My first stop on the Yarn Discovery Tour was Knit Wits in Salem, Ohio. When I stopped in there was a table surrounded by friends knitting together and sharing lunch. I loved the camaraderie, and was made to feel welcome.
A display showed off some lovely shawls, including some from the StevenBe trunk show. The shop was very excited to have Steven Berg (StevenBe) himself coming to teach classes on September 12-13.
The magenta shawl in the photo was the free pattern given to Discovery “Tourists” and was designed to use lots of different yarns – a perfect stash-buster.
Knit Wits carries a large variety of yarn, with a good selection of all the weights. Cascade, Berroco, Plymouth and many other brands are well represented here. Beyond yarn, the shop carries lots of fabulous bags, needles, pattern books and all kinds of notions.
