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
love of the craft.
There’s always something
new going on at Knit: knit-a-longs, classes, trunk shows, bingo night. Be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook
@knitlongisland to see our latest projects and keep up with what’s happening at
the shop. Sign up for our newsletter at www.knitlongisland.com.
Yarn Crawl Highlights
We have been very busy designing new pieces for this year and making new samples. We will be featuring new patterns and have several new kits.
We are excited to be hosting a trunk show, Cozy Colorworks, again this year. She’s bringing with her new colorways in some of our favorite yarns and lot of new samples. Sandy, the force behind the yarn, will be in the shop to talk with you and help you with your yarn selection.
This year we will be hosting a trunk show of Tika project bags. Theses fabric bags have a clear section so you can see what project you have inside.
Stop by Knit on Friday and Saturday from 3pm to 4pm for a mid-afternoon treat of cookies and desserts.
Start your crawling on Saturday and Sunday morning with bagels and coffee at the shop.
Try knitting or crocheting with Lykke needles and hooks. We’re sure you’ll love them as much as we do. We carry the full range of Lykke needles and hooks, including kits and extra tips and cords.
