The New KNIT on the Block (apologies to those who are old/young enough to remember, and were hoping for Donnie, Jordan, or Joey) - the ONLY knit in Las Vegas, at the present. And boy, are we glad they're here!
Opened in the summer of 2012, this fabulous little yarn mecca has quickly outgrown its "digs", and is ALREADY moving to a roomier location, across the parking lot. A true testament to an ALWAYS welcoming and helpful atmosphere, as soon as you step foot in the shop, coupled with fabulous fiber finds - the "community" tables are always filled, but the occupants are more than willing to pull up an extra chair for any newcomer. And, I've seen more than one husband in there, from time to time...
Color, texture, clicking needles, and camaraderie...this is the shop, on ANY given day. Rich projects, rich laughter, and rich friendships formed over a simple love of keeping hands busy, and minds sharp...there's one of those husbands in the back, now!
A "color enhanced" shot, but in my mind's eye, this is what I see when I walk through the door - a riot of color (OK, maybe not this extreme, but SO colorful) . Fun displays like this, lend to the charm of the shop.
True colors - beautiful colors - make sure to check out the gorgeous, local-dyed yarns, exclusive to Sin City Knits and the Vegas scene. A fabulous gift idea for your favorite non-local knitter (crocheters, too)! You'll find a great array of yarns for your every project need. Not sure WHAT you need? Creative suggestions abound here!
Classes are plentiful, and the teachers are OUTSTANDING - this is from their "Shawl of the Month Club" knit along. There's always "drop-in-knitting", on a daily basis, with a few evening "Knit Sip Knits" thrown in for good measure. Check the schedule - there's something here for everyone, guaranteed.
A true passion for the "sport" has led Debbi and her crew to turn a small venture "on its ear", and into something very wonderful and successful, in a remarkably short period of time. Kind, compassionate, and HELPFUL - stuck on something as small as one single, confusing stitch, or something as large as figuring out a pattern that's got you stumped? There's always someone willing to show you how...from the "Boss Lady", on down! They've got the market cornered on "NICE", around here.
Custom-dyed yarns from Ethereal Fibers of Las Vegas - again, color enhanced, just for fun. The real colors are as spectacularly wonderful as this yarn is soft - and you won't find these ANYWHERE else but here!
How do I find this fun place, with all the creative energy, you might ask? http://www.sincityknitshop.com/ - clicking on the link above is a great starting point. They're on facebook too, @ Sin City Knit Shop. Searching for your car keys, ready to run out the door?
