f you don’t know how to knit, a store full of yarn and fabric might be intimidating. Not JP Knit & Stitch, a mother-daughter collaboration with the friendliest staff around and a nice homey feel to it. JP Knit & Stitch has colors of yarn you didn’t even know existed, and weekly events to help you put them to use, including stitching, crocheting, sewing, and embroidery classes. There are beginner classes, too. Thornton



More than a third of the 38 million Americans who knit for a hobby are under 44, according to the Yarn Craft Council. Among the knitters: Julia Roberts, Cameron Diaz, Sarah Jessica Parker, Daryl Hannah, Hilary Swank, and Julianna Margulies.
