Knitting Etc. opens until 9 pm on Dec 13 and 20

If you’re like us here at Knitting Etc, you see lots of things you’d love to receive when you’re out shopping for others’ holiday gifts.  That’s why we keep a wish list for every customer who wants to create one.  Now, to make it easier for the folks who love and shop for you, we will be open until 9 pm on Thursday nights between now and Christmas (Dec. 13 and 20).

So please come in and let us help you create your wish list. We have so many beautiful things you’d love to receive (luxurious shawl kits from

Artyarns, Be Sweet and HPKY; locally crafted wooden yarn bowls), as well as those useful investment items that you never buy for yourself (interchangeable needle sets from Addi, Lantern Moon and Knitter’s Pride; yarn swifts and ball winders), and, of course yarn.  Then send your Santa(s) in on Thursday nights to shop for you.  We’ll make sure you get exactly what you want for Christmas!
