We're not sure whether you know this, but knitting, the stereotypical pastime of grandmas everywhere, is a fairly difficult hobby to take up. You need needles. You need yarn. You need to know how to twist the needles and yarn together to make scarves or mittens or utter trainwrecks of aspirational crafts projects. It's all fairly intimidating, but not at Jessica Knits. The North Scottsdale store is part multi-colored (and sometimes sparkly) yarn mountain and part clubhouse. With workshops on everything from how to knit mittens and socks, how to crochet slippers, and how to craft felted knickknacks, there's plenty of reason to haul up the 101. New to the world of knitting? Jessica offers beginner classes and one-on-one sessions that'll have you purling like a pro.
