La Casita Yarn Shop

Shop
Knitting is the new trend, but there are surprisingly few places to meet others in the knitting community. La Casita Yarn Shop offers the opportunity to do just that; knit, shop, drink coffee, and meet other people with the same interests as you. Classes are frequently offered by the fire place, so come by for a hot drink and a pastry or a glass of wine, and get knitting.
