Shop your heart out for crafty goods in the City by the Bay.

3897 18th Street
From floor to ceiling, everywhere you look you’ll find
yarn, yarn, and more yarn.
Allison Isaacs and the friendly staff at ImagiKnit
are fantastic at helping you find the right yarn you’ll
need for any project. I’ve been coming to this store
since it first opened and I always find inspiration
ogling and touching all the yarns they carry.
You can also just sit in their craft book area and
search for your next project through their extensive
pattern binders, books, and magazines, or sit on their
cozy couches and chairs and cast on your new project.
Hone your craft skills by taking any one of their
classes, from knitting and crochet 101 to spinning.
You’ll definitely find lots of fiber love at ImagiKnit.
Food Match: Stroll across
the street to Samovar Tea
for a pot of green tea and
their tea-infused cookie
plate. Then sit back and
knit or crochet in serenity.
