. Stop by and talk with her and your story might be in her next book. If you have a copy of one of her books, bring it along and she’ll be happy to sign it.
- Have you tried Lykke needles? We carry the full range of Lykke needles and hooks, including all kits and extra cords.
- Saturday, April 21st is Local Yarn Store Day. We will be celebrating with surprise special events throughout the day.
- Keeping with our yarn crawl tradition, we will be hosting a wine and cheese party on Friday night from 6:00 to 8:00pm. Stop by to unwind after a day of crawling!
