Imagiknit is the new kid on the block having opened just over a year ago, but their expertise goes well beyond that, just ask co-owner Allison Isaacs whose been knitting since she was knee-high. Nestled between the Castro and the Mission, Imagiknit's storefront is marked by clotheslines draped in the window, dotted with a myriad of tiny knit hats. Walking through the door is like walking into a well-lit cave of yarn. Bins from floor to ceiling are pulsing with color. There's a comfy couch in the front often occupied by an overwhelmed non-knitting companion and a bookcase of magazines and instruction books in the back. There is literally yarn everywhere, piled on the couch, stacked on tables, spilling from baskets on the floor. The staff is more than willing to help and is often found assisting with yarn choosing, guiding a knitter through a tough spot or reversing a stitch gone wrong.
