There's a New Knit Shop in Town  

Sunday, April 22, 2007

There is a new knitting shop in Old Town Arvada.

Knit Knacks*Yarn Shop *Gathering Place*Coffee Bar
Owner: Gerri Bragdon
7505 A Grandview Ave Arvada, CO 80002

All I can say is Woo Hoo!

Saturday was field trip day. First a group from the Arvada Knits met at the Bliss Cafe in Old Town Arvada for a nice lunch.

Judy and Cheryl finished their Buttery Autumn sweaters and showed them off. Judy taught the sweater class at Cottage Yarn. Their sweaters were made out of Donnegal Tweed and they were absolutely beautiful.
Leah and her daughter Ashley showed off their Namaste bags. I think they hold just a little bit of knitting and supplies. I loved the Bliss Cafe. The food was great. I had an apple & brie sandwich that was to die for. It was my kind of place. The artwork was interesting.After lunch we went to Knit Knacks, just a couple of doors down from the Bliss Cafe. The store was fairly well stocked for being new. I hear there are new items arriving daily. If they don't have something you want, they will order it for you, no problem. I of course have a couple items on order. I will tell you about that later.

The inside view ....

The owner and her mother.... Very nice people!
There is a coffee bar behind the register so I am so sold on this place! I love coffee places as much as I like knitting stores and this is both. I could ask for no more. I am in heaven. My friend Kathy showed me how to knit a toe up sock using a Turkish toe cast on. I really like this cast on because you don't need a provisional cast on and you get a beautiful toe with no seams. I love knitting socks from the toe up for many reasons. I will tell you about that later!

I shared how to do a Turkish toe cast on for a toe up sock with Leah, Nachaele and Christie.
Kathy, Claudia and Christie and enjoying themselves.
Knit Knacks is a knitters haven. It has a friendly atmosphere. There are three tables and a couch set up to entice knitters to come in and knit. I need no more enticing, I will be there as much as I can. It was a fun place. We shopped, we sat, we knitted. We were practically kicked out. Well, only because it was time to close. We were only going to stay a short while but we loved being there so much we stayed as long as we could.
