North Andover’s A Garden for Knitters Moves into Hayscales Exchange

Where Yarns Bloom and Knitters Grow

Popular North Andover yarn shop moves from Water Street to historic building in Old Center.

Owner Jacqui Driscoll has built a strong following at A Garden for Knitters, by showcasing yarns from small independent fiber producers and dyers. Her favorites are yarns produced by organic methods and quality yarns from a producers’ own flocks. It was fun to see all the selections on display. The new location is packed with colorful yarns and tools of the craft.

Knitting is Making a Comeback

I don’t knit, but this shop makes me want to learn how! Lucky for me, they will return to offering full, project-based classes this fall.

A quick Google search shows  you that knitting is making a comeback. My sister and several friends have all expressed an interest in learning to knit. My friend Kitty knits gorgeous Fair Isle patterned sweaters that would cost you $500 to buy. And who doesn’t love a little baby in a sweater and matching hat. My new goal — maybe ambitious — is to knit such a set. Will I see you in a fall class at a Garden for Knitters?

Here’s a peek inside the shop!
