Knit Me Baby, One More Thing.
THE TURN ON: There are many reasons why people knit. In Zen and the Art of Knitting, author Bernadette Murphy cites feeding the soul, resting the mind, ripening the intellect and nurturing the urge to create as tops among them. Whatever your reason for knitting or your skill level, experts and mentors will inevitably be a part of your journey.
WHAT’S THE DEAL: For $65 annually, the Knit & Stitch Shoppe in West Vancouver offers unlimited access to their infinitely patient staff who will teach you to knit from scratch or, if you are an advanced knitter, help you unravel the mysteries of complex patterns and intricate stitches. This expert assistance is available all day everyday, and you can drop in as often as you like to join them on their comfy couches to knit and chat.
WHY WE’RE EXCITED: This is a viable alternative to individual knitting classes. If you struggle with any aspect of a knitting project, these seriously talented knitters can help you out of your jam.
HOW LONG WILL THE PLEASURE LAST: The Stitch & Knit Shoppe, which has been in business for 39 years, has offered this service for the past 16 years, and they have no plans to stop.
WHERE’S THE F SPOT!: The Knit & Stitch Shoppe is located at 2460 Marine Drive in West Vancouver (604-922-1023). For more about the Stitch & Knit Shoppe visit www.knit-n-stitch.biz
